Cycling Ireland Covid-19 Updated Guidance
By Press Release
20 Aug 2020,

Email this article
The Cabinet has agreed a number of new restrictions aimed at curbing the spread of coronavirus.

The measures were announced by Taoiseach Micheál Martin on Tuesday, August 18, effective immediately and will remain in place until 13 September, at the earliest. The key implications for Cycling Ireland approved events and activities are as follows.

Sporting events and races can continue to take place behind closed doors. In the cycling context, the new restrictions mean cycling races and events can go ahead but that spectators are not permitted at these cycling races and/or events.

Groups exercising outdoors should be limited to 15 people, including club training sessions.

Gatherings, including social gatherings, before or after events must be avoided. Participants should practice 2 metre physical distancing before and after events.

The cycling community must continue to remain vigilant, strictly following public health advice including physical distancing, hand hygiene and cough etiquette.

In addition, Cycling Ireland has launched a COVID-19 Liaison Officer Training Course to support clubs in the return to training. On successful completion of the course, the club’s designated “COVID-19 Liaison Officer” will receive a certificate of completion.

As a further support for clubs, Cycling Ireland’s online contact tracking/booking system is available for managing club training activities and training rides. The easy-to-use online system allows a ride leader to register all those attending a club activity from their smartphone.

Clubs must ensure participants are registered for contact tracing purposes and have completed a self-assessment form.

Sport Ireland Updated Public Health Measures – Sport & Physical Activity

Sport facilities can remain open.

Sporting events and matches can continue to take place behind closed doors.

Gatherings, including social gatherings, before or after events must be avoided. Participants should practice 2 metre physical distancing before and after events, during breaks in play, on the sidelines and team huddles should be avoided.

Gyms/leisure centres/swimming pools/exercise and dance studios can remain open with strict distancing and other appropriate protective measures in place.

Exercise and dance classes should be limited to 6 people and observe physical distancing rules.

Groups exercising outdoors should be limited to 15 people, including training sessions. There should be no mixing between groups.

It is recommended that those responsible for managing these facilities should have completed a risk assessment before reopening to manage the public health risk for their customers, attendees, participants, and staff.

The assessment should consider the risk factors for getting COVID-19, that is Distance, Activity, Time and Environment, and include controls such as managed entry, improved hygiene facilities, and regular cleaning to limit these.

Facilities should observe physical distancing guidelines and apply the public health checklist to their operation. Guidance on mass gatherings should also be followed.

Facilities reopening with a return of staff should apply the Return to Work Safely Protocol. This has been designed to support employers and workers to put measures in place that will prevent the spread of COVID-19 in the workplace.
