As a result of the ongoing concerns posed the by Coronavirus outbreak and following specific medical advice, the Fair Play handshake between players and match officials will not take place at the Club’s matches until further notice...
Whilst the Government guidance does remain unchanged, a decision has been taken due to the way in which the Covid-19 virus can be transmitted through a handshake.
The EFL remains in regular dialogue with the Government regarding the ongoing concerns posed by the coronavirus and is being appraised on a regular basis of developments that could potentially impact Stevenage Football Club and the Competitions we participate in.
At the current time the advice remains unchanged and our game against Crewe Alexandra will continue as normal this weekend with all EFL Clubs being advised to take appropriate prevention measures as per the Government guidance.
In addition to the Government advice the Club have opted to implement additional precautions which include the installation of additional hand sanitizers throughout its sites, the implementation of a staff travel policy, as well as the distribution of guidance to all players, staff and volunteers.
The EFL will continue to provide the Club with updates and advice as it is issued to ensure we have all the relevant up-to date information and we will advise our supporters accordingly.
These matters are subject to constant change and we will update as appropriate.
