Juventus say that they have activated “all the isolation procedures required by law” for those who may have come in contact with Rugani. It was reported by Reuters that the entire Juventus squad will spend two weeks in quarantine.
“You will have read the news and that’s why I want to reassure all those who are worrying about me, I’m fine,” Rugani wrote on social media.
“I urge everyone to respect the rules, because this virus makes no distinctions! Let’s do it for ourselves, for our loved ones and for those around us.”
The team are due to face Lyon in the Champions League next Tuesday in a game which is heavily expected to be postponed by UEFA.
