Advice on Coronavirus (COVID-19)
Please visit our club information page www.welshgymnastics.org/coronavirus
The UK Government has recently published its action plan on containing the possible spread of the coronavirus.
We have recently received calls from members on the subject and so we have set out below our advice and some recommendations based on what has been published by the Government and the NHS.
Preventing the spread of COVID-19
As with any other illness, all those involved in gymnastics in the UK are encouraged to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and avoid catching it by following Public Health Wales and NHS guidance.
Information on how to do this is provided on the NHS website with additional information available on the Public Health Wales.
For clubs and partners offering community and leisure services, we support the Government advice that hand hygiene should be strongly promoted and encouraged, and equipment and facilities should be thoroughly cleaned and wiped down as usual following use. Materials including posters for Public Health Wales' campaign to help stop the spread of viruses can be downloaded from their resources website.
Below are some more resources from the NHS that be useful to print and display at clubs and share with other members.
Welsh Gymnastics Events
We do not currently plan to postpone or cancel competitions or events, but we are regularly reviewing government advice and liaising with the venue operators.
If your club is hosting a competition or festival in the near future, we would advise you follow the guidance set out by the UK Government.
Please note: This page will be updated if any of our guidance changes or more information becomes available.
