It’s the smallest of silver linings for West Coast after their heart-breaking elimination final exit at the hands of Collingwood at Optus Stadium tonight.
After thinking they would have to serve 14 days of home quarantine, the Eagles have since been informed by the WA Government’s chief health officer Andy Robertson that it will only need to be seven days.
If any of West Coast or Collingwood’s playing group or staff test positive to coronavirus, the seven-day period will be doubled to 14.
But provided all tests go to plan, the players and staff will emerge from their final quarantine period of the year next weekend.
“We can’t even have a Mad Monday either,” a joking Adam Simpson told Channel 7 post-match.
“We have to quarantine with our families, not that it’s a bad thing.”
The Magpies fly back to Queensland tomorrow morning ahead of their clash against Geelong next Saturday night.
More to come.
