The Premier League has confirmed that between Monday 24 January and Sunday 30 January, 1,947 COVID-19 tests were administered on players and club staff. Of these, there were 11 new positive cases. Overall testing numbers are lower in this reporting period due to squads being away from training grounds as a result of the Premier League’s mid-season player break.
It was also confirmed 85 per cent of players have received one, two or three COVID-19 vaccination doses, with 92 per cent of players and club staff on the vaccination journey. Players who have had one or two doses are required to wait for the appropriate time period before receiving either their second or booster vaccinations.
The League continues to work with clubs to encourage vaccination among players and club staff, as well as promoting the Government’s public health vaccination messaging. No specific details as to clubs or individuals will be provided by the League.
