Coronavirus Update

Guidance for Satellites

As you will all be aware, the current coronavirus outbreak which leads to the corvid-19 respiratory disease is an ongoing concern. As a club, Satellites are keeping abreast of the situation and for now training is continuing as normal. As and when events unfold we will keep you informed as to how the club will adapt to meet the situation.

For now, please have a read of the official Swim England guidance and follow these simple guidelines:

  • Please shower before and after training.
  • Be sure to wash your hands thoroughly with soap.
  • Avoid touching your face (as much as possible).
  • No squirting each other with water bottles.
  • If you have a cough or a fever, please follow current government advice and stay at home for at least 7 days.
  • If you become symptomatic within 7 days of having been to training, please inform the Club Welfare Officer in confidence.

In general, there is no need to avoid swimming at present. Chlorine and soap are effective at killing the virus but please do follow the guidelines and exercise common sense precautions to slow the spread. Even if you personally are not at high risk of the effects of covid-19, there may well be other swimmers or their families that are. Slowing the spread helps keep the peak number of infections at any given time within the limits that the health services can cope with.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

Satellites Committee
