COVID – 19 precautions

COVID-19 precautions

It is the responsibility of individual members to decide based on their own risk factors, including age and health, whether they participate in U3A events. U3A does not accept responsibility for individual decisions or situations where a member may have contracted COVID-19 at a U3A event. U3A advises that if members are unwell or showing cold/flu-like symptoms they should stay at home and self-isolate until symptoms have abated or the member has had a COVID-19 test and has been declared not infectious.

Government health advice is as follows:

“People who are at higher risk of COVID-19 infection include People aged 70 years and over and people aged 65 years and over with chronic medical conditions”.

Hygiene and Cleaning:

Members are to adopt good hand hygiene practices to protect themselves and others. Individual members may choose to wear an appropriate mask if they feel this is necessary.
