Full statement (emphasis added):

​Today’s A International fixture between Scotland A and England A at Mattioli Woods Welford Road has been called off following the confirmation that three members of the Scotland camp have tested positive for COVID-19.

The entire squad and management team were PCR tested early on Thursday morning and, with no positive results returned from the playing group, the team travelled to Leicester on Friday afternoon.

However, following a further round of PCR testing on Saturday morning, Scottish Rugby can confirm that three positive tests for COVID-19 have been returned.

The three members of the camp that tested positive have started self-isolation as per Scottish Government guidelines and the Scottish Rugby medical team have since begun internal contact tracing to determine those that are close contacts, and as such will also have to self-isolate as per Scottish Government guidelines. Further updates will be issued in due course.

The match, which was due to be played today at Mattioli Woods Welford Road, Leicester, will not be rearranged. Ticket holders will receive an automated refund in the coming days.

Scottish Rugby continues to operate an extensive health and safety coronavirus mitigation plan and follow all respective health guidance aligned through Scottish Rugby’s Threat Management Group.
