Two members of Football Club Barcelona’s first team staff have tested positive for coronavirus.
“The whole squad will undergo further PCR testing on Tuesday morning local time in line with La Liga protocol,” the Spanish club said, in a statement on Monday.
Barcelona added that the first team training session planned for Tuesday morning had been postponed.
A new time for the session ahead of Wednesday’s La Liga match at Athletic Bilbao is yet to be announced.
Ronald Koeman’s side are fifth in the Spanish top flight, 10 points behind league leaders Atletico Madrid having played one game more.
Their match at Bilbao is a rescheduled game from the second round of La Liga fixtures.
