Easing of Covid-19 Restrictions in the Republic of Ireland

Dear Members,

As of the Monday 26th April 2021 IABA affiliated clubs in the Republic of Ireland (ROI) who have successfully completed the required Covid-19 ‘Protect Yourself at all Times’ protocols and procedures can return to outdoor non-contact training of members under the age of 18.

In preparation for this date the IABA team in consultation with medical experts and various stakeholders have updated the Protect Yourself at All Times: Safe Return to Training Membership pack to help assist clubs wishing to reopen on this date.

Please find attached guidance document which explains the process clubs will need to complete along with other applicable template documents to assist clubs in this process. All clubs wishing to reopen MUST complete and return the club declaration document to sally@iaba.ie. Once the completed attached document verifying that the club has taken all relevant steps has been received via email, the club will in turn receive a confirmation email from IABA head office confirming that they can reopen. *PLEASE NOTE YOU MUST BE IN RECEIPT OF YOUR PERMISSION TO REOPEN LETTER FROM THE IABA MEDICAL COMMISSIONER BEFORE REOPENING YOUR CLUB.

Please note our measures and procedures are under constant review and updated as advice from government, health authorities and governing bodies evolves in line with the gradual lifting of social restrictions. The status of the current COVID-19 pandemic is an ever changing and an evolving situation and these guidelines will, at all times, be in line with and guided by Government and Public Health policy.

Any queries in relation to this communication should be submitted to sally@iaba.ie.
