FC “Jelgava” after the discovery of Covid-19 almost the whole team goes to self-isolation / Article / LSM.lv

One of the players of the football club “Jelgava” is infected with Covid-19, but another 18 team players and two coaches have been granted the status of contact persons, the unit informs.

Following the decision of the Centers for Disease Prevention and Control (SCCP), the team has been quarantined until December 2.

This means that “Jelgava” does not have the opportunity to participate in the Premier League championship games scheduled for November 26 and 29 with Jūrmala “Spartaka” and “Liepāja” units.

The Zemgale team currently takes the seventh place in the tournament table and can only theoretically retreat to the ninth position, which would make them take part in the playoffs for maintaining a place in the Super League.

It has already been reported that an outbreak of Covid-19 was detected at the football club “Riga”, where 29 people became infected with Covid-19. The three patients were also reported this week by the RFS unit, some of which were contact persons for “Riga” players.

At the meeting of the Latvian Football Super League last Friday, a decision was made by a majority to support the proposal not to continue the Optibet Latvian Football Super League season due to the difficult situation of Covid-19, but on Monday the LFF did not accept this proposal.

The statement of the Premier League emphasized that the incidence rates of Covid-19 in Latvia continue to increase, but the first infected were also identified in the Latvian national football team, where 19 Premier League players were among the candidates.
