Covid-19

From 24th April six people from separate households can meet up outdoors. Club members can therefore organise walks and climbing events for up to six people in the normal way through the Forum. If you want to advertise your event in advance please email the details to the Walks Co-ordinator (Jane Kenney, email - janekenney1@gmail.com). These events need to follow Welsh Government guidance for people meeting outdoors, e.g. social distancing, but do not require any special regulations.

Organised Outdoor Activities
As from 26 April 2021, Welsh Government regulations will allow organised outdoor activities (organised events), whereby up to 30 people can meet outdoors. To be an organised event the following procedures must be followed. These procedures are based on the BMC COVID guidelines and Welsh Government regulations.

COVID Officer
The club has appointed a COVID Officer, to draw up club COVID procedures in line with
regulations and to oversee their implementation. The responsibilities of the COVID officer are detailed in document COVID Officer Responsibilities.

The Club COVID Officer is:-
Jane Kenney, contact: email janekenney1@gmail.com, phone: 07578 168605

Meet organisers
Any club member may organise a club meet, but must follow the instructions given in document Instructions for Meet Organisers.

Print out or copy onto your phone the below documents for a short COVID briefing on the day of the event.

Self-declaration by participants
All participants at club meets must read and agree to the self declaration given in document Self Declaration by Participants of Organised Meets.

Risk assessment
A risk assessment has been completed for organised meets. This assesses the risk of catching COVID-19 at organised meets, and details measured taken to minimise the risk. All participants and  particularly the meet organiser must read the risk assessment.
All risk assessments will be retained for 3 years.

Preparation for Incidents
The principle of CMC is that all participants are responsible for looking after each other. The COVID officer, meet organiser or an experienced first aider will take the lead if first aid is required but will not take sole responsibility for first aid. They will carry disposable gloves and goggles as well as a face covering and hand sanitizer, but all participants should carry a face covering and hand sanitizer, and are encouraged to carry disposable gloves as well.
