Canberra United is holding out for Monday's updated ACT Health advice, which would force the postponement of their next W-League fixture if the team was ordered to quarantine for two weeks.
United staff and players have been in self-isolation since returning from Brisbane on Friday, having battled out a 1-all draw with the Roar the night prior.
ACT Health issued a new public health direction in response to the discovery of the UK-variant of coronavirus in the Queensland city, which entered a three-day lockdown to contain the spread.
Under the advice, anyone in Canberra who had been in greater Brisbane on or since January 2 must enter a fortnight's isolation and get tested if they developed symptoms.
ACT Health will reassess the situation near the end of Brisbane's lockdown, with United eagerly waiting to know if they'll be freed from isolation after just three days.
A decision on Sunday's fixture between United and the Newcastle Jets at McDonald Jones Stadium would be made pending on the review.
In good news, Queensland recorded no new cases of coronavirus in Brisbane's first two days of lockdown.
United has given its players an exercise program to undertake during isolation, but they're limited in what they can do without a football field.
Grace Maher, who was isolating at home with teammates Michelle Heyman and Demi Koulizakis, was lucky enough to already have gym equipment in her family's garage to work with.
She spoke of the team's ordeal to organise their quarantine arrangements from Brisbane Airport, saying it was stressful but United was ready for it.
"When we found out, we got to the airport early just in case. It filled up pretty quick, so we all had to sit down at one of the waiting bays and fill out forms that declared our return from Brisbane," Maher said.
"It was very stressful because it was only 3pm when the forms came out and we boarded at 3.10pm.
"I was lucky enough to get onto my family and they said it was fine, but some families are in situations where parents are nurses. Loz's [Lauren Keir] sister is pregnant.
"Everything had to be arranged and I can only imagine that added stress for the staff.
"Vicki [Linton] was really good. She said, 'look, we have to be grateful. We're healthy right now and will be fine. We all managed to find accommodation and we're all safe. We just have to do what we have to do'.
"We're ready for it but it's been quite a shock. That's the new world."
Maher was confident United could overcome the setback of a fortnight's quarantine if the team was required to do so.
United had been looking forward to a 10-day turnaround after playing three matches in close proximity, albeit under different circumstances.
"We're still holding out hope we'll be let out," Maher said.
