The Fiji 7s players who played at the Los Angeles and Vancouver tournaments are safe according to the Fiji Rugby Union.
FRU Chief Executive John O’Connor says the 7s players are safe and have been cleared from isolation by the Ministry of Health with no players so far showing any symptoms of the COVID-19 virus.
O’Connor says the players also did not return home via the San Francisco flight with Fiji’s first COVID-19 victim.
The FRU has arranged with their High-Performance Coaches including the Men and Women’s 7s teams to manage their athletes and training environments in compliance to the regulations announced yesterday by the government.
O’Connor adds FRU has suspended all forms of competition and events across the nation with immediate effect, until further notice
“The FRU has made a decision that we cancel all our domestic competitions until further notice and until the review of the Governments position and the Board has also instructed that we contact all our affiliates and ask them to likewise all their club games gathered together in one game”.
This decision has been made in light of the enhanced controls announced by the Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama yesterday, upon the discovery of a positive case of COVID-19 in Lautoka.
