Hashing and the new 'Rule of Six'

As an organised outdoor sport / physical activity, hashing is an exempt the COVID-19 'rule of 6' introduced on 14th September 2020. The hash is adhering to the Governmental guidance issued / updated on 10 September (https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/coronavirus-covid-19-guidance-on-phased-return-of-sport-and-recreation/guidance-for-the-public-on-the-phased-return-of-outdoor-sport-and-recreation). 
We have produced and updated various documents that detail procedures and mitigations that ensure that we adhere to the guidelines above. Please make sure that you read them carefully - the registration form that you are required to complete asks for confirmation that you have done so.  This includes a Risk Assessment, an event Delivery Plan and a Guideline document. In addition it is now mandatory that participants undertake a COVID-19 self assessment no more than 48 hours before each hash event.  We also ask participants to provide contact details to support NHS Test & Trace, 
Documents are stored at https://tiny.cc/CoEH3.  

COVID-19 self-assessment and Test&Trace registration is at https://tiny.cc/HashReg.  

While its inconvenient to register each week, this is a requirement that we must meet in order to be able to continue meeting in groups larger than 6 - the registration form should 'remember' your previously entered details.

We are monitoring the local and national situation on a regular basis, and are prepared to cancel or change events, for example if a local lockdown were to be necessary.
