COVID-19 Restrictions

To clarify the position with regard to insurance cover under the Howden/Hiscox insurance product, we can confirm:

  • clubs/societies are insured for events provided the most up-to-date government advice and any local restrictions guidance is followed. Risk assessments should be undertaken specific to your particular circumstances to enable you to decide if it is appropriate to proceed and in so doing you are compliant with current government advice. All other activities will be covered subject to adherence to current regulations and the rule of six. If compliance is not possible the activity must cease.
  • for trainers, in receipt of payment for your activity you fall under the business exemption of the current regulations and as such you are able to continue providing social distancing is managed.
