June 29 (Reuters) - The Premier League said on Monday that there was one positive result from the latest round of COVID-19 tests of players and staff conducted last week, taking the total number of cases to 19 since testing began last month.

The English top flight restarted its season earlier this month after a 100-day hiatus due to the pandemic while the FA Cup quarter-final ties, which featured eight Premier League teams, were played over the weekend.

"The Premier League can today confirm that between Monday 22 June and Sunday 28 June, 2,250 players and club staff were tested for COVID-19. Of these, one person has tested positive," the league said in a statement.
