Coronavirus (COVID-19): sport and leisure facilities

Review and future development

This guidance extends until further notice. It sets out both our current advice and guidance for the sport and leisure sector in helping to handle COVID-19.

All of this will be evidence led.

Easing restrictions will not mean returning to how things were before the virus. Physical distancing, hand hygiene, and other critical behaviours will be essential in each area to ensure public and workforce confidence.  

This guidance will be updated and reviewed as required in consultation with the sector’s employers and unions.  Please ensure you use the latest version. 

It is for individual employers and facility operators in conjunction with trade union or workforce representatives to decide how best to successfully adopt and adapt guidance for their individual circumstances.
