Covid-19 Regulations Update 27/11/20. England & Northern Ireland

England

 

The Government have released updated guidance that comes into effect from 2nd December when local restriction tiers will replace the current National restrictions in England.

 

Based on this guidance, and subject to Parliamentary confirmation, Model Flying Clubs in all Tiers can re-open; however, you are expected to operate in a Covid secure way. See https://clubsupport.bmfa.uk/6-steps-to-covid-secure

 

The rule of 6 also applies in all Tiers and you should not organise gatherings of more than 6 people. However, should more than 6 people independently attend a flying site this does not appear to be a breach of the regulations provided that they do not mingle.

 

Members should avoid travelling in to and out of Tier 3 (Very High Alert) areas.

Guidance for Model Flyers and Individuals involved in Model Flying

 

If you or anyone in your household has any of the symptoms of COVID-19 you must stay at home. The main symptoms are:

- A high temperature.

- A new continuous cough.

- A loss or change to your sense of smell or taste.

You must also stay at home if you have experienced COVID-19 symptoms in the past 14 days, have been diagnosed with COVID-19 in the past 14-days, or have had contact with a known or suspected COVID-19 case.

The effects of the COVID-19 virus are most serious in men over the age of 60, especially those with other underlying health problems.  If you fall into this category, we would urge careful consideration before venturing out and risking any potential exposure to the virus, however small the risk may be.

Only travel to the flying site on your own or with members of your household.

Only travel based on what is permitted by current government guidelines.

On arrival and departure ensure you register with the club’s track and trace process.

At the flying site only mix with members of your household or up to 5 people outside your household but stick to social distancing guidelines.

Do not mix with any other individuals present outside of your group of 6 (bubble) at any time.

Always carry and use hand sanitiser as part of your model flying equipment.

Use hand sanitiser before and after making contact with any shared surfaces or equipment.

Consider when the use of face masks for added protection is appropriate.

If you become ill with any of the recognised COVID-19 symptoms (while onsite or within 10 days afterwards) contact your club track and trace co-ordinator immediately.

We remain in the midst of a pandemic.  The situation is dynamic and current Government advice must be followed.

 

If in any doubt, please stay at home!
