Sunderland’s match with Plymouth Argyle at the Stadium of Light this weekend will not be subject to the new ‘Plan B’ rules on Covid-19.

The Government announced new measures on Wednesday evening to combat the growing number of Covid-19 cases in the UK.

These involve vaccine passports, a return to working from home and more wearing of masks.

From Friday, face coverings will become compulsory in most public indoor venues, such as cinemas, theatres and places of worship.
