The boss has shown that certain members of the first-team squad have been forced to take in a span of self-isolation.
Brendan Rodgers has shown that”a few players” in his Leicester group have revealed”signs and symptoms” of coronavirus.
Because of this, the Foxes have made sure that those concerned are taking in a span of self-isolation.
They’ve been kept away from the rest of the first-team fold, in a bid to keep the virus from spreading, but it remains to be seen what perspective authorities will take on the situation in the King Power Stadium.
As things stand, Leicester’s excursion to Watford on Saturday is supposed to take place as intended.
Arsenal, however, saw their Premier League meeting with Manchester City postponed on Wednesday after members of the Gunners staff came into contact with Olympiacos proprietor Evangelos Marinakis — who’s tested positive for Covid-19 – through a Europa League encounter between the two clubs.
There’s absolutely no indication at present that the Foxes will be forced to shelve their plans to go to Vicarage Road.
Rodgers believes all regulations are adhered to, telling reporters: “We have had a couple of players that have shown signs and symptoms (of coronavirus).
“We have followed processes and (as a precaution) they’ve been kept away from the group.”
English football has thus far avoided making the extreme calls that other major divisions in Europe have been forced into.
Serie A has closed down in Italy – with Juventus defender Daniele Rugani and Sampdoria striker Manolo Gabbiadini contracting coronavirus – with La Liga showing that they’ll do likewise for the next two rounds of fixtures.
Several other leagues have proceeded games behind closed doors, while similar events are being performed in the Champions League and Europa League.
Rodgers is one of those expecting that turnstiles can stay available in England, but admits that Leicester and their national competitions must listen and adhere to the recommendation of relevant authorities.
He added: “Obviously, from a football standpoint, it would be a shame, but the public’s health is the most important aspect in all this.
“Working in soccer, it is about getting that agility to proceed with what is happening in soccer. We are guided by soccer and federations. We must press on with our job and prepare as normal.
“The game is about the players and the fans. In case you’ve got one of those not there, it is obviously different.”
