Covid-19 – Club Updates

HRUFC Changes to COVID Secure Arrangements – effective 24th September 2020
Following the changes announced yesterday the Club has revised its COVID Secure measures, so please take the time to read the information below.
Firstly, thank you for your patience and your support to the Club through these difficult times.  Secondly, please remember neither the Club Executive nor the Bar Staff make these rules, however from today we are legally required to enforce them.
Our purpose is to deliver the best and safest environment for our Members and Guests so you can enjoy our fantastic facility, feel safe, experience what we have to offer, and return home safely.
From today, Thursday, 24th September, the following rules will apply:
  • Last orders will be at 9.30pm and all Members and Guests will be asked to vacate the premises by 10pm.
  • Face coverings must be worn when entering the Club and when not sat at a table, unless you are personally exempt – if you are, please let a member of staff know.
  • The NHS App QR Code posters will be displayed for you to use to register for Track and Trace, or you will still be able to enter your details into our manual register.
  • Members and Guests will be expected to remain seated unless using the facilities and must not mingle between tables.
As a reminder we will continue to:
  • Offer table service only with preferred payment via the Round App or by Card.
  • Restrict groups to the maximum permitted number of 6.
Access to the Clubhouse will be via two control points: the first at the main doors, and the second from the balcony door into the function room.  At each point you will be required to sign in and sanitise your hands.
As the Terrace is classed as a takeaway no further actions are required, unless an organised event such as a BBQ takes place, at which time the COVID Secure process above will be enforced.
For those using the Gym, SV Therapy or attending Slimming World, separate arrangements will be in place and each organisation will inform their Members accordingly.
In terms of attendance for rugby coaching, this will continue as is and Paul Tucker, Chair of Rugby, will issue any amendments to the Return to Rugby roadmap on advice from the RFU.  This is currently unchanged, and we remain in Phase D with a maximum of 20 players per half-pitch.
By working together, we can help keep everyone safe, healthy, and Harlow Rugby Club can make a difference.
