Main draw action has yet to start at the Palermo Open, but already there has been a positive Covid-19 test.


Here is the official statement from the WTA Tour.

“A player has tested positive for COVID-19 at the 31st Palermo Ladies Open and has subsequently withdrawn from the tournament. The player is asymptomatic.

Following this information, the WTA, in coordination with the Tournament Infection Control Officer and along with its medical advisors and infectious disease specialist from the Mayo Clinic, immediately put its COVID-19 response plan into action. Any individual who tests positive will remain in isolation until cleared by a physician per the established protocols, and will receive proper medical treatment. In addition, all those who may have been in close contact with the individual are undergoing testing per WTA protocols.”


The tournament will continue as planned, with several qualifying matches already held in Palermo on Saturday.
