The government have classified “Clinically Vulnerable People” of being a higher risk of severe illness.
This group, which include people aged 70 or over, people with liver disease, people with diabetes, pregnant women should stay at home as much as possible.
The advice is if you do go out, take particular care to minimise contact with others outside your household.
The principles you should follow to ensure that time spent with others outside your home, whilst visiting Altrincham Golf course to play golf is as safe as possible (unless you are clinically vulnerable and currently shielding at home or extremely vulnerable in which case you should follow separate advice as detailed below)
It is your responsibility to adopt these principles wherever possible:
Keep your distance from people outside your household.Public Health England recommends trying to keep 2m away from people as a precaution.
Keep your hands and face as clean as possible.Wash your hands often using soap and water, and dry them thoroughly. Use sanitiser, especially as you enter a building and after you have had contact with surfaces. Avoid touching your face.
Avoid being face to face with people if they are outside your household. You are at higher risk of being directly exposed to respiratory droplets released by someone talking or coughing when you are within 2m of someone and have face-to-face contact with them. You can lower the risk of infection if you stay side-to-side rather than facing people
Wash your golf clothes regularly. There is some evidence that the virus can stay on fabrics for a few days, although usually it is shorter, so if you are working with people outside your household wash your clothes regularly
