Premier League set to drop all Covid measures by end of Feb

February 11 – The English Premier League hopes to phase out all Covid-19 emergency measures by the end of this month.

More than 20 games were called off in December and January because of coronavirus outbreaks at several clubs. A record 103 Premier League players and staff tested positive from December 20-26 but cases have since dropped.

There have been strict rules at stadiums and training grounds since the return to action following the initial UK lockdown.

“While the requirement to ensure social distancing indoors is maintained, restrictions such as wearing face coverings in indoor areas and limiting treatment time will be removed,” the Premier League said.

“The Premier League’s Covid-19 Emergency Measures remain under regular review, with the aim of them expiring at the end of this month.”
