All players and officials have been placed in self-isolation, while training has been suspended for 10 days.
A Balestier Khalsa player has been placed in quarantine after testing positive for COVID-19, the Football Association of Singapore (FAS) announced on Sunday (Sep 20).
The positive case was detected through the mandatory weekly swab tests that all Singapore Premier League (SPL) players and club officials have to undergo.
All Balestier Khalsa players and staff have begun self-isolating and training sessions have been suspended for 10 days. Additionally, they will have to undergo Fast & Easy Testing (FET) on Tuesday and Thursday, as well as a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test on Saturday.
Balestier’s games against Hougang United on Sep 24 and Geylang International on Sep 29 will be postponed. The game against Geylang was initially scheduled for Sep 19, but had been postponed after a Geylang player tested positive for the virus last week.
The Tigers’ last SPL match was against Tanjong Pagar United at the Toa Payoh Stadium on Sep 12, which they won 1-0.
“The respective venue operators at Toa Payoh Stadium and Jalan Besar Stadium have been notified and the necessary deep cleaning protocols for their facilities have since commenced,” said FAS in its statement.
