Covid-19 Phase 3 Measures

Ronin Grappling aims to be transparent and accountable to its members.

Over the past few months we have taken a number of measures in preparation for a non contact re-opening in phase 3.

The government has now announced a plan to reopen gyms for non-contact classes on the 31st of August. As the non-contact timeframe has now been extended until the 5th of October a the earliest, we have created a schedule with classes developed to adhere to physical distancing guidance. This schedule is temporary, and will be in place until full contact sports are permitted to resume. We have based our re-opening plans on Sport Scotland’s guide: Getting your facilities fit for sport.

As part of these measures we have produced a number of documents to aid us in re-opening the gym while minimising the risk of cross-contamination and to adhere to social distancing rules.

Please see below our risk assessment, our cleaning and infection prevention policy, our hygiene recommendations for members, and our temporary schedule.

The Covid and Infection Control point of contact at Ronin Grappling will be Cristiana Theodoli whose responsibilities will include promoting good hygiene and ensuring this policy is implemented. In her role as a registered Adult nurse with the Nursing and Midwifery Council, Cristiana has received infection control training and as she is working at the forefront of the Covid crisis she understands the importance of working to NHS standards of hygiene.
