Hallamshire Update 19th July - back to normal(ish)

 

Dear Members,

The remaining restrictions in the government’s roadmap are being lifted on Monday 19th July.  For the Hallamshire this means:

BAR

  • Hallamshire bar service will resume as normal. You will need to approach the bar for service and you will be able to sit in certain areas of the bar area.

  • Any number of people can sit together or stand in the bar area.

SQUASH

  • All courts will be open as before the pandemic.

TENNIS

  • There are no alterations to the current situation as most restrictions have already been lifted.

GYM & CHANGING ROOMS

  • The sauna will reopen from Monday 19th July.

  • The gym will continue with a booking system to enable us to monitor the number of users. There will be no limit on the time you can be in the gym, and you can book in as you enter the Hallamshire.  We require members to continue to clean the equipment down before and after its use.

 

GENERAL

  • The temperature checking system will be removed from reception.

  • Perspex screens will remain in place at reception and the bar. This is to continue to protect the operational processes of the club. 

  • The club will remain as a cashless business at this time and will only be accepting card or contactless payment methods.

  • The one way system will be removed from Monday 19th July.

  • Masks are no longer mandatory, but we do advise they be worn where possible.

Notice from the Government

Lifting restrictions does not mean that the risks from COVID-19 have disappeared. Instead it marks a new phase in the Government’s response to the pandemic during which people need to manage the risks to themselves and others as the country learns to live with the virus. Building on the updated guidance on meeting friends and family, announced as part of step 3, the Government will provide advisory guidance on how people can manage the risks to themselves and to others. It sets out how the following behaviours are beneficial:

  1. Meeting in well-ventilated areas where possible, such as outdoors or indoors with windows open.

  2. Wearing a face covering where you come into contact with people you don’t normally meet in enclosed and crowded spaces.

  3. Washing your hands with soap and water or using hand sanitiser regularly throughout the day.

  4. Covering your nose and mouth when you cough and sneeze.

  5. Staying at home if unwell, to reduce the risk of passing on other illnesses onto friends, family, colleagues, and others in your community.

  6. Considering individual risks, such as clinical vulnerabilities and vaccination status.

 

Club Operations

We shall endeavour to provide the best service we can over the coming weeks while the number of covid cases continues to increase.  Self-isolation for 10 days still applies to individuals identified as posing a risk to others by either testing positive for covid or being in close contact to someone with covid, even those who have been double vaccinated.

Precautions are being taken to help avoid any need to alter opening hours or close the club.

In the event that there is a need to alter the timings of the clubs operations or close the club, we shall contact members immediately and all bookings will be refunded.  We hope we shan’t need to take such actions, but as the cases continue to rise the possibility has not gone away.

Stay protected.

Best wishes,

The Hallamshire Team
