Coronavirus Update

The Coronavirus Pandemic is still with us and the case rate is rising throughout the UK again and so we have to recognise that we may experience positive cases within our community. It is therefore important that all club members understand how Dursley Running Club expects to handle these cases. We continue to follow the UK Government legal requirements and guidance as well as our governing body guidance (England Athletics, British Triathlon and Swim England). We gather and hold attendance records for all organised club activity and we will cooperate with the NHS Test & Trace services as required. So what does this mean to club members?
Single positive caseAnyone who has participated in organised club activity and tests positive for Coronavirus must:

  • Self-isolate;
  • Inform NHS Test & Trace of their contacts and;
  • Inform the club.

We will not take further action at this point unless contacted by NHS Test & Trace specifically. 
Multiple positive casesIf we receive more than one notification of a positive case then we will contact our local health protection team as this may indicate an outbreak.
Either an individual case, or multiple positive cases, may result in the need for other club members or participants to self-isolate. If contacted by NHS Test & Trace, or if we need to contact the local health protection team, we will cooperate by providing attendance record details and support them in their assessment of infection risk. If you are required to self-isolate because you have been in contact with someone who has tested positive you must not attend club organised activities until you have completed your 14 day isolation period without symptoms. And it goes without saying, but if you personally have Coronavirus symptoms; new/continuous cough, fever and/or change/loss of smell/taste, you must not attend club activities, you must self-isolate and we would recommend you seek a Covid-19 test. 
The Dursley Running Club Covid-19 Coordinator is Caroline Jones, all Covid-19 risk assessments are on the club website here
