The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Monday shut its offices in Lahore after a staff member tested positive for the novel coronavirus. 

While the identity of the member has not been disclosed yet, an official confirmed that the person was not in Karachi during the Pakistan Super League's (PSL) sixth edition that recently had to be postponed midway. 

According to sources, the PCB has asked its employees to work from home for the next three days as a precautionary measure.

The Board has also issued Covid-19 SOPs for staff members and instructed them to strictly follow them.

Meanwhile, all activities planned for today in the ongoing National High Performance Centre (NHPC) camp for elite cricketers have also been dismissed.

The decision to resume the activities at camp will be made later.

The PCB had started a month-long camp at NHPC on Tuesday for those cricketers who were either not participating in the PSL or knocking at the doors of international cricket or had recently lost their places in the national side.
