Q. What do we do if someone from our team tests positive following a game/session a few days ago?
A. Track and trace should contact the positive individual to identify those in close contact. This is not your clubs responsibility. Track and trace will identify those in close contact and will communicate with those individuals directly. There are some things you could do out of courtesy:
- With the permission of the positively tested individual, courtesy call those thought to have been in close contact prior to Track and Trace contact. This will prepare those who may be in close contact for Track and Trace communication. The individual who tested positive should not be identified.
- According to the GOV.UK website, close contact typically means spending more than 15 minutes within two metres of the person who tested positive.
- Check people are healthy and have support where required.
- You could send reminders to your individuals to lateral flow test regularly especially in the run into and following games/sessions. Scottish Government advises everyone to Lateral Flow Test twice per week.
Q: Can adults and u18’s train together.
A: Yes as long as it is in an organised session following Covid-19 coaching guidelines.
Q: Can we register new players.
A: Yes you can register any new members until the 31st of October, this can be done, free of charge, by emailing email@example.com with their name, gender, DOB, email, home address and phone number.
Q: If someone comes to a club session and they have to self-isolate after testing positive the next day, do the rest of the people at the session need to self-isolate?
A: That is down to test and protect to get in touch with each person. If they’ve come into contact with someone who has had a positive test, the NHS should follow up with the contacts.
Q: Where can i find the Covid Officer training?
A: Covid Officer training can be found here
Q: How long do I need to keep the session register for Track and Trace.
A: Information should be recorded digitally if possible, but a paper record is acceptable too. Writing contact details in a book or register and destroying these safely when the 21 day retention period is over is acceptable so long as the register is kept out of public sight and stored securely. Similarly, digital records must be securely deleted at the end of the 21 day retention period. The Covid Officer needs to be identified and appropriately trained for this. To minimise the risk of virus transmission during this process, any written information should be noted by a designated member of staff/volunteer and not by each individual or group.
