SCRA COVID GUIDANCE 7th October


SCRA GUIDANCE FOLLOWING SCOTTISH GOVERNMENT ANNOUNCEMENT ON CORONOVIRUS RESTRICTIONS

7TH OCTOBER 2020

Temporary steps announced to tackle record infection rates.

Further measures to reduce the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) are to come into effect later this week as Scotland recorded more than 1,000 new positive test results in a single day. Restrictions will come into force from from 00:01 Saturday 10 October. Central belt area focusing on five health board areas (Ayrshire & Arran; Forth Valley; Greater Glasgow & Clyde; Lanarkshire; Lothian):

  • No adult (18+) contact sports or training, except professional sports, indoor or outdoor

Although Coastal Rowing is a non-contact sport, there are many aspects of it where individuals may inadvertently come into close contact with each other (launching & recovering boats, assisting crew into the boat, ‘crabbing’ etc).The boats and associated equipment also have lots of shared contact points e.g. oars , gunwales, etc. Therefore clubs should regard Coastal Rowing in fixed seat boats, with more than one household, in the context of an Organised Outdoor Contact Sport.

We await any update which may come from SportScotland so guidance may be revised in due course.
