Group training ready to resume: scientific committee gives the OK to Serie A’s new medical protocols

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.
