The eagerly-awaited fifth Test between England and India will go ahead as scheduled after the England and Wales Cricket Board announced there have been no further positive COVID-19 tests in the visitors' camp.
India head coach Ravi Shastri tested positive during the previous match at the Oval, alongside bowling coach Bharat Arun and fielding coach R Sridhar, with all three remaining in isolation while the squad moved on to Old Trafford.
All the tourists' players tested negative on the final day of the fourth Test, but reports from India on the eve of the final match on Thursday said that another member of staff had now contracted the virus.
The team's afternoon net session was then scrapped pending further developments.
However, the ECB confirmed later on Thursday that further PCR tests carried out on India's players and staff had all come back negative, allowing the final Test to go ahead as planned on Friday
India lead the series 2-1 but positive tests among the players would not just affect the end of a gripping series.
Many of the India players also star in the Indian Premier League which is due to resume on September 19 in the United Arab Emirates after being cut short by the virus in May.
England had earlier completed their preparations on Thursday, with vice-captain Jos Buttler saying: "We're fully expecting the game to go ahead and we're preparing to play tomorrow. Fingers crossed the game will go ahead.
"We don't know too much to be honest. It would be naive to speculate too much on stuff I don't know about. Things are all fine in our camp."
