Italian Serie A clubs will resume training from May 18

It added that the government’s changes “confirm the line of prudence followed so far by the relevant ministries.”

Spadafora said two weeks ago that the protocol was insufficient and threw doubt on whether the season would be able to restart.

The FIGC has said that for the start of team training, each club should form a group of players, technical staff, doctors, physiotherapists and other staff who have tested negative for the virus and isolate them in a summer-style training camp.

It said all members of the group should be tested for the coronavirus in the 96 hours before the start of the training camp.

They will also be subject to extensive swab and antibody testing during the camp.

Players who have previously tested positive and since recovered will be undergo additional medical tests to find out if there are underlying health issues or side effects.

There are 12 rounds of matches still to play in Serie A plus a number of games from previous rounds. Title holders Juventus are one point clear of Lazio at the top.
