9 July 2021 [Coaches, Instructors and Sports Operators to take note]
A SAFE AND GRADUAL RESUMPTION OF SPORT AND FITNESS ACTIVITIES WITH MANDATORY FAST AND EASY TESTING (FET)
As part of the national enhanced measures for workers in higher-risk mask-off settings and to further reduce the risk of transmission in these settings, the Multi-Ministry Taskforce has introduced the Fast and Easy Testing (FET) regime. The FET has been progressively rolled out and will be made mandatory from mid-July 2021 for all coaches, instructors and staff, who come into contact with unmasked persons in the course of their work. This segment of the workforce is required to be on a regular FET regime using tests such as the antigen rapid test (ART), regardless of their vaccination status.
To further reduce the risk of transmission, all employees and self-employed persons (SEPs) in the Sports and Fitness businesses working in settings with unmasked clients/patrons are required to undergo FET every 14 days, regardless of their vaccination status.
We appreciate your continued support and understanding as we practise social responsibility to safeguard the health and well-being of all members of the canoeing community.
