Cricket Scotland – COVID-19 information update for clubs

Please see most recent COVID-19 guidance provided by Cricket Scotland:

Dear Clubs

Following today’s Scottish Government announcement, updated guidance has been published for entering into Level 3 on Monday 26th April – these can be found on the Cricket Scotland COVID-19 page, here.

Additionally, a route map for changes within the various Scottish Government protection levels has been attached.

Key changes from Monday 26th are:

  • Adult and junior club fixtures can now take place between two clubs (maximum bubble of 30).
  • Travel is permitted between all Level 3 areas. In Level 3, players travelling to and from the venue must not mix household, i.e. no car sharing (please note this restriction changes in Level 2).

A few other points to remind club officials and members are:

  • Clubs should appoint a COVID Officer and ensure that a nominated COVID Monitor is present at the club when there is cricket activity – this can be a coach, team captain or parent. We would recommend that all COVID Monitors complete the sportscotland online module which is available here.
  • During club fixtures, a register of all attendees including umpires and scorers should be maintained and administered by the home COVID Monitor.
  • No spectators are permitted except for parents or guardians of vulnerable adults – this may be relaxed as we enter into Level 2.  Any parents or guardians attending must adhere to physical distancing.
  • Off the field, teams must not congregate together at any time.
  • Changing rooms must remain closed. Toilets can be open.

As always, the above is subject to any changes in guidance from the Scottish Government and your club, facility and members must be made aware of, and able to adapt to, changes in guidance at short notice; for example, a local lockdown.

All of us at Cricket Scotland are looking forward to the start of the season – thanks for your continuing patience and adherence to restrictions. Enjoy your cricket and stay safe.
