Jose Maria Gimenez has tested positive for COVID-19, after taking a PCR test on Monday.
He’ll have to stay at home to quarantine and will miss this weekend’s game against Granada, the first of the season for Atletico Madrid.
“The Uruguayan is isolating at home, following the health authorities’ guidelines,” a club statement read.
“Following the result, the LaLiga protocol has been activated and our players will complete the next training session individually.”
This is the latest case at Atletico Madrid after the positives of Renan Lodi, Angel Correa, Sime Vrsaljko, Diego Costa, Santiago Arias and the coach Diego Simeone.
