The Joint Response Group has been notified that St Mirren Football Club has today returned seven positive tests for COVID-19.
We immediately contacted the Scottish Government and the office of the Clinical Director for Scotland to relay this information.
As a consequence, St Mirren’s planned friendly match at home to St Johnstone, scheduled to take place on Saturday 25 July, has been cancelled.
In light of this and other recent events, the JRG hereby notifies Scottish Premiership clubs that with immediate effect they must revert to twice-weekly testing protocols until further notice.
