Coronavirus

We are closely following Public Health England’s guidance regarding the Coronavirus.  The current guidance does not recommend any suspension of normal activities by the general public but recommends thorough hand washing and use of alcohol-based sanitiser which is being provided in centres – unless people have been to a specific list of affected places/areas when self isolation is required.   The latest guidance can be found here: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/

The welfare of all our athletes, coaches, workforce and volunteers is of paramount importance.

This communication is designed to inform, rather than alarm, and contains relevant links to the most up-to-date guidance from the Government and Public Health England regarding novel coronavirus (COVID-19).

  • The Government has issued advice around travel to and from certain areas as the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) situation develops. Please read the latest advice here. This is updated regularly.
  • We’d like to take this opportunity to remind all clubs running events, training sessions or trips abroad that they must inform participants, coaches, volunteers and spectators of the hygiene precautions to help reduce the spread of infection. For the latest infection control advice, please click here.
  • It is our expectation that Swim England members will comply with the latest Government and NHS guidance. This can be found on the Public Health England website. If you feel unwell, please call NHS 111 for advice.
  • Swim England will be continuing to plan for our events as normal but we will be following Government guidance and assessing risk as appropriate.
  • We will be issuing specific guidance regarding forthcoming Swim England events as necessary to those due to attend.
  • We would advise clubs to also carry out appropriate risk assessments and comply with all Government advice when planning any future activities.
    Many thanks for your cooperation.

The health and wellbeing of all team members is, as always, of paramount importance to us. The following policy is based on the current guidance issued by the Government. Yesterday, they announced an action plan to tackle the spread of the virus.

We’d like to take this opportunity to remind team members of the hygiene precautions to help reduce the spread of infection. For the latest infection control advice, please click here for NHS guidance
