David Artell has told the club’s official website that ‘everyone at the Football Club’ is fit and healthy and the first-team continues to train until told otherwise.
The club have shut down the Academy but with a first-team game against Northampton Town to prepare for on April 4th Artell says his focus has to be on that.
That fixture looks unlikely to go ahead and Artell says that the health of employees is paramount.
The Crewe Alexandra boss said: “It is what it is and we can only do what we are told by the powers that be.
“We have to get on with it. It looks grim in the short-term for the country and world but we have got to do everything we can to get through.
“We have taken precautions here for a number of weeks. Our doctor was on top of it very early. He is a clever fella and everyone is fit and healthy at the club.
“I have spoken to a number of clubs and some are still in training and some are not. As it stands we have a game to prepare for on 4th April. That looks unlikely to takes place but that is where we are.
“I didn’t think we would sitting here talking about virus but the health of everyone is paramount.
He added: “We haven’t done testing and if we did we would get the answers in four days’ time and things can change dramatically.”
