Greenock Morton V Dundee United – 14th March
SUPPORTERS will be aware of the ongoing situation with COVID-19 and will have concerns over the impact the virus will have. We would like to update fans regarding the upcoming match and additional safety measures that the Club has imposed.
The Club has taken additional safety measures including adding extra washing gels in all public toilets. Coronavirus safety information has also been displayed around the stadium.
While there is every likelihood that feeling under the weather may be cold or flu, it is imperative that we protect the health and wellbeing of all these who attend the game and we cannot take any risks. Anyone feeling unwell may decide to stay at home and follow the game on the various media options.
Safety advice includes:
Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze.
Always wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
Use hand sanitiser gel if soap and water is not available.
Put used tissues in the bin straight away and wash your hands afterwards.
Try to avoid close contact with people who are unwell.
The following symptoms may develop in the 14 days after exposure to someone who has COVID-19 infection:
difficulty in breathing
Generally, these infections can cause more severe symptoms in people with weakened immune systems, older people, and those with long-term conditions like diabetes, cancer and chronic lung disease
How COVID-19 is spread:
From what we know about other coronaviruses, spread of COVID-19 is most likely to happen when there is close contact (within 2 metres or less) with an infected person. It is likely that the risk increases the longer someone has close contact with an infected person.
Respiratory secretions produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes containing the virus are most likely to be the main means of transmission
There are 2 main routes by which people can spread COVID-19:
Infection can be spread to people who are nearby (within 2 metres) or possibly could be inhaled into the lungs.
It is also possible that someone may become infected by touching a surface, object or the hand of an infected person that has been contaminated with respiratory secretions and then touching their own mouth, nose, or eyes (such as touching door knob or shaking hands then touching own face)
There is currently little evidence that people who are without symptoms are infectious to others.
If you are worried about symptoms, please call NHS 111. Do not go directly to your GP or other healthcare environment.
If you become unwell at the game contact a steward who will take you to a room to isolate yourself away from others.
