Two individuals in two Premier League clubs have tested positive for the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) in the latest round of testing.
Tests were carried out on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday of last week, with 996 players and club staff tested overall.
This time the tests available to each club was increased from 40 to 50.
The affected individuals were, however, not named.
Anyone affiliated with a Premier League club who tests positive must self-isolate for seven days and cannot attend the club training ground, according to the league’s protocol.
That included Watford player, Adrian Mariappa, and Burnley assistant manager, Ian Woan.
A total of 748 players and club staff were tested between 17-18 May.
The 20 teams in England’s top-flight league started non-contact training from Tuesday.
They are expected to later this week vote on whether to begin contact training.
The Premier League has been suspended since 13 March because of the coronavirus pandemic, with 92 fixtures remaining.
