Juventus isolation to end tomorrow

March 24, 2020

Juventus players and staff are expected to end their voluntary quarantine tomorrow but self-isolation will continue afterwards.

The Bianconeri underwent voluntary isolation after Daniele Rugani tested positive for the Coronavirus while some players remained at the Juventus Hotel for two weeks.

A total of 121 players and staff have been self-isolating since shortly after Juve’s 2-0 win over Inter but the two week isolation period is due to end.

The entirety of the squad reportedly underwent swab testing with only three players testing positive: Paulo Dybala, Blaise Matuidi and Rugani.

Matuidi tested positive 17 March meaning his self-isolation will end 31 March – Dybala’s test was confirmed positive on 21 March, which will leave him isolating until 4 April.

For now, Italy remains on lockdown and the Coninassa training centre is closed, meaning players will continue to train at home.

Douglas Costa, Sami Khedira, Gonzalo Higuain and Miralem Pjanic all tested negative and have travelled to be with their families in the interim.
