UPDATE ON DIAMONDS DEFENDER JO WESTON
Australian Diamond Jo Weston will travel with the team to Manchester tomorrow after testing negative to COVID-19.
Netball Australia’s Chief Medical Officer Dr Susan White said after discussions with the testing laboratory and other experts, it is believed Weston’s PCR tests during the first days of the Diamonds camp detected the last days of an asymptomatic infection and her most recent negative test indicates that she is no longer infectious.
Weston tested negative on rapid antigen tests leading into the training camp in Perth and has been testing daily under the Diamonds’ health and safety protocols.
“Jo’s initial PCR results showed C/T values consistent with low levels of the virus, indicating either the very start or very end of an infection,” Dr White said.
“We took a cautious approach and isolated Jo and performed daily testing. This showed the PCR C/T values change to the point that the virus was undetectable, which indicates that this was the end rather than the start of her COVID-19 infection.”
The Diamonds will travel to Manchester tomorrow in preparation for the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games.
