“We have notified PSL through our team doctor and all the people involved. We ask that those who test positive are not stigmatized but supported. Thank you,” concluded the Swallows Chairperson.

Absa Premiership and GladAfrica Championship teams are conducting tests for Covid-19 in preparation for the restart of the 2019/20 season as the government have given the PSL the green-light and approved their plans for a safe return to action.

Meanwhile, in the Absa Premiership, four clubs have recorded Covid-19 cases. Bloemfontein Celtic [1], Kaizer Chiefs [2], Stellenbosch FC [3] and Orlando Pirates [1].
