Alert Level 1 Session Guidelines

We are currently at Alert Level 1 so just a reminder about what this means for our sessions:
 

  • Check in with the coach taking roll call: It's important that we know exactly who is at the sessions in case contact tracing is required. 
     

  • At the sessions: As we are outside, keep 1m distance from each other. We all need to do our best to keep to not get too close to each other and take simple, common-sense steps with good hygiene; cover coughs and sneezes with tissues, elbows or clothing and avoid any touching contact with others.
     

  • And of course - if you feel unwell or if anyone in your household is unwell please stay at home and away from the group.

We all of course be keeping a close eye on any changes that may happen and let you know!
