Coronavirus: Players must sign consent for group training

 

Each club must also appoint a ‘Designated Covid-19 Officer’, who cannot be a member of their medical staff.

Premier League players will be required to provide written confirmation that they agree to their club’s new safety measures before they return to group training, Sky Sports News has confirmed.

Clubs are required to conduct an occupational health risk assessment by Friday May 15 and make results available to the Premier League on request.

The updated draft guidance, issued by Premier League director of football Richard Garlick, was dated in advance of a shareholders meeting on Monday.

Garlick’s protocols may yet be updated and must be agreed by all clubs.

Each club must ensure players and members of staff have provided written confirmation that they have received, and agree to be bound by, the terms of a new Covid-19 policy, which includes a framework to support the education and familiarisation of all players and staff.

Each club must also appoint a ‘Designated Covid-19 Officer’, who cannot be a member of their medical staff.

The officer must be a senior employee, unconnected to a club’s medical team, or an external consultant or specialist.
