Good news: Arsenal re-opened their training centre

The club have also confirmed in their statement that they are re-opening the first-team training centre at London Colney and also the academy development centre at Hale End - both of which were closed for deep disinfection after Arteta was diagnosed with COVID-19.

However, a number of staff members, including the head coach himself and the men's first-team squad, are all still currently in self-isolation in their homes.

The mandatory isolation period ends on March 24.

Arsenal states that the club's management team is tracks the specific daily training and dietary programs for all their players.

The club also expressed its commitment to help the local community through the difficulty of coping with the coronavirus crisis.

"We continue to support our local community in these very difficult times and we are in discussions with local groups to find new ways to support our most vulnerable groups," was said in the club's statement.

"We are liaising with the local authority and the areas being explored range from providing online coaching and teaching, and staff volunteering to have regular phone contact with elderly local people feeling isolated.

"We are also looking into how we can support our casual workers.”
