ECB Ground Upkeep update

To all clubs,

 

Following an earlier communication from the ECB we are pleased to be able to answer a key concern that has arisen in many Cricket Clubs.

 

Further advice from the ECB around Ground maintenance at clubs below and attached.

The following statement below and the attached guidance is a collaboration between Professor Nick Pierce (ECB Chief Medical Officer), David Newman (ECB Emergency Care Coordinator) and Andy MacKay (ECB Pitch and Grounds Advisor).

If clubs have any further enquiries you can contact facilities@ecb.co.uk.

Covering Statement: Professor Nick Pierce (ECB Chief Medical Officer)

 

Dear all, 

 

As of 23 March 2020, the Government introduced increasingly stringent social distancing in a further attempt to reduce the spread of the Coronavirus and the potential impact on vulnerable individuals. It is essential that this advice is adhered to in relation to the health and wellbeing of all individuals.

 

As a result of the Government’s announcements, a number of businesses across the United Kingdom have introduced home working for all staff. There will also be a delay to all regular cricket participation and a delay to the regular season.

 

The latest government guidance means that ground staff/facilities maintenance falls under:

‘Travelling to and from work, but only where this absolutely cannot be done from home, provided you are well and neither you nor any of your household are self-isolating.’

 

Should you decide that essential grounds care needs to continue to look after your facilities during this period of social isolation, you must do so in line with current Government’s latest guidance. This includes keeping ground staff to minimum numbers, preferably no more than 2, that any visits are carefully staggered and particular heightened attention is made to evidence that surfaces carry significant and prolonged risk of contamination. The use of regular shared indoor facilities such as rest rooms, kitchens and changing rooms should be avoided where possible.

 

The attached sets out undertakings that that you must instigate to minimise the risks of the spread of the virus including only using essential facilities.

 

This advice is given taking in to account the latest government advice (as of 25th March). However, the situation is changing very rapidly and may change at short notice. Therefore, please follow the latest government advice.

 

Kind regards, 

 

Professor Nick Pierce

ECB Chief Medical Officer
