You will be aware of the ongoing outbreak of COVID-19, also known as Coronavirus. Swim Ireland are adhering to guidance from the Health Protection Surveillance Centre in containing the virus and ensuring a safe environment for athletes and staff.
As one of our measures, we are seeking to identify any potential cases at the earliest opportunity to avoid any contacts/spread. The research to date for this novel virus suggests that transmission appears to be during symptomatic phase, and as such, identifying those with symptoms and isolating them should reduce risk significantly.
In addition, it complies with our general illness rule which is to avoid contacts in the club when ill. Please answer the following questions (YES / NO) prior to travelling to any club-based activity and submit to the club as per their instructions.
This process must be completed for every activity with your club that you intend to attend. If athletes are training more than once in a day, they (athletes and staff) will only be required to complete the self-report screening form once.
