NOTICE TO MAWA ON CORONAVIRUS

At this stage all MAWA events are ‘business as usual’, but we will keep you informed if there is any change to that status.

We ask all members to follow the guidelines below in order to keep our community as healthy as possible over the coming weeks and months.

We ask that you don’t attend Sunday runs, track and field meets, or any athletics training if you:
• have been in any of the declared zones in the past two weeks (currently Mainland China, Korea, Mongolia, Italy and Iran)
• have been in contact with anyone who has been travelling in those zones, or concerned you have been in contact with anyone who has Corona virus, or;
• you have the slightest dry cough or other flu-like symptoms.

Please take all precautions as much as possible to avoid the spreading of this virus and seek medical advice if you are concerned about your health and well-being. Please also avoid spitting during the course of the run.

In addition, we ask everyone to practice high levels of hygiene health (washing hands, sanitise etc) which are widely considered by health experts to be key to disease prevention and management.

We also ask that we avoid physical contact where possible. In our various medal ceremonies the presenter will not shake hands or hug or kiss award winners. Medal will be given by hand and not put around the recipient’s neck.

Keeping our community healthy over the next few months is paramount.
