Positive Covid-19 case in first team squad
One member of the first team squad tested positive for Covid-19 on Wednesday. The rest of the tests returned negative results.
The player in question was already undergoing voluntary and precautionary self-isolation at their home after developing symptoms before the result of the test. During the round of testing on Friday (20/11), the player produced a negative result.
Team doctor Dr. Patrick Ingelfinger is in constant contact with the Gelsenkirchen health authority and other relevant parties to discuss and introduce further measures. Schalke 04 will naturally follow and carry out all demands and regulation completely and asks that the privacy of the player in question is respected.
