Coronavirus Update


Following our statement yesterday in respect of Covid 19 (Coronavirus) we wish to update you. Having considered the advice from Cricket Ireland and the relevant public authorities, NCU has undertaken the following actions:

  • The NCU Office has now been closed to staff and visitors from 5pm this evening –  working from home procedures have been established, and staff are contactable by phone or email during normal business hours (except Tuesday 17th March, which is a public holiday for the NCU Office and recognised as a statutory holiday for NCU staff);
  • We will endeavour to fulfil external business meetings during the period when the office is closed by phone or video conferencing, as appropriate;
  • We will cancel any non-essential travel by staff during this period;
  • All cricket activity led by NCU staff has been postponed and we have been advising the relevant organisations and individuals involved;

There is a vast amount of information available regarding COVID-19, but the following websites contain regularly updated information both in the UK and ROI.

Anyone with suspected symptoms of Coronavirus should follow Government health advice and:

  • Isolate themselves from other people – this means going into a different, well-ventilated room alone, with a phone.
  • Dial 111 in the UK or 112 in ROI to report your symptoms and seek advice.
  • In a medical emergency (if you have severe symptoms) dial 999.

If you have any concerns regarding a potential Coronavirus case at your club, dial 111 in the UK and 112 in ROI

At this stage the steps that we have taken also relate to NCU planned activities up to 9th April 2020.  We will continue to actively monitor developments on a day-to-day basis, and provide further updates as appropriate.
