|The welfare of all athletes, coaches, workforce, volunteers and parents is of paramount importance to City of Norwich Swimming Club. |
We will run March Long Course to plan as we are very conscious that swimmers are working towards their goals and they value the times they will gain. However, we would remind all those attending the gala of the relevant and 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 COVID-19 situation develops. Please read the latest advice here: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-covid-19-information-for-the-public – this is updated regularly. If you have travelled to any of these areas please do not attend the gala.We expect all Swim England members to comply with the latest Government and NHS guidance. This can be found on their website: https://www.gov.uk/government/organisations/public-health-england.
If you feel unwell please call NHS 111 for advice. Do not attend the gala.We will continue to plan for March Long Course as normal but we will be following Government guidance and assessing risk as appropriate.Please remind swimmers not to attend the gala if they are unwell – this should be standard practice. Many clubs will have swimmers and parents attending who may be vulnerable or suffer with compromised imune systems and we must ensure they are protected.
Many thanks for your co-operation and we look forward to some fast and competitive swimming over the weekend.
