Moyes previously self-isolated at the start of the pandemic after Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta tested positive.

The Scot went into isolation as a precautionary measure after coming into contact with Artet following a fixture between the Hammers and the Gunners.

Arteta's positive test directly led to the suspension of the 2019-20 season.
