Every club in the EFL is currently taking part in twice-weekly COVID-19 testing as the world of football, and the sporting world as a whole, continues to play its games behind closed doors.

Released via EFL.com, the EFL confirmed that a total of 5470 players and Club staff from all 72 EFL Clubs were tested as part of last week’s testing programme, with 16 positive cases returned.

A twice-weekly COVID-19 mandatory testing programme is now in place for all 72 Clubs, with today’s results covering all tests undertaken from Monday, 1st to Sunday, 7th February. 64 EFL Clubs returned zero positive tests over this period.

Players or Club staff who have tested positive will self-isolate in line with latest Government guidance.

Additional information
  • Testing will not eliminate risk and must be used in conjunction with the protocols already being followed across all EFL Clubs
  • Lateral flow devices (LFDs) deliver a rapid assessment on whether someone is infectious or not
  • If an individual tests positive using LFD they will be required to undertake a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) antigen test
  • The EFL regularly reviews its COVID-19 protocols and guidance in-line with government advice.
