“Manchester City FC can confirm that Gabriel Jesus, Kyle Walker and two employees have tested positive for COVID-19. All four employees will now have a period of self-isolation in accordance with the Premier League and UK government protocol on quarantine.

With the new strain of coronavirus making a big impact in London and the South East of England, the Premier League has announced plans to step up testing for clubs in Tier 4 areas (with the highest state restrictions) as well as PL clubs based on lower levels .
Fulham boss Scott Parker will not sit on the bench on Boxing Day after a member of his household tests positive for COVID-19 and is forced to self-isolate. Only two of the 20 Premier League clubs (Everton and Liverpool) are currently allowed a maximum of 2,000 fans at home games due to the UK government's COVID-19 restrictions.
In the minor leagues of English football, some festive games have been postponed due to significant COVID-19 outbreaks among players and staff, and the Premier League will do everything in its power to ensure that everyone connected to the competition is as safe as they can get possible cases continue to rise in England.
Noteworthy is the fact that the PL has only postponed one game so far this season due to a COVID-19 outbreak.
