Following a recent letter sent out to parents and carers of children attending schools in the local area we wanted to address our Springift members to assure you that here at Springft, members safety is our number one priority, and we are doing everything we can to keep classes running and members safe.
We encourage our coaches to take part in regular symptom free testing and we advise you to do the same thing. This allows us to remain vigilant and try to reduce the risk of cases within the club.
Testing if you have symptoms:
Anyone showing symptoms should immediately isolate and get a PCR test, and everyone in the household should continue to isolate until the PCR test result is received. If positive, they will be advised further by NHS Test and Trace. It is also important to let us know at Springfit Head Office so that we can follow the correct procedures to keep everybody safe.
Symptom free testing:
All adults are encouraged to take a symptom-free rapid lateral flow test twice a week, even if you have been vaccinated. You can collect a home testing kit from a designated site or order online via the government website.
Surge testing is increased testing (including door-to-door testing in some areas) and enhanced contact tracing in specific locations in England and can look different depending on assessment of local requirements.
It involves testing of people who do not have any symptoms of COVID-19.
For more information on Surge Testing as well as how to find your local testing site please check the website for your local authority.
