COVID-19 FAQs 26.03.21 (ecb.co.uk)

Clubs are required to play attention to the following.

1. Clubs and venues are required to carry out a COVID Risk Assessment and to put in place control measures to limit the transmission of COVID-19 during organised cricket.

As in 2020, the Liverpool Competition requires all clubs to revisit their Risk Assessments, amend them if necessary, and confirm to the League Secretary in writing, that a 2021 Risk Assessment has been completed and is available to all members.

2.  Is car sharing permitted for sport and physical activity? 

No. Car sharing is not permitted with someone from outside your household or your support bubble unless your journey is undertaken for an exempt reason. Sport and physical activity is not an exempt reason, so you cannot car share for sport and physical activity.

3. It is the club’s responsibility to ensure that their overseas player, on arrival in the country, has undertaken all self isolating and testing requirements as appropriate under Government Guidance and confirm to the League Secretary, in writing, that this has been undertaken.
