Coronavirus Guidance

Following a number of queries received by BCGBA, and the media attention surrounding Coronavirus, BCGBA wishes to advise that no events under its jurisdiction are affected at present.

BCGBA will continue to monitor the situation and further guidance will be issued at a later date if necessary.

For more information, please visit: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-covid-19-information-for-the-public.

  •  If you have a personal concern you should contact https://111.nhs.uk/.
  •  If you have been asked to self-isolate then you should follow the advice given by your GP or NHS111.

It would be sensible to wash your hands before and after any game or practice session and the cleaning of jacks should be done on a regular basis.  Contact between players should be reduced to a minimum.  Disposable paper cloths for cleaning is recommended rather than a reusable one.

Care should also be taken with the use of bowls cleaning cloths and should be washed on a regular basis and probably best not to share with someone else

We have not received any additional advice from the government or NHS at present and will continue to monitor the situation.

Leagues will potentially need to review their rules on cancellation of matches should the situation change.

Sport England have added some information. Please visit: https://www.sportengland.org/news/coronavirus-information-sector.

Be aware, advice may change at any point
