A Club Hurler in Kilkenny tested positive.  His teammates will have to isolate for 2 weeks.

Surely that's not true? Didn't the gaa identify training and matches as casual contact therefore no need to self isolate

It's true, that's the problem with it being Amatuer. Those players will probaly miss 2 weeks wages from work

The Inter County season starting in October when the flu season starts. It could be carnage then.

Not strictly true. They isolate until contact tracing and tests are done so could be less than 2 weeks. Training is regarded as close contact though.

Id actually say a good idea would be use squad numbers and each player look after their own jersey for the season

I think the problems with public attendance at these games is shown by the Danish cup final where a modest crowd was admitted, but the game had to be stopped because some of the fans insisted on squeezing in together. Some people are thick and several thick people together is a bad combination.
