As part of the phased return to football following the easing of the latest coronavirus lockdown, Consett AFC has been required to prepare a detailed risk assessment for anyone using Belle View Stadium.
A great deal of work has taken place prior to the easing of restrictions to make everyone visiting the facility as safe as possible.
From 29 March 2021 organised sport is allowed to recommence, though no spectators are allowed to be present, except for carers for people with disabilities, or adults needed to supervise under-18s in a safeguarding role.
Inside the stadium, people should remain socially distanced, gather in groups of no more than six, and spread out, in line with wider government guidance.
Hand sanitising is available at several sanitisation stations, and touch-points are regularly cleansed.
No food or drink will be available and the clubhouse will not be open. Dressing rooms cannot be used, so participants should arrive changed. Toilets will be open, and should be used on a one-in, one-out basis. Regular hand-washing is encouraged.
The club’s full risk assessment, prepared on 19 July, 2020, updated on 19 August 2020, and updated again on 25 March 2021, by our Covid-19 officer, chairman Frank Bell, is available to view HERE.
PLEASE DO YOUR BIT TO STOP THE SPREAD OF COVID-19 BY SOCIALLY DISTANCING AND FOLLOWING THE LATEST GOVERNMENT GUIDELINES.
