First team players and members of Exeter City's coaching and medical teams were tested for Covid-19 last week as part of the ‘return to playing’ testing regime at the club.
Following this first phase, two tests have returned positive results.
The club has introduced strict measures around testing and visiting the training ground. The two from the group who had tested positive, had not displayed any symptoms associated with Covid-19.
In line with protocols set out by the EFL, they both began a seven day period of self isolation following confirmation of the positive tests and will only return to the training ground once they have a confirmed negative test.
Exeter City FC will be respecting medical confidentiality and not naming those involved.
