Novel coronavirus (COVID-19) guidance


The Following Guidance has been issued by Swim England


The welfare of all our athletes, coaches, workforce and volunteers is of paramount importance.

This communication is designed to inform, rather than alarm, and contains relevant links to the most up-to-date guidance from the Government and Public Health England regarding novel coronavirus (COVID-19).

  • The Government has issued advice around travel to and from certain areas as the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) situation develops. Please read the latest advice here. This is updated regularly.
  • It is our expectation that Swim England members will comply with the latest Government and NHS guidance. This can be found on the Public Health England website. If you feel unwell, please call NHS 111 for advice.
  • Swim England will be continuing to plan for our events as normal but we will be following Government guidance and assessing risk as appropriate. We will be issuing specific guidance regarding forthcoming Swim England events as necessary to those due to attend. 
  • We would advise clubs to also carry out appropriate risk assessments and comply with all Government advice when planning any future activities. 

Many thanks for your cooperation.
