Covid Update March 2022
The laws on Covid precautions have relaxed its hold on how we conduct ourselves, and the seriousness of the impact of Covid is undoubtedly less in the majority of cases. It can still be serious for some though, and many will still be very concerned about the health impact it can have. Last year we operated a 2 metre distancing policy between coaches and students, with an angling or non-angling parent/grandparent having to attend every event too so they could help on the close contact needed for landing a fish, unhooking etc. The coaches maintained 2m distancing with students stepping back from the tackle when required for the coach to spray the rod etc. with antibacterial disinfectant, then change or mend tackle, respray, and in turn step back The student then resumed fishing. To the best of my knowledge by doing this we stayed Covid infection free.
This year, due to the relaxations BUT with some coaches and students having very justifiable reservations, the following options will apply;
IF, and I stress IF, both students and their allocated coaches are happy to operate without social distancing then that is fine by us. BOTH parties though must be happy with this, or the distancing and PPE use outlined above will be applied.
So an adult must attend for the whole session unless previously agreed with us. We will review this and the overall Covid rules as the season progresses.
