Dear Club COVID Co-ordinators,
We hope you are all continuing to stay safe and well.
We continue to stress that a Club COVID Co-ordinator is a mandatory requirement for affiliated clubs in the current climate and beyond into the new season. For Clubs that have updated or changed their COVID Coordinator since the start of the season or recently, please contact your Regional Development Officer so the Club details can be updated.
Please see the attached updated guidance approved by Public Health Scotland. As you will all be aware changes will come into force Monday 19th July 2021 as part of the Government continuing easing of COVID restriction.
The First Minister announced on Tuesday, “That means that while Scotland will move to level 0 from next Monday, we will do so with certain modifications to our original indicative plans. This is intended to ensure that our pace of easing restrictions is sensible in light of the challenge we continue to face from the Delta variant. The Scottish Government understands, I understand, the temptation to lift more restrictions more quickly – of course, we understand that. But in our view, and in line with clinical advice and modeling, a gradual approach stands the best chance of minimising further health harm and loss of life and also because a gradual approach stands the best chance of being a sustainable approach, it will be better in the long term for the economy as well. So we will continue to ease restrictions, we are not slamming on the breaks, but we will do so carefully.”
The mainland areas will not move to the lowest level zero restrictions until 19 July. Then the hope is that the remaining rules will be lifted on 9 August.
Changes to Covid restrictions will come into effect from Monday 19th July. Boxing Scotland will continue to monitor the current situation and update guidance and advise the membership when these changes happen.
Please continue to follow the last guidance issued which is version 20 link can be found below which has not changed.
Please continue to familiarise yourself with the Guidance document. So that their respective clubs continue following the guidance ensuring that clubs and gyms remain a safe environment for individuals to participate in physical activity. Therefore, we kindly ask that you take the time to familiarise yourself with our updated guidance document. Updates are in red highlighted in Yellow.
If you have any further questions please don’t hesitate to contact your Regional Club Development Officer.
