COVID-19

What happens if a player tests positive for COVID-19?

If there is a player who has tested positive, they must from that point self-isolate (or if they have symptoms, from the moment of symptoms) and NHS Test and Trace will pick up from this point. The player shoulder contact NHS 111.

The Club can carry on, but be mindful to ensure all the guidelines are strictly followed on social distancing, hand washing etc. If Test and Trace contact them, they must provide the details and then if deemed anyone needs to isolate on their instruction, do so.

What happens if i have played an opposition team and one of their players has tested positive for COVID-19?

Match play is not considered “close contact” so no action is neeeded unless individuals experience symptoms, in which case they must self-siolate from that point as per Government guidance.
