FM statement 7 October 2020

Following the First Minister’s Covid-19 statement yesterday, we are working with sportscotland  and the Scottish Government to clarify some of the new restrictions and identify any specific impact on gymnastics. 

We will provide a further update as soon as we have confirmed the detail of yesterday’s announcement. 

•  At this stage we do not anticipate any additional restrictions and the guidance updated on 16 September is still effective. 
•  We have received a number of enquiries about preschool activity which we are clarifying and will provide any further update if required. 

Central belt area focusing on five health board areas: Ayrshire & Arran; Forth Valley; Greater Glasgow & Clyde; Lanarkshire; Lothian
•  We are seeking clarification on the restriction on “group exercise classes for indoor gyms”. However, it is clear that any change here will not impact U18 activity. 
•  There should be no contact between coaches and/or gymnasts over 18 in an outdoor gymnastics setting. 

You can read the government update on these new measures including restrictions around travel within the five health boards in the central belt. 

Doc McKelvey
Chief Executive
