While West Ham will not play matches again until 30 April at the earliest, they are committed to keeping the Club running as best they can during this time and ensuring that the impact upon their staff and their families is as minimal as it can be The Club are also supporting requests from West Ham employees who wish to join the hundreds of thousands of people volunteering to help the NHS at the present time.
