Rewa officials, players told to self-isolate

 Rewa football players and officials have been asked to go in strict isolation as of this morning.

President Nazeel Buksh said the call follows a potential COVID-19 outbreak and subsequent curfew in Lautoka and Nadi since this morning.

Rewa won 2-0 against Ba at Churchill Park in Lautoka yesterday and Buksh confirmed their players are not vaccinated and as a result self-isolation is necessary.

 “Rewa Football Association team management are in contact with Ministry of Health officials on precautionary steps and possibility of getting COVID-19 tests for all players and officials.”

“We request our traveling fans that travelled to Lautoka for yesterday’s match to also self-isolate. Once testing is organised by MoH, we will advise our fans to come forward and get tested to avoid developing COVID-19 case.”

“Some of the players' family members were only vaccinated but the players did not receive the vaccine which ultimately means that they need to quarantine themselves at home. Our officials were also told this morning not to move out of their bubble and come into contact with anyone,” Bush said. 

“Family members of the players and officials who had come in contact since last night are also requested to self-isolate.”

“We will rely on MoH guidance in this matter. In the interim all training and team sessions are suspended. Stay safe and please follow MoH guidelines in order to stop the spread of COVID-19,” he added.
