It is fantastic to see so many returning and new faces on the mat – last night was our biggest session for some time. We are very happy to welcome you to the Club.
It is easy to forget as life returns to normal that the coronavirus is still in circulation – 45,066 cases were logged on Thursday, over 7,000 people are in hospital with Covid and sadly the death toll is running at between 800 – 1,000 per week. Obviously the vaccine has significantly reduced the risk of infection and hospitalisation, but it is not 100% effective.
The virus is largely airborne, as we enter the autumn/winter season it will become more transmissible and with us all spending more time indoors, the risk of infection will rise.
We will endeavour to keep doors / windows open for as long as practical in the hall to ensure a steady supply of fresh air.
Please continue to follow best practice on hand hygiene – hand sanitiser is available in the hall.
Whilst Government requirements and restrictions have been lifted, and parents are welcome to stay and watch, mask wearing and distancing is still recommended.
The club has a Test and Trace QR code – this is displayed on the board when you enter the hall, you can check in using the Covid-19 app.
If you should return a positive test result or are showing symptoms associated with Covid, please do not attend training sessions. This advice applies to all illnesses – it is general good practice, both for yourself and to protect other people in such a close contact sport as judo.
Latest guidance on coronavirus can be found on the Gov.UK website.
