“We are winding down, we only admit those with symptoms, so if you do not have symptoms, we allow you to stay at home and recuperate,” the source said.

He also said he could not confirm if any of the positive cases in Kwara United was with symptom or not because he did not know them.

Earlier, the state Covid-19 team recently conducted tests for all the players and staff of the club at their office at the Kwara Stadium complex.

The exercise was among other requirements by the League Management Company (LMC) for teams in the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) to take part in the 2020/2021 season.
