Australian Sevens set for COVID-19 tests

NEWS: Rugby Australia has confirmed two members of the Australian Sevens program will be tested for COVID-19 after showing signs and symptoms associated with the virus.


The two members of the program both self-isolated after experiencing symptoms this weekend.

Both had attended the Rugby Australia High Performance centre at Moore Park in the week.

As a precautionary measure, Rugby Australia headquarters has been closed for two days for an intensive clean.

All administrative staff have been advised to work from home, and the Australian Men’s and Women’s Sevens teams will not attend the facility on Monday or Tuesday.

Rugby Australia has implemented a stringent policy with regards to any player or staff member that experiences symptoms associated with the virus.

The policy concerns any person who starts to exhibit signs and symptoms of the virus that has recently traveled overseas to any country or has been in direct contact with someone known to have the virus.


The person must self-isolate for 14 days and be tested for COVID-19.

Results of the tests are expected to be known within 72 hours.
