I’m sure you are all aware of the Coronavirus advice and are wondering what impact it will have on the activities of Harmeny AC. Many of you will be aware that events across Scotland, and the world, have been postponed and cancelled as a result.
At present the advice from the Scottish Govt and our National Governing Body (NGB) Scottish Athletics is that club gatherings of less than 500 members can go ahead, which would include all runs and training sessions. The coaches remain keen to keep training sessions going for as long as possible. However we would ask that anyone suffering any flu-like symptoms or who are in close contact with someone displaying symptoms are sensible and stay away from the club sessions for a time. We would also ask that hygiene guidelines are followed. Please see the Govt and NHS advice https://www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-covid-19-information-for-the-public and www.nhsinform.scot/coronavirus.
We are obviously also at the mercy of Edinburgh Leisure and Edinburgh Council and their closing of facilities and are expecting further government and NGB advice in the next couple of days. We will, of course, follow this closely and keep you all up to date both by email and on the Facebook pages (Juniors: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1457275801211925/ and Seniors: https://www.facebook.com/groups/pentlandrunners/).
If you have any questions or concerns, please let us know.
