First positive Covid-19 test during Grand Prix weekend in Brno


The 2020 MotoGP World Championship is currently run without an audience, closed behind and under strict Covid-19 protocol. Despite the strict rules and 5500 Covid-19 tests now carried out, a first positive test was observed in Brno on Saturday. It concerns an employee of Dorna Sports.

After more than 5,500 tests that have already been carried out on all staff working in the current MotoGP paddock during the first two Grand Prix weekends in Jerez and prior to the Monster Energy Grand Prix České republiky in Brno, which will be held this weekend, it is now known made that one person tested positive on Saturday morning.

After the positive result, which became known early Saturday morning, the affected person was immediately informed and isolated in his hotel. A second test was then immediately performed to confirm the result. This second test has also proved positive and therefore the staff member and all employees with whom he has been in contact remain in isolation.

The local health authorities in Brno will now decide on the duration of the self-isolation. As a precaution, the championship has decided to test all persons who are in secondary contact with the person concerned, and each of these tests has yielded a negative result, Dorna has announced.
