Hashing is back - this Easter Sunday 4th April
From 29 March, the ‘stay at home’ rule ends - and up to 6 people or 2 households can meet outside. Organised sport participation events such as races, rides and organised walks, and including hashing, can take place outdoors with any number of participants.
City of Exeter H3 are back hashing on Easter Sunday 4th April - so start getting eggcited! The trail will be from Route 5 on Haldon Hill (A38) Map - https://goo.gl/maps/Jq3pmWEm8MuQrBQ19
YOU SHOULD REGISTER AND UNDERTAKE A C19 SELF DECLARATION IN ADVANCE
Please read the following carefully (also on the registration form)
To facilitate a return to hashing, the City of H3 mismanagement have completed a COVID-secure risk assessment in alignment with the guidance from the Government
(https://www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-covid-19-grassroots-sports-guidance-for-safe-provision-including-team-sport-contact-combat-sport-and-organised-sport-events#organisedsportparticipationevents). We have used this risk assessment to produce a written delivery plan and any related guidance, demonstrating mitigations, how we plan to operate including responsibility for overseeing compliance, and listing the adaptations to 'normal hashing' required. Our Delivery Plan takes into account that there are three variables of transmission, and we have providde an assessment of the transmission risk that a return to the event represents based on three key variables:
1. Droplet transmission and aerosol generation: the risk associated with each action in an activity based on duration and proximity of participants.
2. Fomite transmission: the risk associated with the handling and transfer of equipment in the activity.
3. Population: the number of participants likely to take part in the proposed activity, and the known risk factors of participants with underlying health conditions or high-risk groups who wish to participate.
We are meeting NHS Test and trace requirements including recording of participants, and are ensuring that hash events start from appropriate venues (e.g. size of car parks). The Hash Guidance makes further recommendations to hares and participants in setting and running the trails, for example, to avoid crowding. In addition all participants are requested to register and undergo a self-assessment for any COVID-19 symptoms.
NOTE - YOU SHOULD REVIEW THE COVID-19 SELF-ASSESSMENT WITHIN 48 HOURS OF THE HASH EVENT.
