Plymouth Argyle FC can confirm that two individuals have tested positive for COVID-19.
The club opted to undertake an additional round of testing following an outbreak at Leyton Orient, where Argyle played last week in the Carabao Cup.
Both cases – including one member of the Pilgrims’ playing squad, and one non-playing staff member at Home Park – are asymptomatic. The individuals will now follow Public Health England and EFL guidelines, and will self-isolate.
As a matter of course, the club has informed our most recent opposition, AFC Wimbledon, of the test results before publishing this statement.
Saturday’s Sky Bet League One fixture against Shrewsbury Town will go ahead as scheduled.
The club will make no further comment.
