The health and wellbeing of our players is of paramount importance to us at BAFC. We are closely monitoring the guidance for Coronavirus (Covid19) from Public Health England and the FA.
We have therefore agreed to discourage handshakes before / after a match. Instead children, and coaches, may choose to ‘elbow bump’. We would also encourage the use of hand sanitiser before and after each match and training session.
In accordance with current guidance, the spread of Coronavirus can be reduced by good hand washing (20 seconds, 10 times per day), sneezing into a tissue and discarding it in a bin then washing your hands, and avoiding close contact with those unwell with a fever.
