Coronavirus Update - Monday 19th July 2021
Following the confirmation from the UK Government on the changes to Covid Restriction from Monday 19th July, I wanted to confirm what this means to us at Burgess Hill Runners.
The advanced booking process has proven popular and useful from both a covid perspective and also a coaching perspective so is currently planned to remain in place as we go forward. We will also continue to record runners' details in case another participant tests positive.
Future access to Burgess Hill Girls School has not been agreed yet and due to the School Holidays, this will not happen until September at the earliest so for now, we will continue to meet at different locations each week. This does give the coaches greater flexibility and variety in the sessions so again will be something we review regularly.
Session group sizes are currently capped to 20 per group and this will remain from coaching perspective rather than anything covid related.
We will no longer need to be in a covid secure environment but a common sense approach should be used when using public areas.
Distance yourself wherever possible
Minimise the amount of time in close proximity to others
Respect other people’s personal space
No non-essential contact – high fiving, hugs etc
Stay Home if unwell or showing any symptoms
If you have any questions on this please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
