The Football Association of Malawi (FAM) COVID-19 Task Force in conjunction with the Super League of Malawi (SULOM) would like to inform the general public that as part of the COVID 19 Contact tracing protocol in the Ministry of Health COVID 19 guidelines, all Moyale Barracks players and officials were on Thursday December 31,2020 tested for COVID 19.
This was after Moyale Barracks played Nyasa Big Bullets, who registered nine positive cases a day after the two teams met on Saturday December 26, 2020.
We are pleased to announce that the results for the whole Moyale Barracks FC delegation as well as the Referees & Stewards involved in the said match came out negative.
In line with MoH Covid19 Contact tracing protocol Mighty Tigers FC players and officials who were in contact with Moyale Barracks on Sunday December 27,2020, will not be required to go for COVID-19 test.
However we would like to encourage Nyasa Bullets, Moyale and Might Tigers to continue close monitoring of their players and officials and refer for a test those who may develop any COVID 19 related symptoms.
FAM appreciates the continued support being rendered to its stakeholders by both Ministries of Health and Population and Ministry of Youth and Sports and Our mother body, Malawi National Council of Sports.
FAM COVID 19 Taskforce and Sulom would like to encourage all football stakeholders to continue observing COVID-19 preventive measurers by putting on masks, social distancing, practicing hand hygiene and stay at home where possible.
