Dear Members, Players, Coaches, Managers and Parents
Eastern Suburbs Football Club (“Easts”) attaches below a recent memorandum from Football Queensland on the Coronavirus (COVID-19).
Easts strongly recommends everyone reads this memo, along with the reading the links regarding how to reduce the risk of contacting the Coronavirus.
Of particular and practical importance is to ensure:
- Using thorough handwashing techniques and anti-bacterial hand gels.
- No sharing of fruit or water bottles.
- How we greet and interact with other players/opponents to minimise contact with other participants in and around the football field. This would extend to not having to shake hands before and after the match as an example.
