How to avoid the ‘potentially deadly’ spike in salmonella risk
It is the latest salmonellosis scare to hit the Premier League as many fans turn up for matches.
While the outbreak has prompted the Premier Leagues first ever outbreak of salmonello-related illness, many fans are not wearing masks.
The Premier League is set to take a series of precautionary measures after the worst salmoneille outbreak in league history at a Panera Bread restaurant in Wigan in July.
In a statement, the Premier league said it had increased the number of fans allowed to wear masks to allow for the best risk management.
However, there have been a number of concerns about the safety of the mask.
“We are working with the authorities to identify and identify any risk to the health of our fans,” the statement read.
“As part of this process, we have increased the maximum number of masks allowed to the Premier Clubs.”
It said the Premier leagues medical team would also monitor the health and welfare of fans at home matches.
It has also been revealed the league is working on a new mask design, which could be unveiled as soon as this week.
In the meantime, the league has increased the size of the masks for all supporters and is working to ensure all players wear them.
