Canberra United players and staff have been released from their post-Brisbane quarantine, and will return to training on Tuesday ahead of Sunday's clash with the Newcastle Jets.
The Queensland government announced an end to three days of COVID-19 induced lockdown in Brisbane on Monday, prompting ACT Health to relax the rules around people who had been in that city as recently as January 2.
That included the Canberra United squad, who drew 1-1 with the Roar in Brisbane last Thursday night.
The following day a case of COVID-19 was discovered in Brisbane, which led the government to declaring a three-day lockdown in a bid to prevent an outbreak.
Since returning from Brisbane on Friday afternoon, players and staff had been in lockdown in Canberra, eagerly awaiting updated health advice.
Had the Queensland government extended its lockdown, Sunday's clash with the Newcastle Jets would've been plunged into serious jeopardy.
As it stands, United would enjoy a 10-day break between fixtures after playing three times in nine days in a frantic start to the season which has yielded seven points.
Young gun Grace Maher scored a late equaliser against the Roar last week to maintain Canberra's unbeaten start to the summer.
"We got the schedule pretty early and given how well Canberra has done with COVID cases we knew we were going to have a lot of games pumped out," Maher said.
"You look first and foremost at results; seven points in three games and one of those being in the last game away in Brisbane has been phenomenal.
"The W-League is a bit of a sprint, so you have to start well. We're all happy with where we're sitting at the moment. We rode our luck in patches, some super goals, especially in the last 15 minutes of the games, got us all those points.
"That's no coincidence when it's three times in a row that's down to fitness and belief, the work we've put in working up to those games.
"For the rest of the season, it's going to hold us in good stead because we're not afraid to be down a goal and we know how to play out 90 minutes. Teams are going to be aware of that now."
