4 members of Manchester City women's team test positive for COVID-19
Super League club did not identify the affected players

The FA Women's Super League club did not identify the affected players but said they were self-isolating in accordance with Football Association and U.K. government protocol.
"Everyone at the club wishes our colleagues a speedy recovery ahead of their return to work, training and competition," the club said in a statement.

This past November, Beckie scored in an FA Cup final for Manchester City as the defending champions beat Everton 3-1 after extra time.
The 26-year-old forward, a dual citizen raised in Colorado by her Canadian parents, signed a two-year extension with Man City back in April.
