Oldham Athletic can confirm that Keith Curle has tested positive for Covid-19.
This means he will miss the fixture tonight at home to Tranmere Rovers and is awaiting further medical advice on his return date as the Head Coach completes his self-isolation.
As experienced last season, the club will ensure its preparation behind-the-scenes for the game continues and the players along with the backroom staff will be assisted by Keith remotely during this period.
Having consulted the EFL we will continue our daily screening protocols and take a number of additional measures to reduce risk in what is still a challenging time for all.
A number of absent players from the weekend are expected to return throughout the course of this week.
Finally, the club would like to wish Keith a quick recovery and look forward to welcoming him back once it is safe for him to do so.
