A Covid update from our Chairman
Whilst the world battles to control the Covid pandemic, and considering the new Omicron Variant, Canterbury Rugby Club’s priority remains the health and safety of our members, players, staff, and visitors. We are therefore looking at putting in place a range of recommended safety measures to keep the Marine Travel Ground Covid secure.
Please follow a protocol of Lateral Flow Testing (LFT) prior to training and matches and attending the club. One in three people don’t show symptoms.
If you are attending a pre-match lunch, please carry out an LFT the morning of the lunch, unless you have mitigating reasons such as having had the virus within the last 90 days.
Anyone who wishes to wear a face-covering is as ever free to do so.
Hand sanitiser will be available in clearly signposted locations across club facilities, and we would urge all at the ground to apply it regularly.
Along with social distancing and other safety guidelines, vaccinated members are crucial in helping prevent the spread of the virus. Vaccinated people are less likely to get COVID-19 with symptoms and are less likely to get serious COVID-19. We want to strongly recommend as many players and staff as possible to be vaccinated.
Help us protect our community and keep our rugby family safe.
