Now, with a view to the match against Fluminense next Wednesday, also for the Brazilian Championship, the board demanded “the collaboration of all” in the sanitary aspect.

Corinthians, which currently occupies the sixth position in the national tournament, recalled that to avoid a punishment it is essential “respect the distance between people, the” constant use “of the mask and” wash your hands “.
