Club Update on COVID-19

11th March 2020

The Club is closely monitoring the advice from the UK and Scottish Governments and Health Authorities in relation to the Corona Virus (COVID – 19). 

Supporters will have noticed informational posters on hand-washing and sanitisation at Tynecastle Park - hand washing is seen as a key part of stopping the spread of infection and it is all of our responsibility to ensure that we do this.

Hand sanitisers will also be added to each end of the concourse and toilets will continue to be stocked with sufficient supplies of soap and towels. For the most up to date guidance on best practice when washing your hands, please CLICK HERE.

Currently, forthcoming fixtures are not affected, but it is crucial that if any supporter has any Upper Respiratory Tract symptoms (such as a cough, breathlessness, sore throat etc), they must not attend any match until they have had their symptoms properly medically assessed.

The Club is also taking the following measures with immediate effect for the health and well being of our players and fans:

- There will be no player appearances, hand shaking or shirt signings with the team;
- We are suspending our Children’s Mascot Programme for the next month as the advice is that only the teams and officials should be on the pitch (those who have bookings in place will be contacted directly by the Club;
- There will be no handshakes between teams or officials.
- The Club will continue to take guidance from the Scottish FA and SPFL joint task force, the UK and Scottish Governments and Health Authorities and will update supporters with any further developments.
