We have not had much access to our fields due to the appalling weather. As the weather may soon allow us to play some sport, we have to be aware of the wider concerns about a possible epidemic.
The Trust does not manage or select individual teams. We will rely on the good sense of our users and their opponents about exercising self-quarantine and not including people with the symptoms of the disease. We will observe the Government advice in the coming weeks and months.
As individuals, please ensure that you are using tissues, washing your hands frequently and thoroughly for 20 seconds. Some people are bringing their own hand sanitiser. The Trust has installed hand sanitiser units by the doors and the bar of the pavilion. We hope that we have enough liquid to maintain these.
As a trust, we wish to ensure that the playing of sport goes ahead but we would only wish our clubs to proceed if they felt safe to play. We are doing our utmost to offer a clean environment but we rely upon our users not to infect communal areas.
There is a hierarchy of conditions that we can see-
- If you are in a high risk category then you may wish to consider to avoid coming to the Trust.
- If you are showing symptoms, then please self-isolate and use the telephone or website 111 for advice. Naturally we do not expect you to come to the Trust.
- If your club or team has a confirmed case, please let us know. We will work closely with the NHS and also inform other member clubs. There may be implications for the Trust in that Public Health England may visit, make a risk assessment and advise on specific measures such as deep cleaning and a contact assessment. The government website shown below gives much latest guidance and no doubt, will be updated:
The Trust Board has set up an emergency action co-ordination group. The group can be contacted via http://www.dulwichsportsground.com/
If you have any suggestions to improve our response, please do let us know.
