A Donegal senior footballer has tested positive for Covid-19, the Donegal County Board has confirmed.
Declan Bonner’s side are due to take on Tyrone in the Ulster SFC quarter-final on Sunday, November 1 and have back-to-back Allianz League matches the two weekends beforehand – home to Tyrone and away to Kerry.
The Donegal County Board statement reads:
“After a long hiatus, and in line with GAA guidelines, the Donegal Senior squad returned to collective training this week. All of the squad were tested for Covid-19 and one of the squad has had a positive result.
These are difficult and trying times for all in the GAA and the wider community. CLG Dhún na nGall urge all club members, particularly players at all age levels, to adhere to the guidelines which have been set out and can be found on the Wellness tab on our website.”
Last night the Competitions’ Controls Committee confirmed they are postponing the Senior B and Intermediate B Championships due to the increase in cases in Donegal and because of the number of postponements requested by clubs.
