Protection concept for training operations
from April 20, 2021
Translated version, the German version is valid in case of discrepancies.
A. NUMBER OF PARTICIPANTS AND ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS
- The group must not be larger than 15 persons per hall, including the trainer.
- If a 3-compartment gym is available, 3 groups of 15 people each can train, provided that:
- the walls are lowered
- and there must be no mixing of groups.
- Singles may be played/trained without a mask.
- Doubles play/half court drills are only allowed with mask.
- Coach always with mask
- Compliance with the existing protection concept
Exception: For persons born in 2001 and younger, these restrictions do not apply.
B. Keep distance
Basically: A distance of 1.5 metres must be maintained both with and without the mask.
C. General mask obligation with few exceptions
In buildings of the sports facilities operated by the Sports Department of the City of Zurich, masks will be compulsory for all persons aged 12 and over. This means: all participating persons at age 12 or older enter the buildings of the Blumenfeld and Ruggächerhalle wearing a mask.
On the badminton court, the compulsory masks will then continue to apply to doubles players (Exceptions: Family members and persons born in 2001 and younger). You must bring your own masks, as well as a suitable device for stowing the mask (such as a letter envelope labelled with your name).
D. Dressing rooms
For adults over 20 years, a minimum of 6 m2 per person applies. Minimal 5 persons are always allowed, so even if the dressing room is smaller than 30 m2.
Blumenfeldhalle: Since we would have too many men when changing between two units, the dressing rooms in the Blumenfeldhalle will remain closed for men.
Ruggächerhalle: In the Ruggächerhalle the above-mentioned regulations apply. Please use both dressing rooms.
Juniors: There are no restrictions.
E. Procedure for positive Sars-CoV2 test
Swiss Badminton recommends that training/competition/tournament participants get tested regularly. If a test is positive, the process defined by the BAG applies. Since follow-up is not always fast enough, we expect our club members to act responsibly (see also separate info).
F. The following five principles are mandatory for training:
1. Only come into training without symptoms
Persons with symptoms of illness are NOT allowed to participate in training. They stay at home or are placed in isolation and discuss the further procedure with their family doctor.
2. Minimise duration and number of contacts
3. Wash or disinfect your hands thoroughly
Washing hands plays a crucial role in hygiene. If you wash your hands thoroughly with soap before and after training, you will protect yourself and your surroundings. We use the disinfection device provided every time we enter one of the halls.
4. We keep attendance lists
Close contacts between persons must be able to be expelled for 14 days at the request of the health authority. In order to facilitate contact tracing, the club maintains attendance lists for all training sessions. A person is appointed who is responsible for the completeness and correctness of the list and who makes it available to the Corona representative in an agreed form (cf. point 5). The form in which the list is maintained (doodle, app, Excel, etc.) is at the discretion of the association.
