Anyone with symptoms of coronavirus who has been in close contact with a confirmed case in the last 14 days should:
isolate themselves from other people - this means going into a different, well-ventilated room alone, with a phone

in a medical emergency (if you have severe symptoms) phone 112 or 999"
The Club will keep you updated if there are any changes to this policy.
