We had a whole strategy battleplan laid out and were finishing off the details with our ABC colleagues, only for it to be sunk before it was launched by Lockdown 2. The fight continues, and at least I won't get bored during the latest lockdown!
All a bit frustrating.
We carefully partitioned off sections of wall/boxes on the mats and marked walkways. Reset so each panel was independent with no cross over. The same in all the training areas.
We installed a massive extraction system (3 actually, one for each of our rooms) that exceeded the required spec by a factor of six.
Closed changing rooms and introduced sequential bog access.
Removed all the hand driers and replaced with paper towels.
Introduced sterilisation/cleaning routines etc etc etc...
Meanwhile, as an aside, we just had our second brush with isolation, because of kids Football. Opposition player from last Sunday’s game (12yrs) got sick the evening after the match and had a positive test back this morning. The father just got a positive back too. The lad, it appears, picked it up in school and his year group bubble has been sent home (no idea about the number of cases, not one of our schools).
The idea that kids, somehow, don’t spread this, is utter shit.
Had a text from the Junior FA rep about an hour ago, confirming that we’re not in the at risk group (lad didn’t play the whole match, was on the pitch for less than 10 minutes whilst our daughter was on etc).
We restricted numbers and rigidly enforced mask rules.
