Premier League: New Covid-19 Code of Conduct issued after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s admission

Premier League: New Covid-19 Code of Conduct issued after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s admission- A new “code of conduct” has been issued to the Premier League stars. This comes after there have been fears of rising Covid-19 cases again. While the Premier League has urged all the players and officials to get vaccinated, some players are still unsure about getting vaccinated.

Deputy chief medical officer Jonathan Van Tam has spoken to all the 20 captains and Professional Footballers’ Association representatives on a conference call. Van Tam has always been in support of the vaccines, calling them ‘incredibly safe’ but also maintained that the Premier League cannot force the players to get vaccinated.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson lifted Covid-19 restrictions in England on July 19. Britain’s Covid-19 cases increased by 5% over the past week, with the country reporting 25,161 new cases of Covid-19 on Monday.

Supporters must also adhere to a new code of conduct, the league said, which includes wearing masks indoors, avoiding close contact with people they do not know, and following one-way signage around stadiums.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s admission:

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed that he had been holding meetings with his players and medical staff to address concerns within his squad.

While the players have been following all the Covid-19 protocols, they have still been reminded to be “careful and responsible” even though most of the protocols have been lifted.

New Covid cases:

The Premier League announced on Monday there were 11 new Covid cases. This is concerning especially because the cases were down to zero last season. Furthermore, the clubs now have full stadium capacities to contend with.

PFA representatives and captains then communicated back to their teammates with notices about the value of sticking to the “red zone” guidelines and twice-weekly testing which is now done with parallel flow tests with positives being followed up with a PCR test.
