Hull City Ladies COVID-19 Statement – #StayHomeSaveLives

Hull City Ladies wants all supporters, players, coaches, staff, key partners, sponsors, and volunteers to stay safe in these difficult and testing times.

We want to say thank you for all your continued support and want to show everyone that we’re committed to the safety and health of all our club personnel.

All staff are working from home and still producing excellent work and are keeping in touch with each other via video calling on Microsoft Teams.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson has used a national TV address to set out strict new measures aimed at protecting people from the coronavirus outbreak.

Boris Johnson said: “It’s vital to slow the spread of the disease because that is the way we reduce the number of people needing hospital treatment at any one time, so we can protect the NHS’s ability to cope – and save more lives. That’s why we have been asking people to stay at home during this pandemic. That is why people will only be allowed to leave their home for the following very limited purposes.

  • Shopping for basic necessities, as infrequently as possible
  • One form of exercise a day – for example, a run, walk, or cycle – alone or with members of your household;
  • Any medical need, to provide care or to help a vulnerable person; and
  • Travelling to and from work, but only where this is absolutely necessary and cannot be done from home.

We advise people to Stay Home, Protect The NHS & Save Lives

  • Only go outside for food, health reasons or work (where this absolutely cannot be done from home)
  • Stay 2 metres (6ft) away from other people
  • Wash your hands as soon as you get home

Hull City Ladies would like to place on record their thanks and respect to all the medical, support staff, officials and key workers who are working tirelessly around the clock at the moment in difficult and testing circumstances. We have come to expect that NHS staff will go above and beyond to do the right things by their patients, but that doesn’t make us any less proud and the NHS staff who are working endlessly during the coronavirus pandemic in these uncertain times we are immensely grateful.
