PSG Players and Staff Will Undergo Testing for Coronavirus 48-Hours Before Cup Finals

Despite France allowing 5,000 spectators to attend live sporting events, the country, like the rest of the world, is still on edge due to the coronavirus pandemic.

As so, there are health protocols that clubs need to follow, and this includes testing for coronavirus. For the two domestic cup finals left on the 2019-20 calendar, Le Parisien is reporting that the French Football Federation will conduct test 48-hours before the matches take place.

Those that will undergo testing include all players participating and members from the coaching and medical staff. Furthermore, others with no involvement with the clubs, like the security guards and media members, will also undergo tests.

Along with receiving the Nasopharyngeal swab 48-hours before the match, the squads will have a clinical examination and a questionnaire the next day.

PSG will play AS Saint-Étienne in the Coupe de France final on July 24, and Olympique Lyonnais in the Coupe de la Ligue final on July 31.
