Tyrone’s All-Ireland semi-final against Kerry has been thrown into doubt after the camp has been hit with more Covid complications.
A number of players and manager Fergal Logan missed last week’s Ulster Championship win in Croke Park due to positive cases in the camp.
And now the Ulster champions are in danger of not being able to fulfil their fixture as the camp has been further rocked by the virus.
Tyrone are due to take on Kerry in the mouth-watering All-Ireland semi-final next weekend but with the camp hit by the virus it is becoming a real possibility that the game may be postponed and it is believed that the side were unable to train ahead of the game., reports the Irish Mirror.
Tyrone released a statement on Saturday: “Further to a number of positive Covid19 tests with members of the Tyrone senior football panel and management, prior to last weekend’s successful Ulster Championship final in Croke Park, it was decided to have all panellists and management tested for the virus.
“While outcomes from these tests are awaited a number of players are self-isolating; it is anticipated that all outcomes will be known by Monday and preparations can then be made for the forthcoming All-Ireland semi final with Kerry.
“During the past week Tyrone GAA has continued to comply, fully, with the guidelines and directives that have been issued by the Public Health Authority and by Croke Park.”
Speaking after the game last week, co-manager Brian Dooher told media: “It left us down a few players. That’s the environment we are in at the moment. You have a high level of Covid in the community and our people live in the community.
“They keep themselves to themselves as much as possible but there are risk factors out there.
“We will go back to look at it next week. Everybody is due back in on Tuesday.”
