Welsh Government National Restrictions Update From 9/11/2020

With the announcement from the First Minister of Wales regarding post firebreak regulations and restrictions here is the updated guidance all clubs should follow.

The initial guidance from SLSA Wales hasn’t changed and the main principles still apply:
• Social distancing should be maintained at all times (including under 11 where possible)
• All new activities should be risk assessed and submitted to SLSA Wales
• Track and trace procedures need to be in place
• Equipment disinfected between use

Full guidance can be found here.

Outdoor training

In the outdoor environment, this will be a return to the situation we were in before the firebreak. Club activities can take place in a group of up to 30 in outdoor sport. Children aged under 11 and those organising the activity (such as coaches) are not included in these numbers, but the organisers will need to take all reasonable measures to reduce the risk of spreading the virus. No multiple groups will be permitted at this stage.

There will no longer be the requirement for people to stay within their local authority boundary, so responsible activity outdoors will be able to restart on the 9th November.

Indoor and swimming pools

All hired facilities should have their own COVID 19 response and procedures in place. Clubs should make themselves familiar with these and work with the facility to follow these procedures in addition to the SLSA Wales guidance.

Clubs are also reminded not to use raised voices or shout in confined indoor spaces due to the higher risk of droplet transmission.

Club activities can take place in a group of up to 15 indoors and in swimming pools. Children aged under 11 and those organising the activity (such as coaches) are not included in these numbers, but the organisers will need to take all reasonable measures to reduce the risk of spreading the virus. No multiple groups will be permitted at this stage.

There will no longer be the requirement for people to stay within their local authority boundary, so responsible activity indoors and in pools will be able to restart on the 9th November.

We feel the rule of 15 indoors is a step back from the situation before the firebreak and will be working closely with Sport Wales and the WSA to develop a safe plan to increase numbers in the future.

If you have any more questions Welsh Government guidance can be found here or email covidfaq@slsawales.org.uk email and someone will be in touch.
