Open Water Swimming - Coronavirus Guidelines
The open water swimming sessions will take place at Bodenham Lake on Friday evenings. They are for members only and numbers are limited.
Please do not mention the venue on social media or post your data if the location is visible. Our agreement with Herefordshire Wildlife Trust, who manage the lake, has a requirement that we do not promote the venue or make the location of our sessions known.
For our members aged 18 or younger, we need written permission from your parent or guardian to say that you are able to attend the sessions. An email is fine.
Your details will be stored securely in accordance with data protection regulations.
We will be taking part in the UK track and trace scheme. If anybody becomes ill, or suspects that they are ill, with coronavirus then we will contact you all to notify you. This may require you to pass your details on to the scheme.
Please do not attend the sessions if you are feeling unwell, if you have a high temperature or if you are self-isolating. If you receive a track and trace notification or if you have a positive test result for coronavirus then you must notify the club immediately.
We would advise bringing hand gel with you to use after the session and before you eat or drink.
There will not be an opportunity to just turn up and swim. The coaches will have to turn you away if you do so.
We are not able to have any spectators or animals in the compound. Should you wish to bring your children, pets, family or friends then they will have to watch from elsewhere on the side of the lake.
