An Angus rugby club has shut “until further notice” after a senior male player tested positive for Covid-19.
Forfar-based club Strathmore RFC, which runs youth, senior and community rugby squads, issued a club statement on social media on Saturday informing members and the wider Angus community about the situation.
It said: “Unfortunately we have had a positive Covid case within the senior men’s playing squad and therefore the club will be shut until further notice.
“We have been working with track and trace and they will be in contact with anyone requiring to isolate.
“We will close down for at least 48 hours to allow for a full risk assessment to be carried out and the whole club to be deep cleaned.
“Rest assured every effort is being made to keep our Strathie family safe.”
Senior amateur club rugby in Scotland is on pause across the central belt after the First Minister suspended contact sport for over-18s earlier this month.
A number of clubs across Scotland have reported positive Covid-19 cases.
The professional version of the game has been allowed to continue with matches played this weekend.
