There will be a wide range of measures to protect public health being implemented at the tournament. These include:
• Hand sanitiser points across the site
• Personal hygiene information posters
• Medical staff available within the site grounds to assist players and spectators with medical emergencies

We can all play our part in helping to protect ourselves and others;
• Maintain good hand hygiene, avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth
• Always carry tissues with you, cover your nose and mouth when coughing or sneezing and use them to catch your cough or sneeze
• Dispose of tissues in the nearest bin, and to kill the germs, wash your hands with soap and water, or use a sanitiser gel
