The statement added that the team will undertake a second test ahead of their CAF Champions League game against CI Kamsar.
“The management of Accra Hearts of Oak is hereby notifying the club’s fan base and the general public that having carried out mandatory testing of its players and officials for COVID-19, a few of the members tested positive for the virus. Those affected are currently in isolation, though they are all asymptomatic and in good spirit. We want to assure our supporters that this development will not hamper our preparation for the CAF Champions League. All the players and officials will be retested and even more stringent measures put in place to ensure no further spread of the virus.
We will once again take this opportunity to encourage everybody to observe the associated protocols at all times, as we continue to adjust to life with this deadly virus.”
Hearts of Oak are 15 days away from the first leg encounter set to come off in Guinea on September 12, before the second leg in two weeks time at the Accra Sports Stadium.
