Statement from the MPBA Multi Section
As of the 4th of July 2020, the Government has allowed meetings in groups, outside, with people of different households, whilst following COVID-19 guidelines to prevent the spread of the virus.
In following with the Government guidelines for recreational clubs, all participating members in our forthcoming events will complete a risk assessment checklist to insure they are aware of the potential outcomes involved in gathering as a group. These checklists will then be passed on to the organiser of the event, to ensure everyone participating is aware of the dangers of COVID-19 and contracting it via the meeting.
Our COVID-19 plan follows strict Government social distancing regulations, in order to keep those involved safe, and aware.
These regulations include:
- Roping off the area of activity, so the general public have little/no contact with the club and participants, therefore lowering the risk of contracting and spreading the disease, and in turn protecting others around the area.
- Wearing masks and surgical gloves to prevent spreading of the disease between participating members.
- The use of the 2m apart rule when possible, with leniency in places such as the racing area where there is limited space, and between members of the same household.
- An availability of hand sanitiser in order to prevent spreading of the virus within the club.
