Swim England London Open Meet – 14th/15th March13 March 2020
We are aware that some Clubs may be concerned regarding the status of the Open Meet this weekend with the current situation surrounding COVID-19.
Swim England London are following the advice of the UK Government and Public Health England, being led by the UK’s Chief Medical Officer and Chief Scientific Advisor, which is that there should be no current restrictions on sporting events.
The Open Meet will therefore be going ahead as planned. We have liaised with the venue and they have put in place sensible precautions to reduce the risk of viral or bacterial transmission.
We strongly advise all athletes, staff and spectators to follow the UK government’s advice and do not attend the event if you have even mild symptoms. Further information on the government’s advice can be found at https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/
Should government advice change, we will review the position.
We look forward to seeing our Clubs for the Open Meet this weekend.
