The three-month pause in Serie A will end on June 20 with a confrontation between Torino and Parma. Italian authorities have eased strict regulations for clubs. According to the latest changes, the quarantine will no longer apply to the entire team.
Italian Sports Minister Vincenzo Spadafora and Health Minister Roberto Speranza have signed a document envisaging much more lenient rules for quarantine in the event of a coronavirus accident.
The medical protocol originally adopted in Italy stated that if a coronavirus was found to a player, coach or club employee, the entire team had also to leave for a two-week quarantine. This caused dissatisfaction in the clubs, and the Technical Training Committee later acknowledged that the protocol was too strict.
So, according to the updated version, the isolation rule will only apply to a person who is directly infected. At the same time, the rest of the club will conduct express tests on Coronavirus.
The renewal of the Italian championship is scheduled for June 20, with the match between Torino and Parma. After an incomplete 26 rounds in Serie A, Turin’s Juventus (63 points) are at the top of the tournament table. Rome’s Lazio is one point behind. Inter Milan, which is in the third position, has one game less and 54 points in tohe tournament.
