Two members of the Australian Sevens programme have been tested for coronavirus after showing signs and symptoms associated with the pandemic.
Rugby Australia didn’t specify whether they were players or staff, only announcing two people had self-isolated after experiencing symptoms this weekend.
Both had attended the RA high-performance centre within its Moore Park headquarters in Sydney during the past week. As a precautionary measure, the governing body’s headquarters will be closed for two days for an intensive clean.
All administrative staff have been advised to work from home, and the Australian men’s and women’s sevens teams will not attend the facility on Monday or Tuesday.
Results of the tests performed on the rest of the men’s and women’s sevens players and staff are expected to be known within the next 72 hours.
