EPL Football SPORTS GIST MAN UNITED TO CONDUCT CORONAVIRUS ROUTINE CHECKS ON MATCH DAYS By Admin Posted on 2 weeks ago 1 min read 0 0 Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Share on Pinterest Share on Linkedin Farouq Oduola A. Manchester United will conduct coronavirus spot checks on matchdays beginning with their match against Newcastle United on Saturday. Fans aged 18 and up should be able to show that they have been double-jabbed or have had a negative lateral flow or PCR test within 48 hours of the game. It is not currently a requirement to enter Old Trafford, but the club expects it to become so in the future as a result of Premier League and UK government recommendations. According to measures being debated by the government, fans attending sporting events with attendances of 20,000 or more may be compelled to provide proof of a full Covid-19 vaccination beginning at the end of this month, and mandatory coronavirus screenings will begin on October 1. Over the following two weeks, the trials will be pushed out among top-flight clubs. The club claims that it is ramping up these health standards to safeguard the safety of fans attending games and to avoid any capacity limits.
