Summer term: Back with a splash

The gradual easing of lockdown means our programme is now back up and running. But the safety measures we had in place previously are in force again. Here's a recap of the main points:

 

  • Entry and exit of the building via the main entrance.
  • Use the internal one-way systems, directions and routes as detailed in our entry/exit procedures document below.
  • Divers to come with swimming kit on underneath their clothes.
  • Changing facilities allowed after classes only.
  • Numbers capped at six per class to accommodate social distancing around the pool, including the diving boards.
  • Unless exercising it is mandatory to wear a face covering and maintain social distancing inside Guildford Spectrum.
  • Face coverings not required for children (under-11) or anyone who is medically exempt. Click here for all the exemptions.
  • Spectating on our upper pool deck not allowed (except for Covid-19 lead).
  • Parents/guardians can watch 'bird's eye' from the spectator gallery on the upper level overlooking the competition pool.
  • If you have any coronavirus-like symptoms stay away, get them checked out and do not return to training until you get an all-clear.

Lockdown easing: Stay local

The easing of lockdown means that we are now reopen, back in the pool and training again.

 

However, the message from the UK government is to stay local, protect the NHS, save lives.

 

In the House of Commons on Monday 22 February, the prime minister delivered a roadmap for lifting lockdown and the gradual easing of restrictions.

 

  • March 8: Primary and secondary schools reopen in England.
  • March 29: Government's 'stay at home' order changes to 'stay local'. Outdoor sport can resume for all ages.
  • April 12: Indoor gyms, leisure centres and swimming pools to reopen. Children (under-18s) can return to indoor club activities.
  • May 17: Adults (18+) allowed to return in mixed groups for indoor sport.
  • June 21: All remaining restrictions due to end.

 

  • June 14: Government announces four-week delay to ending restrictions.
  • July 19: Expected date for restrictions to end. A so-called 'terminus point', according to the prime minister.

 

Dates depend ultimately on the effectiveness of the vaccination programme and government data continuing to show a downward trend in Covid cases, infection levels and hospitalisations.
