The ACU has sent out a warning to people that travel, work, attend or compete in events to stay away if they have flu-like symptoms.
While just about every other sport in the UK has been suspended, as of now, the ACU British Motocross Championship is still on. The ACU says they will publish additional updates as and when necessary in line with UK government guidelines.
Here’s the press release in full:
Following yesterday’s announcement by the Prime Minister that the UK has now entered the ‘Delayed’ phase of the Coronavirus, the ACU advise the following measures which should be implemented with immediate effect:
– All meetings and seminars due to be held at ACU House over the next 4-week period will be cancelled/postponed, but, we will continue to monitor government advice.
– Centres/Clubs to review their own policy with regards meetings/seminars
– Officials licences which have, or are about to expire, will be extended until the end of the year.
The ACU recognise many of our members and those associated with the sport are often involved in close contact with others when travelling, working, meeting or attending and competing in events and we continue to closely monitor government advice around events and public gatherings and will publish additional updates as and when necessary in line with UK government guidelines.
Our main priority and commitment is to the health, safety and security of everyone who represents our organisation. As such we would respectfully ask anyone who has any cold or flu like symptoms not to attend any such events/meetings.
