Watford will resume preparations for the remainder of the season this Wednesday, despite growing uncertainty, after the Premier League was suspended due to the coronavirus outbreak.

The Hornets were due to face Leicester City in Saturday's early kick off, but the decision was made to temporarily halt all matches during an emergency meeting on Friday morning.

That meeting was held as a result of a number of clubs being directly affected by the outbreak of the virus, including Watford, who had three members of personnel tested.

The Watford Observer understands those tests have since all returned negative and the players will return to work on Wednesday.

Any preparations could however be cut short once again, with the Premier League due to meet on Thursday morning to discuss a possible resolution to the current season, with the covid-19 outbreak predicted to affect the country beyond the current scheduled return date of April 3.

The focus of that meeting will be guided by decisions made during a UEFA meeting tomorrow, which is expected to announce the postponement of Euro 2020 until next summer.

Brighton and Hove Albion CEO Paul Barber has revealed that during Friday's emergency meeting, the league made it clear that their preference is for the current season to be completed, but solutions are also being considered should the campaign be scrapped, including a possible 22-team Premier League next season.

In the meantime, Watford have reassured players and staff about their working conditions and are continuing to follow government guidelines and restrict access to the training facilities to ensure safety.

The club is also considering ways in which it can offer support to the community during what is an unprecedented moment for the country.
