A Supporter's Guide to Enjoying Football at The Halcyon Wealth Longmead Stadium

Halcyon Wealth Longmead Stadium, May 2020

Covid-19 Recovery


Following government guidance, we have lifted social distancing rules and other Covid restrictions in England. The safety of all supporters, volunteers and staff remains our top priority and we'll continue to provide hand sanitiser and maintain our high standards of cleanliness both in outside areas and the Longmead Lounge, Angels Marquee, Boardroom, Terrace Bar, The 1948 Lounge, and all toilets.  The wearing of masks is no longer mandatory but of course supporters are still welcome to wear these if they prefer. Whilst social distancing rules have been lifted we would ask everyone to observe polite social distancing (1m+) as far as possible.  Remember that some spectators will remain somewhat cautious about attending matches and we want all supporters to feel as safe as possible so that they can enjoy the match. 

Always follow directional signage around the ground and if you are uncertain about anything please ask one of our friendly stewards or security staff; they are there to help you enjoy your matchday experience.  

The existing ground regulations still apply.  Please click or tap here to familiarise yourself with these              

Those planning to attend matches should self-assess for any symptoms of COVID-19 before setting out to the ground - these are: -

  1. ·A high temperature (above 37.8C)
  2. ·A new, continuous cough
  3. ·A loss of, or change to, sense of smell or taste
  4.  A sore throat

If you showing any of these symptoms you should not travel to the match. 


Fully vaccinated adults will no longer have to self-isolate for 10 days if they're told they have been in close contact with a person who has Covid. 

This rule also applies to everyone under the age of 18.

Anyone in this situation in England is now advised instead to take a PCR test as soon as possible. You are not required to self-isolate while waiting for the result. 

If the result is negative, no further action is needed. However, you are advised to take extra measures like wearing face coverings in enclosed spaces and limiting contact with others, especially the clinically vulnerable.

If you test positive on any Covid test or start showing symptoms, you must still self-isolate for 10 days from that point.

When do you need to self-isolate?

You still need to self-isolate for 10 days if you:

test positive for Covid-19 or start showing symptoms

  • are an adult who has not been fully vaccinated, and you are identified by contact     tracers as a close contact of someone who has tested positive
  • are an adult who lives with someone who tests positive and you are not fully vaccinated
  • arrive in the UK from a red list country
  • are an adult who has not been fully vaccinated and you arrive in the UK from an amber list country

What does self-isolation mean?

Self-isolation means staying at home and not going out for any reason. 

You should order online groceries, or ask friends or family to help.

No-one from outside your household should come inside, unless to deliver essential care.

If you test positive and feel fine, but subsequently develop symptoms, you must restart your 10-day isolation.

If you have symptoms or test positive, you should: 

  • Keep your distance from other members of your household
  • Leave windows open to improve ventilation
  • If possible, sleep and eat in a different room, and use a separate bathroom
  • If you share a bathroom, use it after everyone else and clean it thoroughly
