LAST UPDATED: Friday 9th April 2021
Following the latest Welsh Government review of coronavirus restrictions on Thursday 1st April we are pleased to progress into the Red Phase of our Return To Judo roadmap. This means organised physical activity is permitted outside for U18’s only and minimal, intermittent contact, such as kumi-kata or uchi-komi is permitted. Up to six people from two different households can also meet and exercise socially distanced outdoors.
The relaxations continue the Welsh Government’s planned, step-by-step approach to relaxing the coronavirus. Wales is moving out of alert level four, and now starting to move into level three. As we continue to liaise with colleagues in Sport Wales and the WSA, details of what moving Wales into Alert Level 3 looks like can be found here.
The timing of resumed activity spans across the four themes, with greater detail provided by Welsh Government and national governing bodies as we progress through the phases, moving out of lockdown. The message from Welsh Government is clear: some activities – due to the limitations posed by social distancing – lend themselves to resuming earlier than others and a coordinated approach is required.
Our guidance is based on Welsh Government legislation, this is the law in Wales and differs from England, Scotland and other Home Countries. Public Health Wales guidance surrounding Covid-19 is drawn in accordance with Welsh Government legislation. Please note that due to the ever-changing status of the current COVID-19 pandemic the guidelines provided will continue to be adapted, in line with and guided by Welsh Government legislation and Public Health Wales guidelines.
The guidance provided in our Return To Judo documents enables Welsh Judo clubs to reopen inline with the latest legislation. Clubs must follow this guidance to be insured when they reopen. We have made every effort to communicate these guidelines as simply and as clearly as possible through the following SIX STEPS that will allow clubs to reopen safely during the Covid-19 pandemic in Wales when not in lockdown:
