The threat of COVID-19 is still present, and although it is reduced at this time, it’s important to remind members of the ways they can further minimise the risks of COVID affecting games.

We fully understand that access to testing is not as readily available as it once was but the principle of not playing if you are unwell is still important, even if the illness is not COVID-19.
There are other important strategies that people can use to reduce potential COVID disruption:
We will continue to monitor the COVID situation across the country and will take advice from the UK Government if the situation changes.
Regardless of the current situation, we would warn clubs that whilst the numbers of COVID infections are falling since a rise in the early summer, there may be another increase as schools and sport return this Autumn.
