Plans were underway for the reopening of ESNG later this month. We’d welcome a limited number of people to play trains, but make things as Covid-safe as possible.
Then came yesterday’s government announcement limiting social gatherings again. So, perhaps it’s all off again?
But maybe yes…… The government guidance says that from Monday:
“If partaking in permitted activities users of COVID-19 secure community facilities should limit their social interactions with anyone they do not live with. Whilst activities may have 6 or more people participating (where it is safe to do so and capacity permits) it is important for all parties to maintain socially distant, 2 metres or 1 metre with actions taken to reduce the risk of transmission (where 2 metres is not viable) between households. For example, use of face coverings and encouraging good hand hygiene on entering premises and throughout visit.”
So I’ll look again at the full list of permitted activities on Monday. Clubs in Covid-safe communal areas might be exempt. We still may be OK to carefully meet up together.
I can’t keep up! These changes are definitely needed, but they happen to quickly for a bear of little brain.
UPDATE: At the moment, the published guidance looks like a yes – community organisations can go ahead with Covid-safe precautions.
