This guidance is updated for the move to Step 4 of the UK Government Road Map which comes into effect on 19 July 2021.
On Monday 19th July, England will move to step four of its roadmap in easing Covid restrictions. This means that almost all legal restrictions of social contact will be removed. However, the Government is encouraging people to act with caution.
The summary key points are:
1. Social distancing (1 m+) rule is removed
2. Group size restrictions indoors and outdoors are removed (including spectator number restrictions)
3. Face coverings are no longer required by law, but are recommended in crowded indoor settings and may be mandated by some organisations.
4. Remember No Participants = No Game. NHS Test and Trace is still in place and self-isolation of both COVID positive individuals and close contacts remains a requirement. The definition of close contact remains the same, however the rules on self-solation will be changing from the 16th August.
5. Changing rooms can be used, however participants should use their own judgement and minimise use where possible to avoid close contact in a crowded area for a prolonged time.
6. Hospitality is permitted without restrictions.
7. NHS Test and Trace QR codes not required by law but encouraged.
8. Free NHS lateral flow testing is available to clubs and The ECB encourages clubs to take this up.
9. No domestic travel restrictions. Participants should continue to follow Government advice on international travel for any fixtures/ tournaments.
Use this service to create a QR code for display at your cricket club. Get visitors to scan the QR code when they arrive, using the NHS COVID-19 app. This is to help trace and stop the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).
If you have more than one venue, you need to create a separate QR code for each location. You can add multiple locations in the service.
