UAE Team Emirates ends voluntary quarantine

With the negative results of the third and final block of testing and the quarantine period now at an end, the Emirati team have decided to return to Europe.
This observation period was necessary to be sure of non-contagion for negative riders and staff, and also to allow the time to show the positive results of the others. These measures were to protect the health of loved ones at home, fellow teammates and the wider cycling community.
The cases that have proved positive in the meantime will remain in the UAE, where they will remain in the best of care in hospital. Their health is good and under control.
