The coronavirus has not gone away, so a few reminders about keeping each other safe.

Parents are welcome to stay and watch, mask wearing and distancing is no longer mandatory but is recommended.

Hand sanitiser is available in the hall.

If you have symptoms associated with Covid, or have tested positive, please isolate in line with Government guidance.

If other people with whom you are in close contact – at home, work, school – have tested positive or are showing signs of Covid, please follow the appropriate guidance. This is likely to vary based on age and vaccination status. Latest guidance can be found online. If in doubt, please do not attend.

The Club has it’s own QR code, displayed on the notice board as you enter the hall. Please check in using the NHS Covid-19 app to enable Track and Trace.

Keeping us all safe as restrictions lift

The lifting of restrictions on 19 July meant that judo could recommence as before. Albeit in a world where Covid is still a real and significant presence.

As announced previously, we are delaying the return of adult judo until September. Junior sessions will continue this week as normal, then with a summer timetable from 24 July.

As a minimum, all players should continue to exercise good hygiene. Hand sanitiser is available in the hall.

Please stay away if you or anyone in your household is exhibiting symptoms associated with Covid, or you have been advised to isolate.

Please bring your own drinks bottles – we will not be supplying water and cups.

Our QR code will remain – we would encourage all players over 16 and parents staying at the Club to scan and register with the NHS Covid app to enable Track and Trace.

Masks are no longer compulsory off the mat.
