The members of the Valais club of the Swiss League will be in solitary confinement until Friday, in the best case scenario.
The quarantine period for players and coaches of HC Sierre has been extended until Friday, in the best case, by the doctor of the Canton of Valais.
As a reminder, members of the Ville du Soleil club were placed in preventive isolation on Wednesday when HC Friborg-Gottéron communicated that four of its players had tested positive for Covid-19.
Last Sunday, in Zug where it was measured against the EVZ Academy (1-4), the central Valais team had aligned goalkeeper Connor Hughes, sold by Friborg-Gottéron through a B license. ” In the locker room and the bus, everyone wore a mask, explains Christophe Fellay, sports director of the HCS.

Initially scheduled for Wednesday, the tests of the Sierro hockey players were postponed to Thursday in order to respect the period of five days necessary to be able to detect a possible contamination.
The results should be known on Friday afternoon. Until then, there will be no training.
Graben’s next match is scheduled for Saturday in Olten (5.45 p.m.). “At this stage, I can just say that it is not certain that this part will take place”, adds Christophe Fellay.
