Users and Hirers of Sturfit have a responsibility for managing their own groups as a whole and adhering to the current guidelines relevant to their specific activity or sector.

Clubs and classes may return to their long term booked slots if the following is maintained:

  • Participant numbers in the club or class must allow for social distancing according to the latest government guidance.
  • Club or class leaders show their participants into the session area, ensuring that social distance is maintained, hands are washed or sanitised before and after the session,
  • All participants arrive dressed ready for the activity, as changing rooms and showers will be closed.
  • Participants must bring their own drinks bottles/containers, they can refill water from the water station, but this must be cleaned after use.
  • Club or class leaders need to take steps to avoid people needing to unduly raise their voices to each other.  Refrain from playing music that may encourage shouting. This is because of the potential for increased risk of transmission – particularly from aerosol and droplet transmission.
  • There is to be no hanging around in the reception area, once the Session has finished, participants will be shown where to exit the building and must do so immediately.
  • Club or class leaders must ensure that they are recording the necessary details for each session in line with NHS Track and Trace.
