Leganes’ official website added that the first precautionary measure was to cancel Friday’s training session.
The Madrid-based club state that Ortega hasn’t been in contact with any member of the first-team squad or the coaching staff.
As for Ortega himself, he is set to be discharged from hospital already on Friday.
For the time being, no La Liga first-team player or a member of the coaching staff has tested positive for the coronavirus.
Real Madrid, though, were quarantined on Thursday after their basketball player tested positive. Both teams use the same training facilities.
