Coronavirus (COVID-19): Latest Information & Advice

Thursday 12 March 2020 19:00

Fulham Football Club is monitoring the changing situation regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19) and is regularly keeping abreast of advice and following Public Health England and NHS guidelines.

Based on current guidelines, and following today’s government meeting and declaration of the UK moving to the ‘delay’ phase, fixtures are going ahead as planned and any change in this situation will be communicated to supporters.

In line with instructions dealing with the outbreak of Coronavirus, the Club encourages supporters to be familiar with Public Health England and NHS guidance, paying particular attention if you have recently travelled to the UK from countries with a higher risk of Coronavirus. 

In addition, as announced today, we’d encourage vulnerable people at a higher risk to adhere to the advice and those showing flu-like symptoms to follow the self-isolation procedure as instructed.

Public Health England Guidance is updated daily.

The Club has adopted its own measures to mitigate the risk of contracting and spreading the virus.

These measures include:

- encouraging good hand hygiene and stopping handshakes 

- limiting staff and supporter interaction with players

- postponing player appearances

- requesting players refrain from signing autographs and posing for selfies

We are aware that some of these measures may inconvenience supporters and hope they understand our reasons for implementing these.

The health and safety of supporters, visitors, players and staff is a priority and we ask those visiting Craven Cottage to take care of their hygiene and wash hands regularly, in keeping with guidelines issued. Hand sanitisers no greater than 100ml in size are permitted inside the ground should supporters wish to bring them.

Other measures introduced include the implementation of many of the club’s retail, ticketing and concessionary outlets being cashless.
