Woking Covid Cases
 
See Woking have postponed their next two matches because a player has tested positive for Covid. Hope this does not affect us given last Saturday's match against them.

Re: Woking Covid Cases
 
Have any of the rest of their squad tested positive? If not then postponing 2 matches seems excessive. Surely best policy is for the infected player to self isolate and everyone else is fine to go to work. It's what the rest of the country are doing!

Re: Woking Covid Cases
 
Altringham have done the same. I agree it seems strange given only one positive test, but surely they must have the league's support to do this.

Re: Woking Covid Cases
 
If team members have had both jabs then I thought they did not have to self isolate, but may need daily tests.

I can only assume many of the Woking team and coaches etc have not been vaccinated.

That's worrying as the league will be screwed come winter. Way OTT that as premiership clubs don't do it.

I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of footballers and professional sports people haven't been vaccinated.
A lot were originally concerned that an adverse reaction could affect their training etc...

Out of curiosity, in previous seasons would this have been a fixture we would have travelled to same day? It's around a 3 hour drive and an evening kick off.

yes rarely stayed over due to the cost involved.

This could get out of hand. I'm not suggesting that either Woking or Alty are doing this, but teams are going to start playing the covid card if they don't fancy their chances in their next game, due to injuries or their opponent being in good form

Yeah I imagine teams will but will have to play the games before a certain date and will be making a challenge for themselves having to catch up on missed games.

Yeovil and Chesterfield play each other on Saturday now. They were due to play Alty and Woking respectively.

Exactly this. If someone I work with gets covid,I don't need to go off. If the league want to avoid a total embarrassment going forward ,they need to step in now. How can Woking dictate this?

India managed to call off a Test match when none of them had Covid. Itís a scandal the way itís being used as an excuse.

Woking arent dictating it, the games are off as per the national league covid practices and procedures whether we agree or like them is a different story.

Players that opt to not get jabbed should be fined if games get postponed as a result.

Clubs that collectively have players that donít get jabbed should be fined and points deducted if games get postponed as a result.

Like some have already said the National League need to step in now to save the season becoming more of a farce.

To be fair, having the vaccine or not is a voluntary decision. You can't fine someone for making a choice they are perfectly allowed to make.

As it stands the government aren't enforcing the jab on anyone, or giving employers the power to police vaccination of staff as they see fit.

Until either the law changes or National league guidelines change it's something we have to put up with.

You could send an email I suppose......

Maybe clubs should have been proactive at getting vaccines like Chesterfield where last season.

Yes as much as Iím not fond of Furlough FC they actually did do something right last season.

Cenotaff 14th September 2021 08.59:27

Re: Woking Covid Cases
 
Whether you get the jab or not, you can still catch Covid and spread it. The players with it will have to isolate whether they've had the jab or not.
