    Italian govt agrees to ‘soft’ quarantine before Serie A return

    Milan (AFP) – The Italian government on Thursday agreed to ease quarantine restrictions for football teams in the case of a positive coronavirus test as Serie A prepares to return to action this weekend.

    Italian football federation president Gabriele Gravina hailed the decision as “another step forward for the completion of this sporting season”.

    The required two-week quarantine period for the entire team and staff in the case of a positive test for COVID-19 would have made it difficult for the championship to conclude.

    Health Minister Roberto Speranza gave the green light to a “soft” quarantine, meaning that if a positive case is discovered only the infected person will be isolated.

    The squad and staff will be closely monitored and a quick test will be performed on the whole team on the day of the match.

    Gravina added: “I now hope now with a great sense of responsibility, starting from the fans who fuel the passion for football every day, that we adopt behaviour that does not nullify the efforts being made.”
