Two positive at two clubs in latest coronavirus tests

The Hornets already had three people - Adrian Mariappa and two staff - receive a positive result in the Premier League's first round of testing and forced into isolation.

"Players or club staff who have tested positive will now self-isolate for a period of seven days".

Watford have several players, including captain Troy Deeney, staying away from training due to ongoing safety concerns.

"They're all feeling OK, and likewise for their families as well", Pearson said.

"The six who tested positive in the first round of testing are not included in the figures for 19-22 May, as they are still within their seven-day self-isolation period".

"We have to respect those players that take a decision not to return to training, that is their prerogative". "Can we get to that stage where we can have all the players on the pitch together? We are trying, as everybody will be, to establish what is now a more normal working practice in the circumstances that we have". Manager Nigel Pearson also confirmed that two other players are self-isolating after coming into close contact with people who tested positive.

The 29-year-old has not trained at Chelsea's Cobham training ground since Tuesday, although he did return there on Thursday - as did the rest of his team-mates - to undergo the second round of coronavirus testing.

"We have to be prepared to still just prepare with who is available at that time".

Trump says may attend SpaceX manned rocket launch
Being married to an astronaut, both men acknowledged, has made it easier in the unexpectedly long run-up to their SpaceX flight. Together, they will end a nine-year drought for NASA when they blast into orbit next week from Florida's Kennedy Space Center.

"We are encouraged by the return of the German Bundesliga which was the first major European league to restart last weekend, with the successful completion of nine matches, all played behind closed doors".

"It really depends on how the next few weeks develop".

"We're talking to the authorities about that", Masters added.

"We need to see what the results are from Friday's tests are and hopefully we won't get anymore and that will mean we can progress".

"We've listened to what has been said and, with the precautions taken, we will get back to work and start phase one", Bruce said in the Sunday Telegraph, as reported. That will be important for us.

Asked what his message would be to players, Masters said: "We've done everything we possibly can to make return to training as safe as possible for you and therefore for you and your family".

"While no one in the football industry enjoys seeing football without fans in the stadiums, the TV audiences attracted to the German matches demonstrates the strong pent-up demand for live football after a two-month absence".

One club owner is said to have asserted that he was confident that it would be a surprise if the clubs vote against the move as this will be the second step in their protocol list as they seek to return to full training in weeks to come. "I don't think it will change the game program, that is what I am led to believe".
