A piece of key breaking news came out of West Ham United this Friday lunchtime as the club made an announcement regarding Coronavirus on social media.
The statement backed up the earlier development that the Premier League will be postponed until at least Saturday 4 April and revealed that individuals within the team who came into close contact with Mikel Arteta last weekend have now been placed under isolation.
It also confirmed that deep cleans of all club training grounds are taking place and Rush Green is currently closed until further notice.
We will, of course, now miss two matches at home to Wolves and away at Spurs – tickets for both will be available to use for the rescheduled fixtures – as we’re set to return to action against Chelsea at London Stadium on Sunday 5 April.
Fellow fans are seeing the lighter side as they react to the briefing…

West Ham has already taken a number of precautionary measures in regards to its facilities and its Rush Green training ground…… and ordered a couple of new portacabins
