Special Announcement – Reopening Society (Coronavirus Period)

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT:

The UK was first placed in lockdown on Monday 23 March: Boris Johnson announced that all but essential businesses and sporting associations were to close with immediate effect, while members of the public were to stay in their homes except to shop for essentials or go out in certain circumstances, including one form of daily.

The good news so far is the trajectory is going in the right direction. Hospital admissions down and care home deaths decreasing.

The club welcomes the latest press release from the Government regarding reopening Society & Business(in stages) and we will have more details Sunday Evening May 10th when the prime minister will make a public announcement.

 

Our club is a vital amenity for fitness and well-being in the local community. It is a priority for our club to play as part of the reopening of society.

Public safety and adherence to public health measures are at the heart of intentions.

Coronavirus Put Simply – Advice For RARC

Top infectious disease experts  said that the coronavirus outbreak is getting worse and warned elderly and sick people to avoid traveling or circulating in crowds.

While the sick and elderly are at most risk, it is a virus and all precautions must be made to avoid the spread, just because you are not in this category doesn’t mean you should ignore the possibility of you been a carrier.

We ask member/players to forgo the usual pre- and post-game handshake and go for an elbow bump or similar instead.

If you become unwell follow the guidance available at the following links.

Since the first notification of an outbreak on 31st December 2019,  Coronavirus (COVID-19) has spread across territories around the world. The virus infects the lungs causing a viral pneumonia and causes initial symptoms of fever with cough and sore throat. It can progress to shortness of breath and breathing difficulties leading to viral pneumonia. The current COVID-19 is now a pandemic and as the situation evolves, advise will change and potentially become more restrictive.

 

Whilst there is lots of great advise out there, it’s important to follow OFFICIAL advise from the UK government (and NHS). Key links are:

Here is the latest PRESS RELEASE on the outbreak.

Here is a very informative YOUTUBE explanation, worth a watch (8mins).

Hygiene kept simple

Public Health England (PHE) recommends that the following precautions are taken to help prevent people from catching and spreading COVID-19:

 

  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze.
  • Do not touch your eyes, nose or mouth if your hands are not clean
  • Avoid hand shaking
  • Put used tissues in the bin straight away
  • Wash your hands with soap and water often – use hand sanitiser or alcohol gel (at least 60%) if soap and water are not available.
  • Try to avoid close contact with people who are unwell

IMPORTANT

Symptoms include fever, cough or sore throat, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing. It is possible to carry the virus for several days without noticeable symptoms. People of all ages can be infected by the coronavirus. Older people, and people with pre-existing medical conditions (such as weakened immune systems,  diabetes, cancer and chronic lung disease ) appear to be more vulnerable to becoming severely ill with the virus. While the sick and elderly are at most risk, it is a virus and all precautions must be made to avoid the spread, just because you are not in this category doesn’t mean you should ignore the possibility of you been a carrier.

We’re closely monitoring the situation and awaiting further government information and advice following government meetings. If there are any big changes, teams will be emailed and information will be posted on this blog, facebook, insta and twitter.
