Covid - 19 - Guidance for Club Members

1. If you or anyone in your household has any of the symptoms of COVID-19 you must stay at home. The main symptoms are: - A high temperature. - A new continuous cough. - A loss or change to your sense of smell or taste.

2. You must also stay at home if you have experienced COVID-19 symptoms in the past 14 days, have been diagnosed with COVID-19 in the past 14-days, or have had contact with a known or suspected COVID-19 case.

3. The effects of the COVID-19 virus are most serious in men over the age of 60, especially those with other underlying health problems. If you fall into this category, we would urge careful consideration before venturing out and risking any potential exposure to the virus, however small the risk may be.
