10th December 2021

With the Government announcing yesterday that the Country will be moving to ‘Plan B’ of their COVID-19 Guidance, Indoor Bowls Clubs will now need to implement the following protocols.

From Friday 10th December 2021 face coverings will be legally required to be worn by your members, visitors, and staff, who have face to face contact with the public, when they enter and move around the venue.

 The face covering can be removed when they are on the green playing and when having a drink and or meal.

 Please also be aware some of your members / visitors due to age, health or disability reasons are exempt from wearing face coverings. Whilst the majority will want to show an exemption card it is not a legal requirement to do so.

 In addition, if any of your members / staff live with or have been in contact with someone who has been identified as a suspected or confirmed case of the Omicron variant they must self-isolate for 10 days, even if they have been double or triple vaccinated.

 Finally, if you have any members of staff who can work from home, then you are encouraged to arrange this from Monday 13th December 2021.

 These directives will remain in place for the next six (6) weeks, but the Government will review after three (3) weeks and update on the next steps.
