Coronavirus: Clubs help tackle social isolation

5 Apr 2020

Premier League players, managers and legends have been calling fans who are at home alone as teams stay in touch with the vulnerable

Premier League clubs are making phone calls to ensure their supporters know they are not alone.

As the public observe the Government's social-distancing measures and stay at home during the coronavirus pandemic, people in vulnerable groups can become isolated.

With no-one to visit them, elderly people, or those with underlying health conditions who are particularly at risk from the virus, could feel increasingly lonely.

Here is what Premier League teams are doing to tackle isolation in their local communities.
