Covid-19 and Risk Awareness Declaration

I am able to participate in the Swim England Masters National Championships (25m) 2021 having completed and signed the relevant Declaration form as requested by Swim England.

By signing this declaration, I confirm that I am free from any symptoms related to the Covid-19 virus, I understand the main symptoms include:

  • a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back
  • a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or three or more coughing episodes in 24 hours
  • a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste.

I attend the competition knowing that participation cannot be without risk, I am therefore aware of these risks associated with the Covid-19 virus, but I still wish to participate in the competition.

I understand the processes and protocols Swim England have put in place in order to reduce risks and I will adhere to these in order to protect my health and the health of other members, staff and other users of the facility.

I also understand that the meet organiser will have to be flexible and responsive due to the evolving government advice around Covid-19, and the fact that circumstances will change.

NB: This form should be completed no more than seven days prior to the competition date and should be signed for all competitions attended.
