Coronavirus: staying safe at the club

We are pleased to announce that with England now returned to ‘Plan A’ there is no longer a legal requirement to wear a face mask in a public setting indoors. The advice remains that you should continue to wear a face-covering in crowded and enclosed spaces where you are in contact with other people you don’t normally meet. Please continue to use your discretion in changing rooms particularly.

 

  • We no longer require visitors to use the NHS COVID check-in, but you may continue to do so voluntarily.
  • All changing and shower facilities are now open and available for use. They are clean, the water supply system has been flushed through and tape removed.
  • We advise anyone using indoor facilities to open doors and windows to let fresh air in. This is the most effective way to reduce airborne transmission of the virus.
  • Cleaning your hands with anti-viral/anti-bacterial gel is a good practice when you arrive and before you leave the club. This also reduces the risk of infection from waterborn nasties like Weil’s Disease (leptospirosis).
  • Use your digital fobs when accessing the changing facilities, even if the door has been propped open.

 

As we now know it is still possible to catch and spread COVID-19, even if you are fully vaccinated.

 

COVID-19 will be a feature of our lives for the foreseeable future, so we need to learn to live with it and manage the risk to ourselves and others.

 

Anyone with COVID-19 symptoms or a positive test result should stay at home, self-isolate and let us know immediately.
