Novel coronavirus (COVID-19) guidance from Swim England

Erica Eastbury

 

  Please see the information below from Swim England regarding the current situation in relation to Coronavirus. 

 

The Welfare of our athletes, coaches, workforce and volunteers is of paramount importance.

This communication is designed to inform, rather than alarm, and contains relevant links to the most up-to-date guidance from the Government and Public Health England regarding novel coronavirus (COVID-19).

 

  • The Government has issued advice around travel to and from certain areas as the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) situation develops. Please read the latest advice here. This is updated regularly.

 

 

 

  • Swim England will be continuing to plan for our events as normal but we will be following Government guidance and assessing risk as appropriate. We will be issuing specific guidance regarding forthcoming Swim England events as necessary to those due to attend. 

 

Previous advice still stands that if any swimmer or family member, coach or volunteer feels unwell they should not attend training sessions or galas and we would like to reinforce the advice given by the NHS, link above, relating to hygiene precautions to help reduce the spread of infection.

As advised by Swim England, appropriate risk assessments will be undertaken as necessary, that comply with government advice, when planning any future activities.

Many thanks for your cooperation.
