We have decided to make a slight alteration to our Covid-19 policy at youth club, with regard to face coverings. Up until now we have only used outdoor or well ventilated indoor spaces and observed strict social distancing. But with the weather changing this is no longer feasible, and along with the recent implications of long term restrictions enforced nationally we feel the right approach to help us remain open is to ask everyone working at or attending youth club to wear a mask, with the following exceptions (as allowed by governement guidelines)
- Children aged 11 or under
- Whilst taking part in exercise/physical activity
- Whilst taking part in an activity where a mask would have a negative impact, so long as social distancing is strictly observed
- Where health issues prevent wearing of mask (proof will be required)
Masks can be provided by youth club if anyone doesn't have one.
I have updated and reviewed our risk assesment, see below.
