While this advice remains in place, GAA club matches and training will continue as usual. If any person feels themselves to be especially at risk or for any other reason would prefer not to participate in games or training, then, of course, they are fully entitled to step aside while there is a risk of transmission. Players are advised to bring their own water bottles to games and training.

· Avoid sharing or borrow anyone else’s helmet
· if you feel unwell during training/match please notify a coach immediately.
· Avoid shaking hands post-match during this time. Use the elbow touch or offer 3 cheers to the opposing team as an alternative.

· Teach the kids and yourself to wash your hands as long as singing happy birthday to yourself.
