“Following a request from the media, Newcastle United can confirm that Saint-Maximin did not contravene any UK quarantine rules during a visit to a supermarket in Newcastle on Thursday evening,” the club said in a statement.
“The club considers this matter closed and will not be issuing further comment.”
Four Premier League matches have been postponed and more than 50 games in the lower divisions of the Football League called off. Newcastle boss Steve Bruce said it was “morally wrong” for English soccer to continue as cases continue to rise.
Saint-Maximin, who was among the Newcastle players to have contracted the virus, will miss Saturday’s FA Cup game at Arsenal.
