Australian Open organizers will allow all tennis players to the tournament, even with “covid”
Australian Open players who test positive for coronavirus will be allowed to continue competing if they feel well. The chief executive said Tennis Australia Craig Teely, according to The Age newspaper.
There will be no mandatory COVID-19 testing requirements for tennis players. But the head of Australian tennis recommended that those who feel unwell stay at home.
Players are requested to report a positive test result to the organizers so that medical staff can monitor their health.
