COVID-19: Information and Guidance for Netball Clubs and Leagues

The health and safety of the
Netball Family, whether you’re a member, player, volunteer, staff member or
fan, is our main priority, particularly during this busy season with
competitions and leagues running across the country at all levels of the game.

Currently, there are no plans to cancel, postpone or otherwise change any of the national competition and events that Welsh Netball delivers, however we are aware that the Coronavirus outbreak is a very fluid and rapidly changing situation. We are in regular contact with the relevant authorities and venues, franchises and all key partners and stakeholders to monitor the situation.

We will continue to follow advice
from Public Health Wales, the World Health Organisation and both local and
national government on this matter.

We would like to draw the
attention of anyone who attends any netball event or activity to the following
general advice:

• Frequently clean your hands in
soap and water, or with an alcohol-based hand rub. We will endeavour to provide
additional hand sanitizers where possible

• If you cough or sneeze, please
cover your mouth and nose with a flexed elbow or tissue – throw the tissue away
immediately and wash your hands

• Avoid contact with anyone who has
a fever or cough

• Avoid unnecessary contact with
‘high touch’ areas such as handrails, lift buttons, door handles, surfaces etc

• If you experience difficulty
breathing, have a high temperature or cough, please stay at home and contact a
medical advisor by phone

• Players are entitled, should
they wish, not to shake hands or have any other form of physical contact with
their opponent or officials (for example at the end of their match)

• Fans are advised that during
this time players may not feel comfortable interacting with fans to their usual
level and so it may be more difficult to obtain autographs or pictures with
players. Fans are thanked for their understanding at this time.

If you are considering attending
a netball event in any capacity and have recently returned to the UK from
overseas, particularly affected parts of the world, we would like to draw your
attention to the following advice from the UK Government: http://www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-covid-19-information-for-the-public
