Mladá Boleslav informed about the positive finding on its website. “This is one player with a wider staff, who is without symptoms of the disease,” said club spokesman Jiří Koros. “All other players and the implementation team will go for control tests today,” he added.
If another positive test does not appear, the Central Czechs will be ready for Sunday’s match with the Bohemians 1905. The Prague team had additional negative tests, the initial tests revealed four infected. They were originally supposed to face five days of isolation, but the competition management said that if the “Kangaroos” were negative in the second round of controls, they would be able to play.

Ostrava can start the match in Karviná after the second round of negative tests, in whose team Friday’s tests revealed one infected person. Baník thus imitated Plzeň and Olomouc, where the infection also appeared during the first round of tests, but after additional checks of negative team members, they also received permission to play.
They are also waiting for the results of the second wave of pre-match tests in České Budějovice. In total, six clubs had positive coronavirus findings immediately before the first round of the new season.
Master Slavia also had a problem with coronavirus, which had to end its training in Austria prematurely due to a positive single player test. The team from Eden was in isolation after returning, but the second round of tests was already negative and the team could return to preparation. The infected player remained in quarantine.
