LATEST FA GUIDANCE FOR NON-ELITE FOOTBALL IN STEP 3 OF THE GOVERNMENT'S ROADMAP
The NHS COVID-19 App - QR Code
We want to draw your attention to the Government’s recently updated guidance on test and trace, and specifically a new section on the use of QR codes at Sports Venues eg May and Bakers Sports Ground.
The NHS COVID-19 app has a feature that allows users to quickly and easily ‘check in’ at a sports or other venues by scanning the code.
The information stays on the user’s phone. In England, people who choose to ‘check in’ using the official NHS QR code do not need to provide their contact details to the venue.
If there is an outbreak associated with a venue, a message will be sent to the relevant app users with the necessary public health advice.
This will help to avoid the reintroduction of lockdown measures and support the country to return to, and maintain, a more normal way of life.
NB The App can only be downloaded to smartphones
Copies of the Daggers Ladies and Girls FC App will be available to scan at all home matches. Please note that each team has a different code and if any supporters use the facilities in the May and Bakers Clubhouse they must also scan the M&B QR Code. At away games, the opposition teams will be displaying their own code which has to be scanned by visitors.

Latest Update from Sport England
Latest government guidance
People can go outside more than once a day for exercise alone or with their household, with up to five people from outside their household providing they observe social distancing, or with their and one other household indoors or outdoors, providing members of different households follow social distancing guidelines.
Most outdoor and indoor sport and physical activity facilities can reopen if those responsible for them feel ready to do so and if they can do so safely following government guidelines.
This includes basketball and tennis courts, playing spaces like golf courses (public and private), playing fields, watersports, playgrounds, outdoor and indoor pools, outdoor and indoor gyms and leisure centres.
Team sports can also restart when each sport's national governing body has published a government-approved action plan and related guidance on playing safely.
While social gatherings of more than six people in England are banned, the government’s confirmed that organised sports and activities that have been through return to play protocols can continue, with one exception.
From 24 September, people aged 18 and over playing indoor team sports must adhere to the 'rule of six', which means playing in a group of no more than six people.
Sports and activities that have been through return to play protocols can continue to use this guidance, while adhering to the 'rule of six' for indoor adult team sport.
This change does not apply to children aged under 18, and people can also continue to use leisure facilities, including gyms and pools - classes within these venues can continue as they are now. People should not go to these venues socially in groups of more than six.
Outdoor sports played formally and under government-approved guidance, plus outdoor sport and physical activity events following event-organiser guidance, can continue.
That's because these sports and activities have stringent plans in place to reduce the risk of Covid-19, and because these venues are classed as Covid-secure given the measures they’ve introduced. The importance of sport and physical activity to people’s physical health and mental wellbeing has also been recognised by the government.
