The AFL has revealed that a club employee member in attendance at Marvel Stadium on Wednesday night's AFL Draft has tested positive for Covid-19.

In an official press release from AFL House, it was confirmed that the anonymous staff member had been involved in the selection process across Wednesday night's first-round.

The infected party then made their way from Docklands to an official Draft event at Richmond's London Tavern.

While they were said to have only appeared at the venue that was playing host to numerous draftees for a brief period of time, each and every person that attended the Lennox Street establishment has been asked to remain vigilant to the virus' symptoms.

The league also expressed that those who shared the recruiting table with their fellow employee have since returned negative tests.

Although the remainder of the 2021 AFL Draft will continue at Marvel Stadium on Thursday night, those that wish to attend will be required to provide a negative on-site test and wear a mask across the course of the night.

Coverage of the annual event is set to recommence at 6:30pm AEST.
