Frequently Asked questions regarding COVID 19 and training

What are the safeguards being used by the club?

We ask swimmers to:-

  • Where a face covering to/from training
  • We have hand sanitizer on entry to centres
  • We have implemented a strict one way system
  • Arrive beach ready for the session
  • Respect social distancing rules at all times
  • Stay away from the pool if they show any symptoms of COVID19

What is the protocol if somebody within a bubble/lane shows Covid-19 symptoms?

If a person in a ‘bubble/lane’ shows symptoms related to Covid-19 they are asked to remove themselves from the session and go for a test. They will need to stay away from the session until the results of that test are known. The others swimmers in the lane can continue to swim until the results are known. If it is positive the entire lane will then isolate for 14 days. If negative the swimmer will return.

What is the protocol for informing club members if someone within a squad tests positive for Covid-19?

It’s the responsibility of individuals/parents to contact Track and Trace and provide them with details of any people they have been in contact with at less than 2 metres for more than 15 minutes. The club is responsible for keeping a record of all attendees at sessions and these details should be provided to Track and Trace upon request if the subject is unable to provide these themselves.

I have received my test results back and they are ‘inconclusive’, what should I do?

If you had a test because you had symptoms, you must keep self-isolating and have another test within 5 days of your symptoms starting.

If you had a test but have not had any symptoms, you do not need to self-isolate while you wait to get another test.

Can I return to training if I’ve been on holiday abroad?

Government guidelines should be followed at all times with regards to any quarantine regulations following a holiday abroad. A list of countries exempt from quarantine requirements can be found on the Government website.
