A popular multi-purpose sports centre has been closed to the public after a user of the facilities was diagnosed with coronavirus.
Scotstoun Sports Campus, home to Glasgow Warriors and venue for Saturday’s postponed Six Nations Women’s match between Scotland and France, has been closed temporarily as appropriate steps are taken.
Glasgow Life, who run the venue, confirmed the news on social media.
The statement said: “Someone who uses Scotstoun Stadium has been identified as having Coronavirus.
“We have temporarily closed Scotstoun Sports Campus and will take appropriate measures in the interests of everyone who uses the venue. Other Glasgow Club venues open as planned.”
The Scotland vs France women’s match was called off after one of the players tested positive for the virus.
It is understood the decision over the Scotstoun Sports Campus was taken after the player contracted Covid-19.
The player, who has not been named, is described as “doing well” by Dr James Robson, the chief medical officer of Scottish Rugby, and has been checked into a healthcare facility.
Seven members of staff and players have self-isolated after taking medical advice.
Scotland has so far seen 11 confirmed cases of the illness, according to the Scottish Government, with preparations continuing for a larger outbreak.
