Advice for fans attending England v Wales matches
We understand that with coronavirus (COVID-19) high in the news agenda, fans attending England v Wales may be concerned.
For those attending England against Wales at Twickenham Stadium our overriding consideration when making decisions on whether major sporting events and other public gatherings should go ahead is the health of the people in England and those visiting from elsewhere.
The Rugby Football Union is following advice from government and Public Health England and currently there is no recommendation for the cancellation or postponement of events in the United Kingdom. We will continue to monitor the situation and update information based on the latest government advice.
The best place to read the latest updates on this evolving issue is on the government website, accessed here.
There will be a wide range of measures to protect public health being implemented at Twickenham Stadium. These include:
- Hand sanitiser points at the stadium
- Personal hygiene information posters
- Medical staff available within the stadium grounds to assist spectators with medical emergencies
- Event day staff have been provided with guidance on coronavirus (COVID-19), the symptoms, preventative control and mitigation and overseas travel
These are in addition to our normal match day medical provision for spectators, players and match officials. We can all play our part in helping to protect ourselves and others;
- Maintain good hand hygiene, avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth
- Always carry tissues with you, cover your nose and mouth when coughing or sneezing and use them to catch your cough or sneeze
- Dispose of tissues in the nearest bin, and to kill the germs, wash your hands with soap and water, or use a sanitiser gel
You should not attend the match if you have been advised to self-isolate by the NHS 111 online or phone coronavirus service or a medical professional.
Anyone who thinks they may have contracted the virus or been exposed to it should not attend the match and should follow the advice at https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/
