“The person is completely asymptomatic and was promptly isolated according to federal and ministerial directives,” the club said in a statement, without giving the person’s identity or area of work.
Parma said that, under the Italian government’s health guidelines, the players would be isolated at the club’s training ground but would be able to continue normal activities under constant monitoring.
It wasn't specified in the statement whether this included matches, but several Italian media said Parma would be able to fulfil their fixture at home to Bologna on Sunday provided all players tested negative again on the day.
