Covid Communication @ 12:30pm Sat 17th July
We are all aware the government have made the decision to relax most of the restrictions from Monday 19th July. Indeed Everyone Active and Swim England are returning to almost ‘business as usual’.
The committee do not feel this is the right thing for us to do at this time considering how the cases of Covid-19 in our local schools are increasing and we have a duty of care for all our members and volunteers. We all want a summer break free from periods of isolation due to positive cases.
This week we have had notification of 2 swimmers who have tested positive for Covid-19.
The committee met virtually yesterday evening to discuss the current situation and have decided that for the safety of all our members and volunteers, the current rules we have must stay in place i.e. THERE WILL BE NO CHANGES.
Please refer to the Parent swimmer guide dated April 2021 for what this means entirely.
- Arrive beach style ready
- Swimmers to continue to wear masks if over 11years old as this is an inside facility that could be classed as busy
- Change poolside
- No changing rooms available
- No access to the balcony unless parent of child 8 years or under. Those parents accessing the balcony please wait until all the swimmers are in before you enter the building. Also scan the facility QR code for track and trace
- Swimmers to wait outside until volunteer brings in the group 5 minutes before session starts.
If you / your child has been absent from swimmer for a week or more (for whatever reason) please complete a new Covid Health Form on this link:
If you or your child feel unwell in anyway/ more tired than usual / hay-fever symptoms please do not attend the session. These are symptoms that are been reported to us by people who have tested positive. Please follow the NHS procedures regarding testing.
The club will review this over the summer holidays and release a statement regarding arrangements at the pool in time for our return on week beginning 6th September.
Please support us in this last push to the summer break.
