Two members of the Sydney Roosters Apollo register have notified the Club that they have each visited a site which has since been identified as a hot spot.
These players have been notified by NSW Health that they are considered a close contact of a confirmed COVID-transmission. There has been no breach of the NSW Health order or the NRL Apollo protocol by either player.
Roosters training was cancelled today after Fletcher Baker was deemed a close contact after purchasing groceries at a Sydney supermarket which has since been named a hot spot.
Baker has undergone a COVID-19 test and returned a negative result, and is currently adhering to the mandatory 14-day self-isolation.
Brad Abbey is currently in isolation and awaiting the results of a COVID-19 test after the apartment building in which he is currently residing recorded a COVID-19 case. He is awaiting further advice from NSW Health.
Pending the return of a negative result for Abbey tomorrow, the Roosters will resume training.
