The Newcastle Eagles, Eagles Community Foundation and Eagles Community Arena have been keeping up to date with latest government advice regarding coronavirus.

Our primary concern is the safety and wellbeing of all our fans, participants, guests, visitors and staff.

Club, foundation and arena activities will continue to run as normal, and we will keep participants and other stakeholders informed should any changes come into effect.

Below is the advice for public places from Public Health England, which features information you may find useful:

How serious is coronavirus?

  • It can cause flu-like symptoms, including fever, cough & difficulty breathing
  • The infection is not serious for most people, including children
  • There is currently no vaccine
  • Most people get better with enough rest, water to drink and medicine for pain

How can you stop coronavirus spreading?

  • If you need to cough or sneeze, catch it with a tissue, bin it and kill it by washing your hands with soap and water
  • Regularly wash your hands with soap and water or hand sanitiser
  • Try not to touch your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands
  • Do not share items that come into contact with your mouth such as cups and bottles

What should you do if you feel unwell and think you might have been exposed to coronavirus?

  • Keep away from others and stay at home to stop the infection spreading.
  • Avoid public transport if you think you have symptoms of coronavirus.
  • If you or your child become unwell with any of the symptoms whilst taking part in an Eagles Community Foundation led coaching session or whilst in the ECA, and you have visited an infected region within the past 14-days, we advise that you ask a someone to collect you and inform a member of Eagles staff straight away.

How likely are you to catch the virus?

  • You can only catch it if you have been close to a person who has the virus
  • The chance of being in contact with the virus is currently low in the UK
  • If you have travelled to areas where many people are infected, your chance of catching the virus is higher, please see the latest affected areas.
  • Staff, students and pupils who have returned from any category one country should self-isolate, and NOT attend any of our Eagles Community Foundation led coaching sessions or Eagles Community Arena for 14 days

We would recommend participants and parents / guardians visit NHS.UK for the latest advice on coronavirus. If you have any concerns, or have symptoms, you should call NHS 111 for further advice.
