On Friday 23rd October, following a tightening of COVID-19 restrictions, the ECB announced an update to Guidance for Indoor Cricket.
The following amendments have been made to the guidance:
- Local COVID Alert Levels
- This guide applies to Local COVID Alert Level 1 (Medium) where the ‘Rule of 6’ applies to adults (i.e. 18+ year olds) participating in indoor cricket activity
- There are exemptions to the ‘Rule of 6’ where groups can be larger than 6 people
- In England, you are required by law to wear a face covering in certain indoor settings. This does not currently include gyms, leisure centres and other sport facilities, however when not engaging in sport and physical activity, the government encourages visitors to wear face coverings in enclosed public areas where possible and practical. Staff in hospitality and retail are be required to wear face coverings.
- Venues must also display an NHS QR Code Poster (physically or electronically).
