The Wellington Phoenix advises that a member of its staff who tested positive for Covid-19 last month has now fully recovered and been reunited with their family.
The person was tested following their return to New Zealand as a precaution after showing minor symptoms. Following strict Ministry of Health advice, they immediately quarantined themselves from the public and their bubble.
The staff member has praised both the club and the media for respecting his privacy and that of that of his family during a difficult time. They are now focussing on preparing for a potential finish of the Hyundai A-League 2019/20 season and beyond.
No other staff member on the trip has tested positive for Covid-19.
