|Novel coronavirus (COVID-19) guidance|
|TheÂ welfare of all our athletes, coaches, workforce and volunteersÂ is of paramount importance.|
This communication isÂ designed to inform, rather than alarm, and contains relevant links to the most up-to-date guidance from theÂ Government and Public Health EnglandÂ regarding novel coronavirus (COVID-19).
The Government has issuedÂ advice around travel to and from certain areasÂ as the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) situation develops.Â Please read the latest advice here. This is updated regularly.
ALL participants, coaches, volunteers and spectatorsÂ precautionsÂ to help reduce the spread of infection, please wash your hands whenÂ you arrive at the leisure centre andÂ before you leave.
For the latest infection control advice,Â please click here.
It is our expectation that Swim England members will comply with the latest Government and NHS guidance.Â This can be found on the Public Health England website. If you feel unwell,Â please call NHS 111 for advice.
Anyone that is showing any of theÂ symptoms wouldÂ would ask that you do not attend the leisure centre or any events andÂ notify usÂ immediately.
Swim England andÂ Barrow ASC will beÂ continuing to plan for our events as normalÂ but we will be following Government guidance and assessing risk as appropriate
Barrow pool uses a UV system for cleaning the water, however chlorine is still added to the water which should kill anyÂ bacteria. The biggest risk for ourÂ swimmers would be in theÂ changing rooms, however if you follow advice and wash hands regular this should lower the risk.
Goggles / Swim Caps – During thisÂ period to lower any risk until further notice we will not allow usage of our spare goggles and swim caps so please make sure your child hasÂ their own at all times. We will keep you informed regarding any disruption to future events / galas that affect our swimmers.
Many thanks for your cooperation.
