Last Thursday the UK Government announced the latest guidance on their Return to Recreational Sport Framework.
Since then the Provincial Council of Britain GAA, has been working with relevant partners to gather the information required to enable us to draw up the the relevant reports, action plans, guidance and risk assessments that will form part of our submission to the Government for review as part of the Framework process. We want as much as anyone to get back to play as soon as possible.
Our plans and guidance need to be approved by the government, confirmation of which needs to be formally communicated to us and at such time those plans and guidance will then be linked on the GOV.UK website. Only then will we be allowed any form of return to full contact activity.
Until such time we remain at Phase 3 of the Safe Return to GAA Activity road map that was communicated to all units on June 24th.
A reminder of what that currently includes:
Adhering to limits on outdoor gatherings permitted by the relevant national legislation – at present that number is 30 in England and Wales and 50 in Scotland
Non contact, respecting social distance, activities/training.
Sharing of equipment to be minimised and risk managed.
