Coronavirus - Covid-19

The club continues to monitor the Coronavirus situation and will be following Government and Swim England advice carefully. At this stage we have no plans for major changes to our offering. Our planned attendances at meets remain as scheduled . However, it is likely that we may see some form of disruption over the coming months. These months include both regional and national level target competitions as well as the Olympic Trials. 

Training will, as much as possible, continue as normal. There are currently no planned changes.  We will see some possible disruption and additional measures related to our use pools. Please look out for information, which will be sent on where relevant. It is important that we comply with all requests.

We would like to remind all members:

Please follow the latest Government advice relating to the spread of Covid-19 at all times - you can read it here

Read and follow the hygiene precautions to help reduce the spread of infection here

If self-isolation appllies to you or your family then do NOT attend training.

The measures below are about the spread of infection, you can spread infection without being ill. This advice includes Swimmers, Volunteers, Coaches and Parents. Wherever possible please shower BEFORE going poolside to swim, this keeps the outside out of the pool

DO:

  • wash your hands with soap and water often – do this for at least 20 seconds
  • always wash your hands when you get to training and when you get home
  • cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze
  • put used tissues in the bin straight away and wash your hands afterwards

DO NOT:

  • touch your eyes, nose or mouth if your hands are not clean
  • attend training if you are unwell, have a fever and/or cough
  • spray pool water from your mouth
  • attend training or if you are in self-isolation.

Chronic Conditions / Asthma

Athletes are reminded that optimal control of chronic medical conditions such as asthma are paramount to prevent secondary complications of Coronavirus infection (or any viral illness). Please speak to your doctor if you feel that your long term condition is not under control and ensure you always have a good supply of medications.

Please continue to monitor Team Feed, social media and the website regularly for updates to training and further information. Last minute changes to programme are possible.
