FAQs

We ask all members -

  • Where a face covering to/from training and whilst moving through the communal areas of the leisure centre
  • Face coverings are to be worn on the Durham School site until in the water.
  • Coaches do not need to wear face coverings whilst coaching.
  • Regular Hand washing
  • Not to car share with other members
  • DCC hand santiser is provided at the entrance to Freeman's Quay.  Sanitiser is provided at Durham School.
  • We have implemented a strict one way system at our facilities.
  • Arrive beach ready for the session
  • Poolside chairs will be wiped down at the end of the session, with assistance from Covid Volunteers.
  • Respect social distancing rules at all times
  • Stay away from the pool if showing symptoms of COVID19 and follow government guidance.

What is the protocol if somebody within a bubble/lane shows Covid-19 symptoms?

  • If a person in a ‘bubble/lane’ shows symptoms related to Covid-19 they are asked to remove themselves from the session and go for a test. 
  • Stay away from the session and follow government guidance until the results of that test are known.
  • Others members in the lane can continue to swim until the results are known.
  • If it is positive the entire lane will then isolate for 14 days. If negative the swimmer will return.

What is the protocol for informing club members if someone within a squad tests positive for Covid-19?

It’s the responsibility of individuals/parents to contact Track and Trace and provide them with details of any people they have been in contact with at less than 2 metres for more than 15 minutes. The club keeps a record of attendance at all club sessions which will be made available to Track and Trace upon request if the subject is unable to provide these themselves.

I have received my test results back and they are ‘inconclusive’, what should I do?

If you had a test because you had symptoms, you must keep self-isolating and have another test within 5 days of your symptoms starting.

If you had a test but have not had any symptoms, you do not need to self-isolate while you wait to get another test.
