Self-isolate & do not row if:
- you are “shielding”
- you have any symptoms of coronavirus (a high temperature, a new, continuous cough or a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste)
- you've tested positive for coronavirus – this means you have coronavirus
- you live with someone who has symptoms or has tested positive
- someone in your support bubble has symptoms or has tested positive
If you have either had Covid 19 or have been self isolating, please follow the national guidelines (including consulting your general practitioner if required) before returning to rowing.
In practice this means:
- Change into & out of rowing clothing at home
- Use toilet facilities ONLY at the RWBSWC so:
- no showering
- don’t enter the clubhouse proper
- Maintain social distancing at all times
- Cox to wear facemask if stroke from different household/bubble
- Only one crew at a time to handle a boat
- Each crew member to stay at their position and only handle their own oar
- When beaching, leave oars in rowlocks to avoid passing oars to others
- Put your own oar away after sanitising
- Board the boat at the individual position ie stroke to enter at stroke position & no travelling up & down the boat
- No changes of position during a session except:
- Cox & stroke can change position if from same household/bubble
- Each rower to disinfect their own equipment & station with saniwipes before & following use.
Your personal details will be used to track and trace any potential outbreaks so you must register to row. Should a known or suspected Coronavirus case occur in the training or play environment, or an individual be identified as a contact of a known case, the individual/s in question should immediately self-isolate (as well as their household), follow the Welsh Government’s self-isolation guidelines and apply for a Coronavirus test. The designated medical officer of the WSR should be immediately informed if not involved with identifying and isolating the case at the training venue.
The individual affected and anyone they may have come into close contact with in the training or play environment should be reminded of the actions they should take as part of the Welsh Government’s Test, Trace, Protect strategy, designed to enhance health surveillance in the community, undertake effective and extensive contact tracing, and support people to self-isolate where required to do so. Test, Trace, Protect will mean asking people to report symptoms, testing anyone in the community who is showing symptoms of Coronavirus, and tracing those they have come into close contact with.
