Local lockdown in Lution

July 25th, 2020

Following on from yesterday’s urgent email to clubs relating to the local lockdown in Luton, HCL would like to make clubs aware of the possible impact on junior coaching and matches scheduled to take place tomorrow and in the coming weeks. Currently no person/s that live in the borough of Luton ( adult or child) should be participating in cricket matches or travelling to them and should be following government guidelines. Clubs in the borough of Luton should also be taking a step back to Step 3 on the ECB roadmap. It is the joint responsibility of clubs and parents to be aware of this guidance, to establish who it impacts and to implement it, however disappointing this may be. Your support in this matter is very much appreciated. Dominic ChatfieldClub & Community Manager Hertfordshire Cricket Ltd Mobile: 07530 878930Email: dominic.chatfield@hertscricket.org l Website:www.hertscricket.org Statement form Cricket East  Following an increase in coronavirus cases in Luton, senior leaders and public health figures from Luton Borough Council have met with central government officials and a local lockdown is in place that has an impact on sport and physical activity, and as a result impacts local cricket.The council has urged residents to follow these guidelines:

  1. Stay at home as much as possible
  2. If meeting up with others, do so outside
  3. Do not meet in large groups – people should not gather outside in groups greater than six individuals (unless they are from the same household)
  4. Keep a 2 metre distance from people outside of your household at all times
  5. Wash your hands regularly
  6. Wear a face covering in all enclosed public spaces where it is difficult to keep 2 metres apart
  7. Book a test at www.nhs.uk/coronavirus and self-isolate if you have any symptoms, however mild
 With this in mind, Cricket East in line with the ECB now advise all Clubs, Leagues, and individual cricketers that live within the Borough of Luton to move back to Step 3, on the ECB’s official roadmap – attached to this email.This means games should not be played within the Borough of Luton, and any cricketers that play for clubs outside of the Borough should not travel to take part in cricket matches. Players can train under the restrictions included in step 3 of the roadmap e.g. in small groups of up to 6 – maintaining other ECB guidelines in place around training including social distancing, equipment sharing, and other hygiene measures. Cricket East and the ECB will continue to work closely with Local Authorities to review our stance on a weekly basis.Further details are available via the following linkhttps://m.luton.gov.uk/Page/Show/news/Pages/Luton-introduces-further-local-measures-in-fight-against-Covid-19.aspx?redirectToMobile=True
