Updated Guidance for Cricket Indoors - October Update

Following a tightening of Covid-19 restrictions earlier in October, the ECB has announced a few updates and amendments to the Indoor Cricket guidelines.
  1. Local COVID Alert Levels
  2. This guide applies to Local COVID Alert Level 1 (Medium) where the ‘Rule of 6’ applies to adults (i.e. 18+ year olds) participating in indoor cricket activity
  3. There are exemptions to the ‘Rule of 6’ where groups can be larger than 6 people
  4. In England, you are required by law to wear a face covering in certain indoor settings. This does not currently include gyms, leisure centres and other sport facilities, however when not engaging in sport and physical activity visitors the government encourages visitors to wear face coverings in enclosed public areas where possible and practical. Staff in hospitality and retail are be required to wear face coverings.
  5. Venues must also display an NHS QR Code Poster (physically or electronically).

    This guidance provides practical advice to venues, participants, coaching providers and clubs about the steps they should take when undertaking indoor cricket activity. Guidelines should be read in conjuction with current UK government regulations. These guidelines could change in response to current Covid-19 alert level or other government advice.
