Claret & Hugh have provided us with a key West Ham Covid-19 update, stating on Monday that no first-team players or staff had been struck down by Coronavirus.
Some of them were self-isolating after contact with Mikel Arteta, but that has now stopped and those people have returned to work.
Rush Green is still closed but set to re-open to the players soon, so that the likes of Tomas Soucek will no longer have to go running in the woods…

It’s certainly good news for those wanting to finish the 2019/2020 Premier League this summer, along with the development that UEFA have pushed Euro 2020 back one year.
There is now maybe some hope of getting the campaign done in the not-too-distant future, although I’m not entirely sure how I feel about that given our position in the table.
Fellow fans on Twitter were in the mood to crack wise as they reacted to the good Hammers news…
Been distancing themselves all season…

All the players are to slow to catch anything and the board wont have anything if they cant make money from it

What’s the explanation for their lethargic displays this season then? 🤷♂️
