Club Statement: Preventing COVID-19 at The Cloudfm County Ground


Essex Cricket are open for business as usual, with all events taking place as scheduled. In line with advice from NHS England and UK Government, the Club are monitoring information about the coronavirus through the latest official updates.

The Club are promoting the message from NHS England regarding the importance of hand hygiene and thorough cleaning of surfaces, to protect staff and guests. Facilities are provided for all at The Cloudfm County Ground to ensure these guidelines are followed.

We ask visitors to The Cloudfm County Ground to ensure they wash their hands in any of the public toilets within our facilities upon arrival and at regular intervals during your visit.

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.

The wellbeing of staff and guests of Essex Cricket is the highest priority and we will continue to provide updates as more information becomes available.
