COVID advice from Devon FA

Reminder of COVID guidelines from the County to all clubs

The Devon FA would like to remind all Leagues & clubs of the precautions clubs should be taking to comply with COVID guidelines. Leagues can now implement a 3 stage process against clubs who fail to comply with COVID guidance.

Organised  football activity across tiers 1 to 3 at present I is permitted but it is extremely important that clubs, players, coaches, match officials, league officials, volunteers, parents, carers, and facility providers continue to strictly follow both the  UK Governments’ latest guidance on COVID-19  and respective bespoke  guidance  documents  from  The FA.

All clubs are required to have a designated COVID-19 officer; complete and publish bespoke risk assessments and action plans; and continue to support  Test  and Trace  efforts.

We implore everyone to strictly follow the UK Government’s national Covid-19 restrictions.  Every participant must follow all FA and Government advice, this is crucial to ensure the safety of everyone involved in the game, and so we can continue to play. Any incidents of non-compliance will be reported to the relevant County FA for action. Please submit via your own parent County FA if the breach is for a club from a neighbouring County and they will forward it on and monitor further action.

We would like to thank the football community once again for its hard work, resilience and understanding during such an incredibly challenging period for both the game and wider society.
