The BCCI’s standard operating procedure (SOP) says a player/support staff who tests positive for COVID-19 must isolate in the designated area outside the bio-secure environment for a minimum of 10 days from the first day of symptoms or the date of collection of the sample which resulted in a positive RT-PCR report, whichever is earlier.
“During the 10-day isolation, the individual must rest and avoid any exercises. The team doctor should regularly monitor the case. If symptoms worsen during the course of isolation, the individual must be hospitalised immediately,” the SOP states.
The Rohit Sharma-led side has played four games and accumulated as many points after winning two games. Mumbai Indians will next take on Punjab Kings at the MA Chidambaram Stadium on Friday.
