Torino training ground closed amid rising coronavirus cases

TURIN, Italy - Torino’s training ground was ordered closed Tuesday because of a number of players testing positive for the coronavirus, the Italian club said.

The team is scheduled to host Sassuolo on Friday but that’s at risk of postponement after all Torino players and coaching staff were instructed to self-isolate at their homes and await further tests.

Three Torino players tested positive for COVID-19 in the buildup to last Friday’s match at Cagliari. Amid reports of more possible cases, the local health authority ordered the temporary closure of the club’s training ground in Turin.

The Italian league’s protocol for COVID-19 cases is the same as UEFA’s rules. If a team has 13 available players, including at least one goalkeeper, the game can go ahead.
