THE GAA has issued guidance to clubs on how to deal with suspected or confirmed cases of Covid-19.

In a statement on, GAA Director of Player, Club, and Games Administration Fergal McGill said:

“It is quite simple, if someone in a club gets the symptoms of Covid they should contact their GP.

If their GP thinks they need to then they will arrange testing. Public health then take over. If it is a negative test the player can return to activity, if it is a positive test and the player has Covid, public health will then take over.

Public health will do an assessment on the player’s movements in the previous days and will make a decision as to who should be considered a close contact or a casual contact in a GAA context.”
