Covid-19 Restrictions

The Directors would like to reassure all members and visitors to the club that your safety and enjoyment of the game remain our number one priority. The COVID-19 infection rates are high and the Omicron variant is still spreading rapidly. It is now more important than ever for us all to pull together to protect the NHS and to keep our club Covid secure.

Anyone who develops symptoms or tests positive for Covid must immediately self-isolate.
From Monday 17 Januarypeople who test positive will be able to leave self-isolation after a further five full days, subject to having two negative LFT results, 24 hours apart.
The day symptoms begin or you test positive is day zero. The next day is day one of your isolation period.
You can take your first test on day five. If it is negative, you can take another test 24 hours later on day six. Assuming this is also negative – and you do not have a temperature – you can immediately leave isolation.

Please do not come to the club if you feel unwell.

Unfortunately about 1 in 3 people with Covid-19 do not have symptoms but can still infect others.  Therefore, ALL Members and Visitors must wear a face covering and check their temperature on arrival in the foyer before entering the club. Anyone failing the temperature check will not be admitted. Please sanitise your hands and print your name in the book on the desk. We have an extremely efficient aircon system on the green and a fresh air flow system in both changing rooms, but please continue to wear your face covering when moving around the club. You may remove it when playing or eating and drinking. There are plenty of sanitisers around the club, so please use them, particularly when coming off the green and before eating or drinking.

If we all follow this regime and maintain social distancing we can continue to keep our club Covid secure. Thank you.
