The following has been received from the Rugby Football Union.

There have been a number of queries about whether we are putting out any information for clubs on the Coronavirus.

As a Union we will not be giving advice or guidance as the latest information is available via the Government website and is updated daily. It is important that clubs use the government’s guidance to inform their knowledge, available here  https://www.gov.uk/guidance/wuhan-novel-coronavirus-information-for-the-public?gclid=CjwKCAiAvonyBRB7EiwAadauqeYJ2mMvVaQkTC9HPUsOyQlxnV0e-1avnXWHM41AduzME9tzdXCk3xoCDlwQAvD_BwE

As tour season is approaching we advise clubs to monitor via the Government  website the situation at their overseas proposed tour destination . The link is as below

It is up to individual clubs to decide internally if or how or what they communicate to their members.
