The North Queensland Toyota Cowboys have cancelled training today after a member of the club’s Apollo Register was deemed to have come in close contact with a confirmed COVID-19 case at the Townsville Markets on Sunday.
The Cowboys Apollo Register member underwent a COVID-19 test yesterday and is currently in isolation awaiting results.
Two other Cowboys Apollo Register members have also undergone testing and are in isolation after travelling to Magnetic Island on Saturday.
None of the three Apollo Register members breached any protocol as the Cowboys were under Level One restrictions at the time.
In accordance with QLD Health guidelines and after consultation with the NRL, the remainder of the Cowboys Apollo register have been sent home to isolate until test results return.
The Cowboys will continue to work closely with Queensland Health, complying with directions, to ensure the health and safety of the local community.
Cowboys CEO Jeff Reibel will be available to media at 1pm this afternoon via Zoom.
