Under the current coronavirus Sars-cov-2 pandemic, safety is most important. To this extent, our government has sought to dedicate a special effort in fighting the spread of the disease.

1. Each sport’s/club’s Accountable Officer should name an existing member of staff as a COVID-19 officer, who will be responsible for oversight of the COVID-19 risk assessments, ensuring the necessary level of risk mitigations are in place and the minimum guidance are achieved has taken place and that sports and any partners/hosts can adhere to their guidance responsibilities within local constraints

In addition, the Welsh government has created a tracing program to help contain outbreaks even further, the Test Trace and Protect system (TTPS).

In support of this, as a Club, we are happy to provide some extra safety step.

 

Attendance requirements

Before attending (and by a logical common sense) each member will have to:

  • self declare they are not displaying symptoms of covid-19 and they have not been in contact with a confirmed case in the past 14 days
  • confirm our we have provided our most recent contact details to the club (generally full name and the phone number should be sufficient)
  • renounce to attend should any of the above occur at the last minute or should they generally feel unwell

The Club, in the person of the Covid-19 Officer, is also required to keep an attendance record of each session along with contact details of the archers, in support of TTPS, to be solely used should an outbreak occur.

 

If you have any question, don’t hesitate  to ask. We’re all in this together.
