Covid-19 update

As of Monday 19 July, most restrictions in England relating to COVID-19 will be eased.

  • There will be no legal restrictions around numbers gathering across both indoor and outdoor settings.
  • There will be no legal requirement for clubs to collect data for test and trace.
  • There will be no restrictions on social distancing.
  • There will be a new emphasis on personal responsibility for reducing risk.

This is fantastic news, but the pandemic is far from over and therefore it’s important that we continue with some of the safeguarding measures that we have in place.
