Carmarthenshire Land Sailing Club COVID-19 Compliance Policy & Risk Assessment
Version 1 – 13th June, 2020
You must read all the statement and agree at the bottom
The Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic has caused a global lockdown resulting in restrictions in movement from our homes, temporary closure of the area’s we used for our sport and social distance measures that has prevented large gatherings and how we interact with each other.
As we navigate the reopening of land sailing it is clear that for now, we cannot go back to how it was and must follow government guide lines at all times.
In this document we are specifically addressing the risk associated with the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) within our own social group and into the public domain.
COVID-19 is spread in minute water droplets that are expelled from the body through sneezing, coughing, talking and breathing. The virus can also be transferred to the hands and from there, to other surfaces, where it can survive for a period after transfer. The virus can be spread from person to person.
The symptoms and diagnosis of Coronavirus (COVID-19) have been well publicised over the recent months, so everyone should have clear understanding of the main symptoms i.e. a new continuous cough and high temperature. Although numerous other symptoms have been identified that potentially could be experienced.
Coronavirus (COVID-19) can be asymptomatic (no symptoms), mild or severe/critical, and whilst many people survive the infection, some may die from the virus, so this is a significant hazard that we have to protect against.
Who is at risk?
Those at specific risk
Clinically extremely vulnerable groups (who have received a letter from the Chief Medical Officer) are deemed to be at high risk.
This may include:
We would therefore recommend any of the above people continue to shield for as long as they are advised by the government and do not attend our social events to maintain protection for themselves.
How we can prevent/reduce the spread of COVID-19?
We must consider what needs to be done to prevent or generally help reduce the spread of COVID-19. Eliminating the hazard in totality is the best way to prevent the spreading of COVID-19, but this is may not be possible until, for example, a suitable vaccine is developed on a global scale, so that we all are immune to it. Therefore, it is imperative that we consider other approaches and controls to help reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19.
