President’s blog – Covid-19 guidance from 21/7/21

Here is a quick summary of the guidance we have received from Central Council

Face masks,  expected if ringing with unvaccinated, youth groups or people with impaired immunity.
Ventilation,  with external airflow.
Number of ringers,  no limit, but avoid overcrowding in badly ventilated towers.
Social distancing,  no longer required.
Duration of ringing,  as long as the band is comfortable doing so.
Hand sanitiser,  still encouraged.
Lateral flow tests, recommended if you are mixing with anyone unvaccinated.
Great importance is still stressed on your own PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY for yourself and towards others.
