The government on 21st March 2022 removed remaining domestic restrictions in England. However here are some steps you can take both Future Cheer and government recommend to help reduce the risk of catching and spreading COVID-19:
- Get Vaccinated
- Let fresh air in when meeting indoors
- Practice good hygiene, by washing hands, covering your coughs and sneezes, clean your surroundings frequently
- Wear a face covering or a face mask
In the future and should the government feel the need to tighten the COVID-19 restrictions again, Future Cheer working with the venues will move back to the following controls to help keep everyone safe and well.
Future Cheer events for the rest of the 2022 season will be going ahead as published. However, some changes may be needed to the event or schedule as well as some logistical changes as we run up to each event. Any of these changes will be communicated directly to registered team coaches and Gym owners. It is therefore very important that the teams contact details are checked and updated if needed. The following checks and changes include, but are not limited to the following:
- Step 1. A 14 day prior to event, COVID-19 team and spectator check by the coach or Gym owner and then record the results on the registration system.
- Step 2. A 36 hour prior to event COVID-19 team and spectator check by the coach or Gym owner which will either be symptoms check or Lateral Flow Tests and a record the results on the registration system.
- The mandatory use of face masks and coverings by all, unless exempt, whilst at the competition and inside venue.
- The event and competition will be divided up into sessions on competition day.
- A limit on the number of teams attending the event and or spectator tickets being made available for the competition.
- A one-way system being implemented for all athletes, coaches, and spectators inside the Venue.
- Signs and advise on regular hand washing and keeping 2 meters apart.
- Asking all at the event to remain seated during the event when possible and particularly during the awards.
- The Awards being broadcast virtual rather than live on a internet platform like YouTube.
- Asking if your team have performed and their awards have been completed a request to leave the venue if they are happy to do so.
- For anyone feeling unwell at the event the request for a Lateral Flow Test to be taken at the event.
- The option to eject anyone from the event should object to any of the above COVID-19 safeguarding measures above
Our events and competitions will only ever go ahead, if allowed, by following the Government COVID-19 Guidelines which can be found on their website
Ultimately, we are trying hard to do everything we can to prevent the spread of this virus and still provide a safe, fun competition with your help!
