MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
COVID-19 PHASE 3
It is with great pleasure that I am able to share with you that ViaSport’s Return to Sport Guidelines have received validation from the BC Centre for Disease Control this past week. What does this mean for a return to training and competition for Boxing BC?
After today’s announcement from Lisa Beare (Minister of Tourism, Arts and Culture) we are now able to move into Phase 3 of the Return to Sport Guidelines. Effective immediately, clubs, athletes and coaches are able to begin measured contact (sparring and focus mitt work) through the creation of designated cohorts.
A Covid-19 cohort, or a bubble, is a small group in which athletes can train together, within two meters. The cohort concept encourages individuals who cannot maintain 2 metre physical distance when in group settings to interact with the same people within their own cohort group rather than switching daily contacts or randomly interacting with others outside that circle. When interacting with individuals not in your cohort, individuals should maintain a distance of two metres or wear a mask when closer than two metres with others. Each individual cohort can be made up of 10members from a club who are prepared to train together on a regular basis and limit their contact and exposure outside of the cohort. Competition may only occur within designated cohorts. Establishing cohorts will limit the number of people that each individual will come into contact with, reducing the risk of transmission and ensuring quicker contact tracing by health authorities if an outbreak occurs.
