The National League added: “The Leagues policy is always driven by medical advice and will continue to be our highest priority in every circumstance involving a Covid-19 result”.
As a result, following the away match to Stockport County and the home visit from Chesterfield, both clubs have been told in line with League policy: “to raise their Covid Alert level as deemed appropriate.”
The National League advised: “the League fixture involving Weymouth and Wrexham is formally postponed on Saturday 14th November.”
One month prior the club announced a positive Covid-19 result. This caused 4 players and a backroom staff member to isolate. However, the League agreed that the Terras’ league program was still okay to go ahead.
