Covid-19 Measures

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

Over the past year we have taken a number of measures in preparation for a re-opening.

The government has now announced a move to Level 0, and therefore the return to indoor contact sports for the week beginning 19/07/2021.

While our schedule (below) is back in full effect we are still having to take a number of measures to lower the likelyhood of any cross contamination.

As part of these measures we have produced a number of documents, please see below our cleaning and infection prevention policy, our hygiene recommendations for members, and our current schedule.

We have based our re-opening plans on Sport Scotland’s guide: Getting your facilities fit for sport.

As numbers are fairly high in Scotland we ask that everyone is careful and please do regular lateral flow tests to ensure that the club isn’t wiped out. Whilst most of us have been fully vaccinated, there is still a risk to folk who’ve not been dosed yet. Lateral flow tests can be ordered for free *here* or accessed for free at most pharmacies. If you develop symptoms or feel unwell please stay home until a negative test. Most of us can’t work from home so please act responsibly.

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.
