Clarity upon Covid-19 situation in Tyrone expected next week

Tyrone County Board has said they should know how serious the Covid-19 situation in their camp is next week.

A number of players have been forced to self-isolate with reports of positive tests amongst the squad on Saturday.

It is not known though how many players have been affected as they prepare for their All-Ireland Senior Championship semi-final against Tyrone next weekend.

Tiernan McCann, Richie Donnelly, Frank Burns, Rory Brennan and joint-manager Feargal Logan missed last weekend’s Ulster final after a positive case in the camp.

In a statement issued by the county board on Saturday afternoon, they said they expect a clearer picture early next week.

"Further to a number of positive Covid19 tests with members of the Tyrone senior football panel and management, prior to last weekend’s successful Ulster Championship final in Croke Park, it was decided to have all panellists and management tested for the virus.

"While outcomes from these tests are awaited a number of players are self-isolating; it is anticipated that all outcomes will be known by Monday and preparations can then be made for the forthcoming All-Ireland semi final with Kerry.

"During the past week Tyrone GAA has continued to comply, fully, with the guidelines and directives that have been issued by the Public Health Authority and by Croke Park."
