Keeping you updated on the impact of Coronavirus on Hertfordshire football

UPDATED 17/12/2021 13:00

The FA has updated its COVID-19 guidance to reflect the Government’s move to Plan B of its COVID Autumn/Winter Plan, in response to the risks of the Omicron variant.

Please note that the changes introduced in Plan B have no material impact on the playing of grassroots football at this time and we want to thank you in advance for playing a vital role in helping our great game to stay safe. By observing Government guidance and the football-specific protocols, let’s work together to ensure we can all continue to enjoy football while keeping as safe as possible.

The FA continue to work closely with Government to monitor the ongoing impact of COVID-19 and will update guidance documents with any further changes, as and when necessary.
