IPL will no longer need to operate out of a biosecure bubble, which had been mandatory for the three years since the pandemic.
However, the IPL has said it wants to be careful and players testing positive will not be allowed to participate in a match or in training until they return consecutive negative tests, the earliest of which can be taken on day five of recovery.
According to the IPL's medical guidelines, distributed to franchises recently, positive cases must be isolated for a maximum of seven days.
Positive cases will not be allowed to participate in any match or activity/event during the isolation period. From day five of recovery, they can undergo an RT-PCR test, provided they are asymptomatic without medication for 24 hours.
