Covid-19 and Jersey Hockey ("JHL")
Below you will see the requirements set out by JHL for all members and their households.
Some members have asked why JHL's policy is more stringent than the Government's in respect of its isolation policy.
We are not privy to the Government's consideration when setting their policy but suspect their rationale includes:-
1) Keeping ALL Islanders safe
2) Ensuring continuity of service within businesses and the economy generally
3) Adopting a policy which can be enforced
JHL's rationale is similar and because we are a smaller community (approx 600 members) we can adopt a more targeted approach. Given we are a smaller, more interconnected community, our stricter rules are there to allow the sport to continue without risk of shutdown because of a Covid case in our facility. Please remember many sports have not had the same enjoyment of playing as hockey has and your board wish to protect this.
As you will be aware, various matches involving Victoria College, Caesareans and other junior teams have already had to be postponed due to Covid within those squads and the isolation rules in place. Such teams play against and/or alongside mixed age teams and are often supported by their family so we need to ensure that our matches, and post match hospitality within the Clubhouse, do not result in incidences of Covid within the hockey community - which would lead to a general shut down of hockey operations and the closure of the Clubhouse.
There will be members who do consider the extra measures strict and we are sorry to inconvenience them but we ask for their patience and support for these regulations. We have already had two visits from the States Police so it is important that we can demonstrate that we have policies in place and are responsible members of Jersey's society. This may help should the Government consider stricter lock down provisions themselves.
We want to ensure that hockey remains a safe environment for members, their friends and family so whilst you may consider JHL's approach strict, please support the current rules for everyone's long term benefit.
