Sport NI, in partnership with the Department for Communities, launched the applications for COVID Safe Sport Packs.
The contents of the packs are designed to reflect current scientific evidence around the most effective methods of reducing the infection of COVID-19 including;
- Increased hygiene measures (including hand hygiene)
- Use of PPE when social distancing cannot be maintained
- Links to education material around best practice and minimising infection spread
These packs are designed to help sports clubs meet Government and PHA guidelines around a safe return to sport and assist in providing materials for the implementation of risk mitigation protocols for COVID-19 infection control.
There will be initially 2500 packs available, allocated on a first come first given basis. No deadline had been set for applications; however, Sport NI advise you to apply as soon as possible.
