Covid Update 22 September 2020

Those of you who are just rediscovering the magic of getting back on the water, the blisters etc, will be relieved to hear that the First Minister’s speech on Tuesday 22nd did not tighten the restrictions on outdoor contact sport. It is still permitted for people to come together in ‘field of play bubbles” (e.g. a crew) to engage in their activity, with a reduced need to socially distance – for the duration of the activity only.

Before getting on the water and once off the water, the main public health ‘FACTS’ messaging remains: Face coverings; Avoid crowded places; Clean your hands regularly; Two meters distance; Self-isolate and book a test if you have symptoms. We are still in the midst of a pandemic, so clubs should follow and regularly review their risk assessments, ensure that they have a Covid 19 officer(s) and adhere to the latest government guidelines here:…/new-measures-to-drive-down…/

Two changes which may affect clubs are the restrictions on car sharing out with your own household and if you go for an after-row ‘refreshment’, chucking out time is now 10pm! Stay informed. Stay safe and please share any useful information and experiences with us.
