Announced last week, the restriction is in place from Wednesday, the same day of the fixture between Burnley and Watford.

Watford have endured inconsistent form recently, their last game being a last minute loss to Brentford, courtesy of a Bryan Mbuemo penalty.

Burnley did well to hold high-flyers West Ham to a goalless draw.

You can visit ‘Getting a digital NHS COVID Pass’ and start your application now.

Ensure you do it ahead of the match, as it can take a few hours to get confirmed on the app.

You will get a digital pass with a QR code. You can show this in the app, download it to your apple wallet or print or email it to yourself.

If you cannot apply digitally using the NHS app or online service, you can ask for an NHS Covid Pass letter to be sent to you by post.

This is who can get a digital Covid pass

If you’re aged 16 or over, you can get a digital NHS COVID Pass.

People under 16 may need to show a negative test result.

If you’re 18 or over, you can also use your digital NHS Covid Pass for domestic events and venues.

People under 18 do not have to show proof of their vaccination or test results for domestic events or venues in England.

To show your vaccination status, you must have been vaccinated in England, Wales or the Isle of Man.

If you were vaccinated in Scotland, you need to both be registered with a GP in England and live in England.

How long a digital NHS COVID Pass is valid for?

If you have had:

  • A vaccine used in the UK – your NHS Covid Pass lasts for 30 days, but the 30 day period refreshes every time you log in.
  • A negative PCR test or rapid lateral flow test – your NHS Covid Pass is valid for 48 hours after a negative result.
  • A positive antibody test – your NHS COVID Pass lasts 30 days, but the 30 day period refreshes every time you log in (for up to 180 days after you took the test).

If you download your digital NHS Covid Pass as a PDF, always check the expiry date before using it.

If you’re fully vaccinated or had a positive test result, the barcode on a PDF is valid for 30 days.

The NHS App may ask you to confirm your phone number when you log in.

If you do not confirm it, your NHS COVID Pass will be valid for 72 hours.
