Club issue update after government reintroduce Covid-19 restrictions
- Club offer update on reintroduction of Covid-19 restrictions
- Coventry City home match (11 December 2021) largely unaffected
- Most measures to come into effect from 15 December 2021
In light of the recent reintroduction of Covid-19 restrictions by the British government in response to the Omicron variant, we are updating our supporters on what effect these changes will have.
We would firstly like to reassure supporters that the John Smith’s Stadium has been, and will continue to be, as safe an environment as possible with the ongoing pandemic firmly in mind. We have for some time made sanitising stations readily available across the stadium and have also reintroduced mandatory face coverings for all staff.
With the majority of the Government’s returning restrictions - which can be read in full on the Government website by CLICKING HERE - not due to come into effect until Wednesday 15 December 2021, our home match this Saturday 11 December against Coventry City at 1230pm will remain largely unaffected, other than the reintroduction of face coverings.
All supporters aged 11 and over will be required to wear a face covering when located within indoor areas of the John Smith’s Stadium – including on concourses and within hospitality - other than when eating or drinking, or where exempt. Supporters do not have to have their faces covered whilst in their seat, although this is strongly advised.
These considerations aside, Coventry City at home will operate in the same way the rest of the 2021/22 season has done.
Once we have received further clarification from both the Government and EFL on additional restrictions early next week, we will communicate with supporters via all official Club channels. We urge supporters to adhere to the measures required to ensure you remain eligible to attend fixtures for the remainder of the 2021/22 season. These factors are mandatory for all visitors to the John Smith’s Stadium unless exempt from the Government legislation.
As ever, we remain grateful for your ongoing patience and support.
