In his recent announcement, the Prime Minister said that the Coronavirus is on the increase, which is why further restrictions have been put in place to help mitigate and reduce the risk of infection.
The NHS Track & Trace App was made available on Thursday 24th September and within the first 24 hours of its availability, over one million users downloaded the UK Governments contact tracing app. For any individual who has downloaded the app, the app instructs them to self-isloate if they have come into contact with anyone who has the virus.
Event Organisers are encouraged to create a Coronavirus NHS QR Code for their venue and the link below gives details how to do this.
ACU Chairman Roy Humphrey commented, “Over the last couple of weeks, I think we were all of the impression that tighter controls and restrictions would be put in place because the infection rate was and is on the increase. I am a great advocate in helping and reducing the impact on the NHS who have done a brilliant job in the last six months or so, and anything the ACU and/or its Organisers can do to help is a good thing. The NHS Track & Trace App is easy for individuals to follow and Organisers elected to create a QR Code at their venue, again this is another control measure to combat the virus”.
Everyone is reminded to adhere to the ‘Rule of Six’. When at an event, awnings / work areas must not exceed six people. Individuals should be mindful to maintain social distancing measures in accordance with current UK Government/devolved nation/Crown Dependent rules/guidance and in the case of England, maintain social distancing from those who are not from the same household. Everyone should be in possession of face coverings and face coverings should be worn when visiting toilet facilities, when purchasing food and beverages from food outlets or when visiting the Race Administration/ Technical/Race Control/other public areas.
