Docker tests negative to COVID -19

Fremantle have confirmed that a player who was sent for precautionary tests for COVID -19 has tested negative to the virus.


Dockers CEO Simon Garlick said that he was very pleased to confirm the news.


“Given the club’s position in the community, we made a decision on Monday afternoon to take a very conservative approach even though the player did not fit all the WA Health Department criteria for COVID-19 testing. Garlick said. “We understand the high level of interest surrounding one of our players being sent for precautionary testing for COVID-19. “The facts are that the player presented with flu-like symptoms after being in contact with a friend who had visited China, even though that person had self-isolated for 14 days following his return to the country and hadn’t displayed any symptoms of the virus. “It was another two weeks after the isolation period that the friend visited the player late last month.
