Emirates Riverside statement on Coronavirus

We appreciate that with regular news stories and updates about covid-19 coronavirus, there are many questions surrounding coronavirus and how this will impact those visiting Emirates Riverside.

We are monitoring the coronavirus situation carefully and regularly, with the health and safety of our visitors, staff and players as our priority.

We are following Public Health England and NHS guidelines, which means that Emirates Riverside is currently open for business as usual. However, in line with those guidelines we have increased our cleaning routines across all of our facilities and strengthened hygiene and sanitisation in public areas.

Durham Cricket Chief Executive Tim Bostock said: “We are taking all measures at Emirates Riverside to make sure the venue will continue to operate as normal. The safety and wellbeing of everyone within the venue is our main priority and we will continue to stay up to date with the current situation.”

We ask visitors to the stadium to ensure they wash their hands in any of the public toilets within our facilities upon arrival.

If you have recently travelled to the UK from countries with a higher risk of coronavirus you should seek medical advice. If you have been to one of these places in the last 14 days, find out what to do using the NHS 111 online coronavirus service.

If you are experiencing symptoms (which include a cough, a high temperature or shortness of breath) or have been to any high-risk areas, the Government advice is to call NHS 111, stay indoors and avoid contact with other people immediately.

Anyone with flu symptoms should avoid the risk of spreading their infection by staying at home and recovering.

Any further updates will be published on the Durham Cricket website and social media pages when we feel it necessary.
