Following on from today’s HM Government COBRA Briefing we have taken the decision to cancel all club activities until further notice.
This is understandably a very trying time for everyone in our community, and as a club we want to encourage everyone to take time to look after eachother’s mental as well as physical health.
During this time we’ll signpost members to online resources promoting fitness for wheelchair users, and our members-only discussion group will still be operating so that players and volunteers can stay in touch.
For now, may we take this opportunity to wish all our members and supporters well: let’s all keep as safe as possible, and look forward to happier times in the months ahead.
DDWSC Committee, 16-3-2020.
I’d like to take this opportunity to reassure all members that we are keeping a close eye on the guidance from our National Governing Bodies, Local Council and The Scottish Government regarding the novel corona virus COVID-19, and continually assessing how their directives may impact upon the club’s activities.
At present we encourage all members to adhere to the current advice to self-isolate if experiencing symptoms of possible infection (fever, persistent cough) regardless of how mild: this of course means avoiding all club activities during that time.
Should there come a time that we have to cancel club sessions we will try to let you know via all our social media platforms with as much notice as possible.
In the meantime we ask the following of all players, volunteers and attendees at club sessions:
• Take care to wash your hands with soap and water before and after each session (there are sink & hand drying facilities in the toilets next to our regular gym hall).
• Ensure players take responsibility to wipe down the seats slings, cushions & backrests of the sports chair they have used with the hard surface wipes provided.
• Take extra care to wipe down the handrims of sports chair wheels after their use with the provided hard surface wipes.
We’ll stay in touch with updates as they become available, and also with tips about how to stay active if we can’t facilitate organised club sessions.
Fingers crossed we all get through the next few weeks with but a little disruption – stay safe folks!
