Other Covid-19 positive cases have been detected in FC Zurich. These are 6 players and 3 staff members, announced the FCZ on its website. They were tested following the proven case concerning Mirlind Kryeziu. The club is in quarantine until July 17.
The entire team is isolated at home. The club follows the recommendations of the FOPH and the cantonal health authorities.
Friday, FC Zurich announced that their defender Mirlind Kryeziu was positive for Covid-19. The matches scheduled for Saturday against Sion and Tuesday in Basel have been postponed. The SFL and the clubs are in contact to determine the next steps.
The postponement of these two matches will further complicate the situation at the level of an already very busy calendar. The championship is scheduled to end on August 2. The various Leagues must in fact announce to UEFA on August 3 which clubs have qualified for European competitions.

And now what do we do?
“The SFL will inform at the beginning of next week on the decisions taken regarding the rest of the season,” said SFL chief communications officer Philippe Guggisberg. At first, it was decided that a team could continue to play even if one or more players were infected. Only since the announcement of the resumption of the season at the end of May, health responsibilities are again subject to the cantonal authorities. The decision of the Zurich cantonal doctor who placed the team in quarantine upset the protocol established by the SFL.
