Positive COVID test delays Portuguese rehearsal

Maro at her first rehearsal

A member of the Portuguese delegation has tested positive for COVID 19 while undergoing routine antigenic testing at the PalaOlimpico venue in Turin. Portugal will continue with their scheduled rehearsal this afternoon.

They are feeling well and displaying no symptoms. In accordance with the health and safety protocol in force for the event, the delegation member now needs to take a further (PCR) test and will return to their hotel for seven days of isolation.

The rules in place do not mean the rest of the team need to isolate. They will continue to wear FFP2 masks at all times when not performing.

Just in case you were wondering, it’s not Maro!
