Giants close training ground due to Covid-19
Huddersfield Giants have become the second Betfred Super League club to temporarily close their training ground as a pre-caution following a number of positive COVID-19 tests.
Leeds Rhinos announced earlier today (Thursday) that they have also opted to close their Kirkstall training ground for a minimum of five days following seven positive test results in the past 10 days.
Giants Managing Director Richard Thewlis said “We have followed the guidelines laid down precisely and quickly which meant that following this morning's lateral flow testing a threshold was hit whereby we immediately closed our facility and will take a five day break again as per the guidelines.
"In that time the training centre will undergo a full deep clean and in order for a return to training to be sanctioned further testing will take place for all staff and players next week.”
