Covid 19 and Club re-opening
#1
We, Chess Scotland, have reached out to the Scottish Government for guidance on when we can return to both club / league and tournament chess.
 
It looks like Clubs will be able to start back from 14th of September when the restriction on indoor events are lifted, however that date may change and is not set in stone.  There will be an upper limit to how many can meet indoors and that will determine whether leagues can start.  
 
Tournaments will not be able to start at this time.  We gave indicative numbers we get at our events and they would be too big.
 
The SG agreed with the Guidance we have and said that would have to be in place as also agreed there should be the recording of who is there (names and addresses) in case someone in the clubs comes down with C-19 to allow track and trace.
 
So no clubs should be open at the moment.  If they are, they are in breach of the SG guidelines. 
 
For reference, to allow clubs to open hopefully on the 14th of next month, the following have to apply.
 
Venues will be limited to x number of people (to be determined by the Government)
Players and Arbiters only allowed in the playing hall, when matches finish, players must leave the hall
All equipment must be sanitised before the start of play of play
Hand sanitizers must be available
Face coverings to be worn at all time 
Venues must have adequate ventilation to prevent virus load building up
Players must sign a declaration that they do not have any symptoms of Covid 19 before being allowed into the playing hall 
Boards have to be separated by 1.5 - 2m
Someone at the Club must be responsible for recording the names and addresses of all attendees each evening.

It will also be posted on the website news.
