The Glenavy side said a visitor to the club’s bar area at the weekend tested positive for Covid-19

Crewe United have closed their facilities for a deep clean after a visitor to the club’s bar tested positive for Covid-19.

The Mid Ulster League outfit posted a statement on their social media channels to offer guidance to anyone who may have visited the club at the weekend.

“Since the re-opening of the club post-lockdown, we have taken extensive steps to protect all our members and those visiting our club,” Crewe said in a statement.

“At no point has any of our members tested positive for Covid-19 and this remains the case.

“However, we have been made aware that a person who was visiting within the bar area of the club last weekend has tested positive for Covid-19. At the time of his visit to the club, we understand he had no symptoms of the virus.

“As a result, we have instructed a professional deep clean of the entire building at the club. The club has been closed with immediate effect and will remain so until this has been completed.”

Crewe advised that anyone who may have been at the club over the weekend follow the following guidance:

  • Please re-familiarise yourself with the symptoms of the virus and be vigilant in this regard;
  • If you do believe you may have symptoms, please book in for a Covid-19 test;
  • If you have symptoms, please self isolate until such times your test is completed.

The club also said it has postponed all senior team training and matches.
