Referees negative for COVID-19

Serie A and B referees and assistants all underwent COVID-19 tests and the results came back negative.

It’s not just players and coaching staff who need regular coronavirus tests, but also the match officials who will participate in the Serie A and B games.

A statement confirmed that the 22 Serie A officials and 15 for Serie B, along with their assistants, all had a full medical screening, including COVID-19 tests.

They will remain at the Coverciano training camp until June 10 to get back up to full fitness.

Once the games resume, the officials will be asked to social distance as much as possible on matchday, travelling to and from the stadium in their own cars.
