posted 4 Jun 2020, 00:16 by Edenderry GAA

The GAA have put into place a list of guidelines as they prepare to open up designated walkways around club grounds.

As the country looks set to move to Phase 2 of easing Covid-19 restrictions on 8 June, the GAA have confirmed that clubs will be able to re-open designated walking tracks subject to a management plan.

Initially the walking tracks can only open for four hours a day and must be supervised throughout, with clubs able to decide themselves when the most suitable times periods are.

Clubs must ensure that stewards are on hand to maintain social distancing rules and that people are using the facilities under a one-way system.

Covid-19 signage must be displayed around the grounds and steps taken to ensure that the walkways are only open for recreational purpose, with no group or team training of any kind.

Clubs have also been asked to ensure that they provide designated hours for vulnerable people or those who have been cocooning to use the walkways.
