After several disagreements and controversies, Italy’s scientific committee has finally OK’d the medical protocols presented by the Lega Serie A.
As a result, Il Messaggero reports that group training for all clubs can resume immediately.
Both the Italian FA (FIGC) and Lega Serie A protested against the medical protocols that were originally introduced by Italy’s scientific committee — which required an entire team to go into quarantine for 15 days if a player tested positive.
The new protocols, though, will only require that specific player who tests positive to go into quarantine — not the entire team.
Furthermore, the number of tests given to each player will also increase: each player will be given two swabs in the first 24 hours, then another every four days. Blood tests will also be given every 14 days.
