Message from our CEO regarding the Coronavirus outbreak and its impact on our staff and business
An update on the impact of Coronavirus on our business operations from Karl Lingham, Hertfordshire FA CEO

UPDATED 22/03/2021 10:30

Dear All,

Firstly, I hope you and your families are all safe, well and keeping positive as we all continue to face the impact of this unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic. 

With the recent announcement of the Government's roadmap out of restrictions, we can all begin looking forward to things returning to normal. In the meantime, it is vital that we all do what we can to prevent the spread of the virus by following all the appropriate Government guidance, to help ensure that this proposed timeline can be safely met.

As we prepare for the return of organised outdoor sports from 29th March, we are pleased to say that all of our staff have now returned from furlough and are working their usual hours. Our Community Football Centre will open to sessions as soon as restrictions allow, with all necessary measures in place to continue to ensure the safety of all taking part.

Our offices will remain closed however, with staff continuing to operate remotely. While we do have robust measures in place to allow our office staff to operate effectively while working remotely, we appreciate your patience and understanding as we continue to adapt to these challenging circumstances.

With the vaccine rollout well underway we can hopefully be more confident that this will be the last time restrictions will need to be imposed, although we have seen throughout this crisis that certainty is hard to come by, and so we remain ready to react quickly as circumstances change.

Kind Regards,
Karl Lingham
