COMPETITOR PRE-EVENT HEALTH DECLARATION
PLEASE RESPOND BY MIDNIGHT THURS 8TH JULY
I confirm that if I or anyone in my household or bubble has tested positive for Covid-19 or been unwell with any symptoms of Covid-19 in the 10 days up to Saturday 10th July I will follow NHS and public health guidance on self-isolation and not attend the event. Symptoms include:
A high temperature
A new, continuous cough
A loss of, or change to, my sense of smell or taste
Since January 2020, if you have tested positive for Covid-19:
If you were hospitalised due to Covid-19, you should undergo a form of health screening prior to taking part in a triathlon or multipart. This screening is best led by a doctor with specialist training in sports medicine. However other doctors may feel competent to make decisions on your fitness to complete and to decide any appropriate investigations that might be required.
If you were not hospitalised due to Covid-19, but self-isolated having tested positive or shown symptoms at any time, you are also recommended to undergo a form of screening.
If you have felt entirely well during the pandemic, you are not routinely recommended to undergo health screening, but it is something to be considered as part of your normal health monitoring for the health conscious competitor.
Your GP should be able to guide you on what level of screening you may require, and who is the best person to assist you in the process.
I also confirm that in the light of recent restrictions on movement I am suitably fit to take part in the event.
