It's not just professional rugby league players in Australia who are dealing with COVID-19 at the moment.
On the other side of the world, the Hull Kingston Rovers, whose side features Culburra Beach's Adam Quinlan and Gerringong's Korbin Sims, have experienced one of their most unique seasons to date because of the worldwide pandemic.
The South Coast pair's Rovers side is currently in the midst of an enforced four-week break - with their last game coming on June 25, when they defeated Wigan 18-8.
This was because 11 of their playing squad, including Quinlan, contracted the virus - throwing the season into disarray, as numerous games had to be postponed.
"Just after the Wigan game, we were going through our regular testing protocols and one of the guys' results came back positive," Quinlan said.
"Within the next four days, close to half the squad tested positive - it just spread so quickly.
"It was a bit of a nightmare there for a couple of days, as we all had to isolate, to try and stop the spread, not to mention games getting changed on a daily basis.
"Thankfully, I only felt sick for about four days, which is much less than some of my teammates.
"We've all recovered now and are ripping back into training."
While the 28-year-old's side is back into full training now, he admits it took a while to get back up to speed.
"At first, after going through the club's ease back into training protocol, I found I became a lot breathless quicker than normal, which took some getting used to," he said.
"Thankfully that's all past now and we are back into full training, which is a credit to the club and coaching staff, who have been extremely supportive through this whole process by putting everyone's well-being first."
When the games do resume, currently slated against Catalans on July 24, the Culburra Dolphins junior hopes to return to form in one of his 'craziest' seasons to date.
"Right from the start, this season has been a little different to my four previous ones at the club," the former St George Illawarra Dragon, who is tested numerous times per week for COVID-19, said.
"The pre-season started a fair bit later this year because of the COVID interruption last season, not to mention different rules we had to follow, such as smaller training groups, wearing masks at certain times and less wrestle and contact work.
"Then once the season kicked off, I started slow, lacked confidence and generally found it hard to get back in the swing of things.
"I did everything I could to recapture my form from previous seasons including speaking to people both inside and outside the club about mindset - because I physically felt good.
"That really helped and I started to see on-field improvements, just before we forced into this big break."
With just eight weeks until the English Super League finals kick-off and 12 games to play, the Rovers are in for a frantic end to the season - especially as their next match will be the first in front of full capacity in close to one year.
"When we get back on the field, my main goal is to build on the form I had before the break," the fullback said.
"Firstly because, as we currently sit in sixth, I want to help the side go as far as they can in the finals - we know we have the team that can make some noise at the back end of the year.
"Secondly, with me being off contract and the club recently signing Lachlan Coote, I'm trying to prove to other clubs my worth - which I hope will be sorted in the coming weeks.
"It's going to be a really busy couple of weeks but I just can't wait to get back out there and play."
Quinlan and Sims are just two of the Group Seven talents currently plying their trade in England with Shellharbour's Jai Field currently working his way back from injury for the Wigan Warriors.
