Bournemouth on Friday became the latest Premier League side to undergo self-isolation after confirming that five first-team members of staff have reported coronavirus symptoms.

"Goalkeeper Artur Boruc, along with four first-team members of staff, are self-isolating in line with Government and Public Health guidelines," the club said in a statement.

"This is a precautionary measure as, at this stage, none have tested positive for coronavirus.

"The club continues to monitor the situation closely and to take suitable measures to ensure the well being of its employees and supporters."

This comes shortly after news that Evertonconfirmed their first-team squad and staff will undergo a period of self-isolation after a first-team player reported symptoms of coronavirus.

Manchester City, Chelsea, Arsenal and Leicester City have all reported either players or the entire club has taken similar precautions with reports suggesting Watford may follow suit.
