Covid-19 Update 2nd November 2020

Covid-19 Update 2nd November 2020

COVID-19 Guidance 2nd November 2020

The Prime Minister has announced that England will be going into a month of Lockdown from Thursday 5th November.

Following this and the introduction, or pending introduction, of National Government COVID-19 ‘Lockdowns’ or Tiered systems for COVID-19 restriction across Great Britain, TREC GB has updated its guidance to Affiliated TREC Clubs, as detailed below.

Affiliated TREC Clubs and Organisers should not accept entries for, or offers of help in running an event, from anyone who lives in an area where mandatory travel restrictions apply. Individuals should be aware of any restrictions that apply both in their own area and areas where events are planned to take place.

No individuals should travel into, out of or within such an area to take part in TREC GB or Affiliated Club events. Travel under such circumstances is considered non-essential.

Some parts of a country may also have specific travel restrictions within an area. Those responsible for organising events should beware of these restrictions and not accept entries or offers of help from individuals living in these areas.

Please remember that everyone must follow their National Government’s Guidelines and that TREC GB will continue to monitor the situation carefully and take account of further advice and guidance as and when it is released.

Please stay safe.

TREC GB Covid update 13th Sept 2020

TREC GB Covid update 13th Sept 2020

Further to the COVID-19 statement issued on Wednesday 9th September 2020, the Government’s announcement that social gatherings of more than six people will be illegal in England from Monday 14th September and a similar announcement by the Scotland government, TREC GB can now confirm that:

  1. Events including competitions can go ahead as planned as long as all our procedures and protocols are followed.
  2. Organisers must collect competitor, judge and helper details to support the NHS Track and Trace programme and retain the information for three weeks.
  3. Our insurance broker, SEIB, have also confirmed that there is no change to insurance cover because of the latest government restrictions due to come into force tomorrow.
  4. At the present time there are no changes to our guidance related to training and competing in Scotland and Wales.

Please remember that any ‘local restrictions’ that are in force take precedent over the more general national rules.

Continue to enjoy being TREC active again.

TREC GB Covid update 9th Sept 2020

TREC GB Covid update 9th Sept 2020

Following the Government’s announcement that social gatherings of more than six people will be illegal in England from Monday 14th September, TREC GB is awaiting further clarification as to whether or not planned training and competitions can go ahead.

Our insurance broker, SEIB, has been contacted directly and we await their response. The key question is: As an organised sport will our events be exempt?

Early indications are that organised sporting events are not included in this legislation. Hopefully this will be the case as a lot of time and effort has gone into preparing Covid safe activities by our clubs and organisers.

Further announcements from Central Government, large equestrian organisations and SEIB will determine whether or not we can continue at this time.

In the meantime, TREC GB advises that clubs and organisers contact members who have booked to participate in planned activities after 14th September informing them that, we hope everything can continue as planned as we are all very Covid-19 aware and secure in our planning and health and safety protocols

We will of course issue more information as soon as possible.

Dave

TREC GB Covid update 8th July 2020

TREC GB Covid update 8th July 2020

Following the Covid-19 update issued on Sunday 5th July TREC GB has received a reply from South East Essex Insurance Brokers and can confirm that, for Competitions planned to take place in England, we can move to Step 3A of the updated TREC GB Framework for Restarting Events, provided we adhere to the ‘ groups of six working in isolation’ guidelines.

TREC GB had anticipated this response and prepared, in advance, an updated Framework so that it could be sent to Clubs and Organisers as soon as possible.

The document ‘TREC GB Framework for Restarting Events’ (Version 2.1) will be sent to Clubs and Organisers later today and can be accessed via the link below.

Framework for Restarting Events v2.1 (030720)

TREC GB Covid update 5th July 2020

TREC GB Covid update 5th July 2020

TREC GB understands that regulations made by the Secretary of State in England on Friday, that came into force yesterday the 4th July 2020, should allow us the move to Step 3 of the TREC GB ‘Framework for Restarting Competitions’ (V1.1) for events planned to take place in England.

We have contacted South Essex Insurance Brokers requesting confirmation and expect a reply later this week.

We await further guidance from the governments of Scotland and Wales.

Competitions would continue to be subject to the most recent Government guidance, which would inform how they would need to be organised to comply with social distancing, hygiene and other requirements.

Therefore, TREC GB invites Clubs and Organisers, in England, to submit the appropriate- Booking Form- Training (V2.2), Summer Non-Qualifier/Other types of Competitions (V2.1),   along with a suitably detailed Risk Assessment (V4.0) to admin@trecgb.com

The most recent Booking and Risk Assessment forms will be emailed to Clubs and Organisers at the same time as this statement. Please make sure the Risk Assessment addresses all the COVID-19 aspects. Additionally, I can confirm that it is now possible to use indoor schools (England only) from the 4th July 2020.

Provisionally booked dates may obviously be subject to changes should restrictions be reintroduced locally or across the whole country.

We look forward to seeing members competing again but we must ensure all remain safe and respect competition protocols and guidance whilst there remains a risk of spreading Covid-19.
