Norwich City has confirmed three COVID-19 positive cases and the individuals concerned are self-isolating.
Goalkeeper Tim Krul announced on his Twitter page that he is one of the three people to return a positive test.
Every EFL club has been subjected to a round of COVID-19 tests this week, the first mandated round since the season began in September.
Although Norwich played a Barnsley side on Saturday that had been dealing with their own COVID-19 outbreak the previous week, Norwich’s positive tests are not believed to be as a result of that game going ahead.
A club statement read, “Norwich City can confirm that the club’s latest round of COVID-19 testing across players and backroom staff has returned three positive results.
“Players and backroom staff were tested and results received over the early stages of this week. In line with government, EFL and club protocols, all three individuals immediately began a period of self-isolation.
“The health and safety of all Norwich City players and staff remains paramount, with the club continuing to follow stringent protocols and guidelines across its Carrow Road and Lotus Training Centre sites.”
“The club wishes all three individuals a safe and speedy recovery ahead of their return to work, training and competition.”
The EFL announced on Wednesday that from Monday there will be twice-weekly testing across the three divisions.
