The Polish men’s volleyball side Trefl Gdańsk informed that one of its players was tested positive for the coronavirus.


Trefl, who recently announced withdrawing from the participation in the European cups next season, revealed that one of their players was tested positive for the new coronavirus. In order to protect the privacy of an athlete, the Gdańsk team didn’t disclose his name. Due to this, the entire team, the training staff, and all club employees were sent to the self-isolation and are waiting for further recommendations from the polish Department of Health and Safety.

The player who was diagnosed with COVID-19 began his isolation even before receiving the test results. All persons who have recently had contact with an athlete for at least 15 minutes, at a distance of fewer than 1.5 m, and without masks have already been reported to the State Sanitary Inspection. The Trefl’s training sessions have been suspended.

Last Friday, July 17, Trefl met with fans on the beach, but the conditions in which the meeting took place (outdoors, with a significant part of the distance between players and fans) weren’t considered potentially dangerous to spread the virus, the club posted on its website. The player who was diagnosed with the coronavirus didn’t even take part in this event.

There was a case of the coronavirus infection in the Polish women's club volleyball as well.

FIVB releases COVID-19 guidelines for restart of volleyball activities

At last the guidelines on Covid-19, from a top governing volleyball body.... I appreciate them. It is a progress. Some of recommendations are general, some specific for volleybal. It seems to be the soft legal instrument. Nevertheless they could assist to national VFs… Majority of recommendations are reasonable, some of them should not be a problem to kept, some will need a much bigger effort to be kept, some should be included yet. For this goal, there should be obtained a support (best voluntary) and discipline from athletes, coaches, officials, referees , medical staff, club owners, fans etc - realised what is in a stake… Media will have an important role in that..
For implementing of these measures there should be probably prepared also some Roadmap.. Perhaps it would be a suitable to consider the responsibility for pertinent officials, positions, and how to enforce crucial measures, recommendations, specified for this sport - if the situation would be worsen ....
We can hope , that these epidemiological preventive measures will be only temporary and volleyball will return soon to halls, and fans could see their teams personally.
