COVID-19 Guidance for our facilities at Burford Sports.

The new year 2021 COVID-19 Update

Following the announcements made by Prime Minister Johnson and First Minister Sturgeon on the 4th January 2021, it is appropriate to brief all our members about the changes to our services.

Where possible our group fitness sessions will continue online via zoom. to practise essential therapy services for the relief of pain and acute symptoms that may be detrimental to the quality of life, or in order to prevent disability.

What we’re doing to reduce infection rates of COVID-19

  • Our event timetable will be designed to permit only as many people as can be admitted. Social distancing is maintained at the venue at any given time.

  • The gym area is designed in order to maximise the available space, for each participant and minimise the number of time participants spend in close proximity to each other.

  • To ensure safe practices, we will consider limiting the number of classes being taught, to minimise exposure and transmission between groups.

  • Any 1-1 or group sessions will comply with the relevant National Governing Body Safeguarding Policies and Procedures and conduct a thorough risk assessment before engaging in any sessions. 

  • Groups of more than 6 people indoors or outdoors, will continue not to be permitted.

  • Social distancing guidelines will be followed between individuals from different households wherever possible. This means a distance of 2m between people from different households, or 1m plus mitigations (such as face coverings or avoiding face-to-face contact) where 2m is not possible.

  • Hand sanitiser and/or washing of hands will be encouraged at intervals. 

  • Where possible, we recommend that you limit the sharing of equipment, for example, weight lifting belts, knee and wrist wraps.
