Dens Park.

Dundee FC have urged people with cold or flu symptoms not to attend Saturday’s home match against Dunfermline.

The advice to those who are ill to stay away from Dens Park will remain in place until further notice.

The Dark Blues have stressed that the health of their employees and spectators will be their “top priority” as they deal with the coronavirus challenge.

They are scheduled to face the Pars at home this weekend but have asked anyone showing cold or flu symptoms not to attend the Championship game.

They will also heed government advice as to how to deal with the pandemic on an ongoing basis.

The statement read: “Dundee Football Club have been monitoring the COVID-19 situation on a daily basis.

“Along with the SPFL and the SFA, we will continue to heed the guidance of government and health authorities as we collectively monitor and assess all developments related to COVID-19.

“While we plan to play all home games at Kilmac Stadium at Dens Park as currently scheduled, this is a rapidly-changing matter that requires frequent evaluation and assessment by all involved.

“Our commitment to the health, safety and security of everyone who represents our organisation, or visits Kilmac Stadium at Dens Park, will at all times be our top priority.

“As such we would respectfully ask anyone who has any cold or flu like symptoms not to attend current scheduled matches at the stadium.

“On the advice of the governing authorities stringent protocols have been put into place at Kilmac Stadium at Dens Park to fight the spread of viruses.

“Dundee Football Club will continue to monitor the situation and communicate any updates as they evolve.”
