EFL Update On Coronavirus

6 March 2020

As a result of the ongoing concerns posed by the Coronavirus outbreak and following specific medical advice, the Fair Play handshake between players and match officials will not take place at Preston North End’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 PNE and the competitions we participate in.

At the current time the advice remains unchanged and our game against Queens Park Rangers will continue as normal this weekend with all EFL Clubs being advised to take appropriate prevention measures as per the Government guidance.

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.
