Update to Guidance Following the Government Announcement of 22 September 2020
As a result of yesterday’s update from the Government regarding new restrictions it is important to reiterate and bring to the attention of our individual members and member shooting grounds/clubs the following, which remain in place or are now to be added to your practices. These apply whether organising or attending registered shoots, open shoots or pay & play. Following all guidelines will help ensure our sport can continue to take place in these unprecedented and difficult times.
We need to remind you that groups/squads must be no more than 6 shooters. Referees can caddie a squad of 5 and move around the course with the squad or a squad can be 6 if a referee can remain socially distanced from them at the stand etc.
- It remains important to follow Covid-19 secure guidance with the 2 metre social distancing or 1 metre+ with appropriate measure in place and being followed.
- Clubhouses, cafes and restaurants must only allow groups of no more than 6. If your premises are licenced, food and drink must be ordered from, and served at a table.
- It is not permissible for visitors or groups to mingle with others outside of their own group.
- Visitors and employees in retail shops, cafes, shoot administration, booking-in desks etc. must all wear face coverings, while inside any enclosed area.
- It is compulsory that clubs and grounds take details of visitors for 'Track & Trace' and display the Track & Trace QR Poster for your business or venue. Click here for details of how to create it for your business/ground/club.
- Individuals will need to download and install the new Contact Tracing App from either the Androids Google Play or Apple's App store to use the QR code poster.
- Remember it is important to avoid any social gatherings of more than 6, anywhere on the shooting ground.
- Larger fines are now in place for any rules that are broken and can be up to £10,000.
We need to remind you that the Government is allowing our sport to continue to take place as long as everyone follows the sport’s national governing body (CPSA) Covid-19 Secure Guidelines. Failure to follow these could jeopardise our sport and risk potential action by local or national authorities.
