“Red zone will be the most severely restricted area, including the pitch, the tunnel, technical areas, changing rooms will be limited to 105 people maximum, to include players, coaching staff, match officials and all the essential staff only, and only those who have tested negative for COVID-19 in the past five days can enter this area,” Brady said.
“The amber zone will be restricted to the minimum number of staff required to meet contractual requirements for broadcasting, media and club staff. This area includes all interior areas within the stadium and anyone entering this area will be subject to a temperature check and a health questionnaire. And the green zone is the stadium exterior, e.g. car parking.” She further stated.
The 2019/20 Premier League season is set to resume on 17thJune, 2020 after more than three months away due to the COVID-19 pandemic and safety will be the number one priority.
