Royal Wootton Bassett Town have published an updated version of its Covid-19 Risk Assessment and Method Statement (RAMS).
The updated document covers guidance issued in relation to the resumption of football activities allowed from Monday 29 March, in line with step one of the government's roadmap.
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, including:
Control measures will be monitored and audited on a regular basis.
Within the updated RAMS, notable changes include:
As part of stage one of the government's roadmap, NO spectators are allowed to attend either training sessions or games at the Gerard Buxton Sports Ground.
For training and games involving teams in the club's youth section, only one parent, guardian or carer per child is permitted to attend. This is for safeguarding purposes.
Those who do attend for safeguarding purposes must maintain social distancing from others at all times and not mix with others from separate households.
All other parents, guardians and carers should remain either within their cars at the facility or not travel to the Gerard Buxton Sports Ground.
Changing rooms cannot be used as part of step one of the government's roadmap. Use of the changing rooms at the Gerard Buxton Sports Ground is therefore NOT permitted.
The only circumstances in which it will be possible to use changing rooms is for safeguarding purposes or for disability requirements.
Further to this, at the present time the clubhouse facilities at the Gerard Buxton Sports Ground will remain closed.
All participants and their parents, guardians or carers should follow government guidance on safe travel to and from the Gerard Buxton Sports Ground (and other venues where football activities may be taking place).
Any visitors to the Gerard Buxton Sports Ground are reminded that they are required to complete Track and Trace. This can be done via the NHS Covid Contact Tracing App by scanning the QR code 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.
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 Saturday 27th March 2021 at 14:20.
