The initial testing conducted last week was inconclusive, with a second wave of testing confirming the presence of the virus among some players and staff.

Contact has been made with all Super Rugby teams, while each of the teams that the Brumbies have played in recent weeks (Queensland Reds, Melbourne Rebels and Highlanders) are monitoring their staff and players, with no further reported cases to date.
