Top-level German football is due to resume on May 16 after two months

German football's plan to return after the coronavirus crisis has suffered a setback after Dynamo Dresden announced their whole squad has been put in self-isolation.

"After an intensive analysis of the situation, the health authority in Dresden ... decided on Saturday that the entire second division squad, including the coaching and support team, must now go into a 14-day quarantine at home", the club said.

"For the 2nd division, where 81 matches are still to be played, two of Dynamo Dresden's matches can not be played at the moment".

Dresden have been scheduled to play Hanover 96 subsequent Sunday of their first recreation again following the stoppage that was brought on by the coronavirus outbreak. "The fact is that we can neither train nor participate in the game in the next 14 days".

That same day, Dynamo Dresden were allowed to begin full-contact training, as the only player who tested positive had been in quarantine since May 3 anyway.

Several clubs, including champions Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund and VfL Wolfsburg, have picked hotels in their cities to cut travel times to training locations and airports for the weekend matches.

WEIJA: Why are you saying that to me, specifically? "I'm saying it to anybody that would ask a nasty question like that".

The club said they took great efforts to follow the DFL's medical plan in recent weeks and the measures taken now were derived from the local health authorities' code of conduct as well as the league's medical plan.

When the action was halted on 13 March, Dresden lay at the foot of the 18 team second division. About 300 people, including players, staff and officials, will be in or around the grounds during match days.

The league must complete nine matchdays to finish the season and the 36 clubs making up the German Football League have said they are committed to ending the campaign by June 30. However, the question of how to respond to positive tests is out of the hands of the league as German law states any response to cases is a matter for the local health authority.

"I expect everyone now to live up to their responsibilities", DFL CEO Christian Seifert mentioned on the weekend. Bundesliga can not continue, because only two games have been affected so far, but it is clear that, if it happens enough, it would no longer be possible to end the season'.

"Only two out of 81 Bundesliga 2 games are affected, currently", he said, reiterating the league's commitment to finish the season.

'And the sports ministers also advocated that quarantine should be announced in the event of positive cases. "It was always clear it could happen", he said.
