Swim England issues face coverings update following Government announcement

Swim England is strongly encouraging athletes, coaches, teachers, volunteers and spectators to wear face coverings where possible following the announcement of additional Covid restrictions by the Government.

The Government’s ‘Plan B’ announcement was made around face coverings, working from home and Covid passports for large events in a bid to slow down the spread of the Omicron strain of coronavirus.

Swim England is still awaiting the Government to publish its full guidance about what the changes mean before updating its own guidance.
