Arsenal personnel who had recent close contact with Mikel will now self isolate in line with Government health guidelines.
We expect this to be a significant number of people from Colney, including the full first team squad & coaching staff,
as well as a smaller number of people from our Hale End Academy which we have also temporarily closed as a precaution.
We expect those who did not have close contact with Mikel to return to work in the coming days.
In the meantime our Colney and Hale End training centres will undergo a deep clean and our other club sites are operating as normal.”
