Yesterday the Prime Minister outlined the latest Government advice in relation to the coronavirus pandemic.
In response to this we have updated our communication and advice sent out yesterday.
The club is still open and we ask that you take into consideration your own personal circumstances when using the club in the coming weeks. We will continue to monitor the day-to-day situation and may need to maintain a strong offering across the club but on a reduced scale to reflect usage trends.
We ask that as a club community we all come together and do our best to limit the risk of spreading the disease within the club. We have introduced the following measures; we would ask members not to put others at risk.
If you or any member of your household have a new cough or fever over 37.8 centigrade please stay away from the club for 14 days
If you are exposed to somebody who has tested positive for COVID 19, and has not been given the all clear, or they are self-isolating within the same household, then please stay away from the club for 14 days.
With such a small community, it is important that we do not cause any distress or panic to others as we along with the rest of the world start to understand the true effects of this global pandemic.
We have already implemented several measures and guidelines across the club.
Where possible all doors will be kept open throughout the club to avoid having to touch doors and handles before and after washing hands
We would like to ask if you can avoid using cash when paying in the club at reception and café bar and where possible use contactless payment method.
Please do not shake hands with anybody whilst at the club
Please wash your hands with soap and hot water for 20 seconds on entering the club
Signage advising to use anti-bacterial gel on entering the gym
Increasing the frequency of cleanings, especially on regularly touched surfaces such as doors, counter tops and furniture.
Increased checks and restocking of soap, tissue and toilet roll dispensers.
Advised all members to bring a towel to cover exercise mats and machines when perspiring.
We have stocks of anti-bacterial gel and ask you to use this sensibly
When coughing or sneezing please cough into a tissue or your sleeve. Please dispose of the tissue if used straight away and wash your hands.
Please ensure that you comply with the requests above and follow all government and NHS advice to help us try to restrict the spread of this virus and to protect your fellow Members, visitors and staff.
ILTSC will continue to take its lead from the government and public health authorities and will continue to take practical and necessary steps to ensure the health and wellbeing of Members, visitors and staff.
