The Club has confirmed that, a staff’s spouse has returned from overseas on 18 March and the staff member failed to report to the club and to quaratine at home as mandated by club regulation. His spouse has been diagnosed this afternoon as "preliminary positive" for COVID-19. As a precautionary measure advised by the Medical Team, the First team and staff from the Jockey Club Kitchee Centre will be consulted by doctors on Monday and test kits will be distributed on the same day. The test samples will be collected on Tuesday morning and test results will be expected by Wednesday.
Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the Club has previously suspended all Academy programmes and public bookings at the Jockey Club Kitchee Centre since early February. In recent weeks, the Centre has undergone a stringent and thorough cleaning and disinfecting exercise. In response to the government closure of the recreational facilities, the Jockey Club Kitchee Centre was closed for all football team training since 24 March. In view of the current situation, the Centre will be locked down completely to undergo deep cleaning procedures until further notice.
The Club continues to monitor the situation closely and to take suitable measures to protect the health of its employees.
