UK Government Update - 22nd September 2020
Updated guidance has been issued by the UK Government relating to organised indoor sport in England. This update now excludes over 18s from 'Rule of Six' exemption allowing people to take taking part in organised indoor sport. An exemption is still in place for disabled people taking part in organised indoor sports.
What does this mean?
From the 24th September, if your club has sessions for those who are over 18, they can continue to take place with larger numbers, provided they are in groups of 6 (for example 1 coach & 5 participants) and do not mix. If groups of 6 are likely to mix, these activities must not go ahead.
Under 18s and disabled organised sporting activities remain unaffected by the changes announced.
You must continue to abide by any local or national rules that are put in place for your area, as well as our reopening guidelines.
We also want to let you know about the new NHS QR Code posters.
From the 24th September the new NHS Covid-19 app is due to launch, as part of this app is the ability to scan QR Codes to help trace and stop the spread of the virus.
Visitors are able to ‘Check-in’ at different premises using this as option as an alternative to providing their contact details.
You can create a QR code by visiting https://www.gov.uk/create-coronavirus-qr-poster Before you start, you will need
Your email address
The address of your club
If you have more than one venue, you will also need:
The address of each location
An email address for the point of contact for each location
A phone number for the point of contact for each location
If you hire your venue, you should contact the them to find out if they have already set up an NHS QR Code for the venue.
Once you have registered, in most cases you’ll receive your QR code poster by email within a few minutes. However, there may sometimes by a delay of up to 3 to 4 hours.
The NHS have created a Help and Support page with more information on the QR Codes https://faq.covid19.nhs.uk/category/?id=CAT-01027&parentid=CAT-01025
Reopening - update 9th July
On the 9th July the UK Government announced that indoor gyms, swimming pools and sports facilities can reopen from the 25th July.
We have reviewed the government guidance linked with this announcment and discussed with Bluefin Sport and apart from one slight change, the guidelines we published prior to the announcement are suitable.
The change required relates to the number of participants allowed. After reviewing and speak with Bluefin, there has not been a limit set by the UK Government, therefore we have amended this point. Each club is different, and must take in to account the number of participants in each session whilst being able to follow social distancing guidelines and have suitable air flow within the area. While keeping this in mind clubs must also not exceed the Participant Ratio rules set by the insurers.
While clubs have been shutdown due to COVID-19 in agreement with Bluefin Sport, the insurance has been extended to include video based sessions. With lockdown measures begin to be lifted across the UK and as long as relevant, social distancing and gathering rules allows, the insurance has also been extended to cover one one sessions in public places.
