Covid-19 Measures

What are we doing to ensure your safety?

What’s new for 2020-21?

Like always, we are taking safety at our event seriously. After careful consideration during the off season regarding the current Covid-19 pandemic, our team have implemented the following measures to promote the health and wellbeing of competitors, officials, volunteers and staff.

We created these measures by:

  1. Seeking advice from local authorities and National Governing Bodies regarding the current Covid-19 restrictions and recommendations
  2. Collaboration with the host venues
  3. Following of Government and NHS advice
  4. Consultation with BUCS Chief Medical Officer

New Measures: 

  1. Event Disclaimer updated to include specifics around Covid-19
  2. New event format to enforce all safety protocols such as social distancing with NGB guidance
  3. Covid-19 questionnaire completed 24 hours in advance of the event.
  4. We will be operating on a restricted access policy and no spectators are permitted
  5. Unfortunately, no presentations will take place and all medals will be posted to you after the event
  6. Competitors must depart promptly after competition finishes – no hanging around post event

What’s expected of competitors:

  1. Event competitors should stay home if they have any Covid-19 symptoms, live in the same household with someone with Covid-19 symptoms or have been diagnosed with, or suspected to have, Covid-19 in the past 14 days.
  2. Competitors must follow direction from BUCS staff
  3. Competitors must complete Covid-19 questionnaire before competing
  4. Competitors should always follow social distancing guidance
  5. Competitors should ensure they are following hand hygiene practices at all times
  6. Competitors should wear a face covering when indoors. If the venue has not made it compulsory we would encourage/recommend that you wear one when moving about the building.
  7. Competitors should not share equipment at this time unless permitted within NGB guidance.
  8. Follow the guidance and safety procedures outlined for the event you are attending. These can be found in the Event Guide.
  9. Competitors are expected to follow government guidance when attending an event including but not limited to guidance around travel and accommodation. This guidance should be considered prior to entry.

Despite all these extra measures we have implemented, it is impossible to fully remove all risk.
Please carefully consider your options and make sure you are completely comfortable with the risks involved, before attending this event.
