NEWCASTLE Jets will provide extra support for Panamanian striker Adbiel Arroyo who will see out the COVID-19 crisis in Australia away from family and friends.
The Jets other overseas players and coaching staff are awaiting advice from Football Federation Australia but are desperate to return to their homelands.
The A-League is suspended, with the FFA to review the situation on April 22.
Joe Ledley's wife and three children are back in Wales. Fellow imports Bobby Burns and Wes Hoolahan are also keen to reunite with family.
However, it is too late for Arroyo to return to Panama. The Central American country is not accepting international flights and the capital city is virtually in lockdown.
Arroyo's girlfriend Yumeyli Carrington, who had been out here visiting, has returned to New York where she is based.
Jets chief executive Lawrie McKinna says Arroyo is in good spirits and speaks daily with his loved ones.
"The boys are his only contact so it's important that they get around him and make sure he is OK," McKinna said.
"As a club we have a duty of care, especially with our overseas players. We will be giving him as much support as he neeeds."
McKinna and the coaching staff will meet with the players on Thursday and distribute individual training programs.
"The programs are fitness based," McKinna said. "There will be exercises they can do at home plus running programs. We are looking at the possibility of bringing the Newcastle-based boys in for training in small groups. A bit of ball work, but mainly physical work. Some of the boys will go back to their families interstate and in Sydney.
"We want to make sure they are ticking over in readiness if the league resumes in late April.
"The boys in rehab, Lachy Jackson and Ben Kantarovski, will continue to work with our physio Nathan Renwick."
McKinna was still awaiting information from FFA and head of A-League Greg O'Rourke about financial implications due to the suspension of the league.
Clubs receive quarterly grants which are funded by a $57 million-a -year broadcast deal with Foxtel.
The next payment, which covers the players' wages, is due on April 15.
"Every day there is a phone hook-up at lunch time with the FFA and another at night with the owners," McKinna said.
"Things are changing every day."
Jets administration staff are continuing to work from home.
FFA is set to dramatically reduce their operations, with stand-down periods likely for national teams and technical staff. Other employees could be subject to redundancies.
