In keeping with our governing body, Triathlon Scotland, GTC would like to direct you to their statement around personal health and wellbeing.
Triathlon Scotland statement:
You will be aware that the number of confirmed cases of Coronavirus (COVID-19) across the world is growing.
We have received no recommendation for postponing or cancelling any upcoming activities, meetings or events. However, we are monitoring the situation and will follow advice and guidance from all relevant government agencies, including Health Protection Scotland.
The health and wellbeing of our participants, members and volunteers is of paramount importance and we will act accordingly to minimise any risks posed by COVID-19. Key to efforts to contain the virus is good hygiene practice and we urge everyone to follow the guidance from NHS Scotland:
- Always carry tissues with you and use them to catch your cough or sneeze.
- Bin the tissue.
- To kill germs, wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water, or use a sanitiser gel.
Further health advice, including what you should do in the event of developing symptoms and self-isolation, is available on the NHS Inform Scotland website.
As always, should any club member or participant feel unwell, they should not take part in any triathlon activity and should seek appropriate medical advice where necessary.
If you have medical concerns relating to COVID-19, please contact – by telephone – your local doctors’ practice or NHS24 on 111. Do not attend in person, if you feel you may have symptoms.
Travel guidance relating to specific countries and regions around the world which have been impacted by COVID-19 is also available on the NHS Inform Scotland website.
This includes health advice for those returning from those areas. Please also make use of the UK Government Foreign and Commonwealth Office website for wider travel advice specific to each country.
