Royal Wootton Bassett Town have published an updated version of its Covid-19 Risk Assessment and Method Statement (RAMS).
The updated document covers procedures that allow for Track and Trace to be conducted using the NHS App at the Gerard Buxton Sports Ground, as well as rules regarding the use of the stadium pitch changing rooms.
It is vital that these procedures are adhered to for the sake of all our members, opposing teams, their families and the wider local community. Football activities will continue to take place according to The FA and Government guidelines.
The RAMS document can be found here.
It is essential that all coaches, players, parents/guardians/carers and supporters take time to read this document. No coach or player must attend any training session or take part in a match unless they have read and understood the controls that are required. It is also necessary for coaches, players and parents/guardians/carers to have signed the RAMS form.
The RAMS document includes vital information, which outlines:
Control measures will be monitored and audited on a regular basis.
Within the updated RAMS, notable changes include:
Any visitors to the Gerard Buxton Sports Ground are required to complete Track and Trace. This can now be done via the NHS Covid Contact Tracing App by scanning the QR code below (included below).
Those who are unable to register their attendance using the NHS App must do so by providing contact details upon their entry to the ground. Details will be stored for 21 days before being destroyed. Those refusing to provide details will be refused entry.
The Football Club and Sports Association are independent, so those attending may need to register twice.
Use of the stadium changing room is allowed - but with strict controls. Face masks must be worn by all and only two people can use the shower at the same time. This applies to both home and away teams as well as match officials.
Face masks or shields must now be worn inside the buildings at the Gerard Buxton Sports Ground (unless individuals have a relevant medical exemption). These may be taken off while seated and drinking in the clubhouse area.
If you feel anything has not been sufficiently covered within the updated RAMS, and if there is anything you are unsure about, please contact Covid-19 Officer Paul Gerrish by email.Last modified on Monday 19th October 2020 at 21:36.
