With the season now up and running clubs will soon be receiving members from other clubs so I am writing (on behalf of the Executive Committee) to remind clubs relating to Track & Trace.
It is STONGLY RECOMMENDED that clubs have a procedure in place to record all people who visit their club each day whether they are their own members or members of other clubs.
It is the home clubs responsibility to ensure that when they have members of a visiting club playing on their green they obtain the names and contact numbers of those members. Ideally the visiting club could have this information available when they get to the club and pass it to the home club. The home club should then retain this information for 21 days.
Please see below the information taken from the Bowls England “Return to Play” STEP 2 which outlines the regulations.
What are the test and trace regulations?
Clubs should display an NHS QR code that participants can scan using a mobile device. This is to help trace and stop the spread of coronavirus. Alternatively, ensure you maintain a separate log including contact details so that contact tracers can get in touch with people if required. To support NHS Test and Trace, you must hold records for 21 days. This reflects the incubation period for coronavirus, which can be up to 14 days, and an additional seven days to allow time for testing and tracing. Notify the venue operator if possible.
