Shirt collection guidelines
As I write this, we are in the process of finalising the Risk Assessments and protocols that have to be in place for full participation football as well as the simple things, like popping into the club shop to buy or collect something.
With that in mind, I am very much aware the keenness for everyone who supported the brilliant #GetBehindTheShirt initiative, wanting to collect their shirts asap. For fans to come in and collect them there has to be a risk assessment in place just like Sainsburys or the local shops, and these will be enforced. However, there will also be certain other restrictions which we are using to test movement and compliance around the Laithwaite Community Stadium.
The first thing to consider is:
â€¢ Are you fit and well enough to actually attend?
â€¢ Are you showing any signs of infection* or generally unwell?
If so, DO NOT ATTEND.
You may have to queue outside in the sun for a prolonged period if everyone turns up at once. Are you capable of sustaining a delay?
Remember: Keep 2 metres apart and socially distance
There will be NO refreshments on site. If you will require food or drink, you MUST bring them with you and take the waste home too.
Entry will be subject to a health screening and temperature check. Depending on the results you may be declined access along with persons in your social bubble. To prevent this, please travel alone if possible and without dependents.
Everyone will be required to have and to wear a face mask designed to cover the nose and mouth on Woking FC property â€“ full compliance unless medical documentation is to hand explaining exemption. T-shirts, snoods or bandanas around faces do not constitute face masks.
Hands are to be sanitised before entering the club using the products supplied at the point of entry.
Entry will be through the large double gates nearest the club shop off the main car park, Kingfield Road. Car parking will be very limited and its suggested you walk or cycle where possible. Disabled parking only in the front car park on production of a valid blue badge.
There will be a one-way system in place which MUST be followed.
There will be no access to any part of the ground or playing area other than the entrance route indicated, Cardinalsâ€™ Bar (ground floor only), disabled toilet and exit by the Playersâ€™ Entrance.
Failing to adhere to these stipulations will see future entry to club events severely restricted.
It is anticipated that we will have a stadium capacity number soon, but are awaiting guidance on away fans as that majorly affects entrance and exit points due to segregation, not to mention travel to and from areas under possible local lock down. No doubt it will then have to go to Health and Safety and be ratified by the League before we can declare a figure which in turn my vary from week to week. There is progress, just not the solid answers you all want just yet. One step at a time and cross off that list.
*What does self-assess for signs and symptoms mean?
Everyone should before attending and if showing any signs, do not attend, self-isolate, and inform the NHS by ringing 119.
If you are or a member of your household are isolating, do not attend.
- Fever or high temperature (eg 37.8C or 100.04F)
- New or continuous cough
- Suffering a loss of taste or smell
- A shortness of breath during exercise or at rest
- Headaches, feeling generally unwell, or suffering persistent tiredness/fatigue muscle and joint pains
If you answer YES to any of these questions, self-isolate, inform the NHS by calling 119 and follow the advice from them.
