JRCS conditions for junior rugby clubs’ return to training during Covid-19
“Clubs should implement the following five steps to ensure compliance with MOH guidelines and also to minimize the risk of further spread:
Maintain a registration list (or similar) of all people attending training, including contact details, to allow for contact tracing if necessary. This should include anyone attending training – kids, coaches, parents, helpers, etc. This is probably the most important aspect to control, and clubs should step up efforts to make sure they capture all attendees and their contact details.
Remind all parents they must continue to follow all of the usual precautionary measures that remain in place all over Singapore, namely:
a. no one should attend if they have any signs of a fever, cough, runny nose, sore throat or generally feel unwell (all attendees should do self-temperature checks in the morning before coming to training); and
b. no one should attend if they, or any members of their household, have visited China within the last 14 days
Have at least a 15-minute gap between training slots to minimise the overlap of people. For example if your training slots are currently 8:30-10, 10-11:30 and 11:30-1, either reduce the training times to allow a 15-minute gap between each slot, or alternatively change the times to achieve the same (eg 8:00-9:30, 9:45-11:15 & 11:30-1).
Ban the use of mouthguards (and therefore contact work where mouthguards are needed), and the sharing of water bottles.
Keep different age groups separate, and within each age-group, try to split training up into smaller groups (if practical, consider training in “school groups” where possible).
These efforts should remain in place until further notice, noting that the Clubs will continue to review the situation and look to provide a further update by no later than 13 March.”
