As Coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to dominate the
headlines, at Merstham Cricket Club we want to share with you the
latest set of guidelines that the ECB, via Sport England, has
advised us to follow.
We are sure that many of your work places, too, will
have adopted and shared the Government's advice.

advise you to read carefully the advice from Sport England, which
can be found here.
The latest Government advice is if you have a
temperature or a new and continuous cough, stay at home for seven
days, regardless of whether you have travelled to infected
countries or not and no matter how mild the symptoms.
Updated Government advice, including on hand washing,
can be found here and
we would ask you to continue to monitor official advice.

that indoor winter nets continue as scheduled, but we would ask
that you take the sensible precaution of staying away if you are

you do develop the symptoms and have attended a session, we request
that you let us know so that we can assess the risks involved in
continuing with such sessions.
At present, we are also due to hold our NatWest
Cricket Force weekend to prepare the club for the season on the
weekend April 4 and 5. We will be confirming details nearer the
time and this will be subject to advice taken.
We will continue to update you about these activities
