You must NOT attend a Club trip or other event if you:

o   Some people may also experience headache, muscle soreness, stuffy nose, nausea, vomiting and diarrhoea.

 

If you are in a high risk category, including being elderly or having a pre-existing medical condition, you should consider carefully whether you participate as the Club will accept no liability if you choose to participate.

·      all passengers should wear a fitted face mask in the car if not from your household

·      increase ventilation in the vehicle by opening windows wherever possible and avoid having air-conditioning on recirculate

·      clean and disinfect high touch surfaces in the vehicle regularly.
