The Spanish giants have said they will not have to lay off any of their staff or workers while many other teams in LaLiga have seen players join their families back home or undertake self-isolation. The club have defiantly said they will not observe what in Spain is known as ERTE or temporary suspension of labour, during the break in LaLiga and European competition.

The record European club competition champions have, however, stated they will not go against any measures put in place by the government regarding self-isolation and quarantine. The players are currently on lock-down after a player on the basketball team tested positive for the virus last month.

According to reports, staff are currently working from homeĀ and Zinedine Zidane is working on a plan that will take every potential scenario into account. There is still no certainty as to when they can return to their training ground as a team.
