It's great that capacity crowds are now able to enjoy the Premier League action again.

But, coronavirus still poses a risk so the UK's Deputy Chief Medical Officer Professor Jonathan Van-Tam has asked match-attending fans to follow simple rules to help stop the spread of COVID-19.

"COVID has not gone away," he says. "And if we, as supporters, want to keep attending matches, we've got to do our bit to keep ourselves and other people safe."

He has urged supporters to get two doses of the vaccine, stay away from stadiums if they have any coronavirus symptoms, plan their journeys so they can arrive early as well as regularly washing their hands.
