To SBCC members – South Bank Cricket Club gives the following advice to users of the cricket nets for training during the Covid-19 Pandemic
We explicable note that SBCC members should follow Government guidance on social distancing and the use of public transport and particularly regarding those in vulnerable groups or within households that have vulnerable people or persons;
We wish to additionally NOTE the following government guidance in relation to attending SBCC nets at Turney Road.
Any such flouting of government and indeed our local rules and guidelines will mean that individuals will not be allowed to attend subsequent training or net sessions and may have their membership revoked.
Try to NOT use public transport when attending practice nets, i.e. walk or cycle. We do not want to put an extra burden on the public transport systems and also increase rates of infections. Where possible use face coverings.
ONLY meet the designated 1 person per day in a public outdoor space and in addition maintain the 2 metre social distancing rules at all times.
DO NOT go out or attend the SBCC practice nets if you display any of the associated symptoms of the coronavirus and indeed self isolate.
DO NOT attend the SBCC nets if you have been in proximity to anyone who has tested positive for the coronavirus in the past 14 days
DO NOT ATTEND the SBCC nets if you have in your household anyone who is deemed vulnerable under the government guidelines. In short, but please see guidance, anyone within your household who has an underlying illness or condition that may increase the risk of hospitalisation and indeed death with contraction of coronavirus particularly covid-19.
