Leicester-Shire and Rutland Sport – Updated Coronavirus Statement

After reviewing the government advice issued on 16 March 2020, Leicester-Shire and Rutland Sport has made the decision to cancel activities it is responsible for delivering for the next six weeks.

The health and safety of our participants, volunteers, instructors and wider sporting community is our main priority and to avoid the spread of Coronavirus we will follow the government advice to move away from organising mass gatherings and for the public to avoid all non-essential contact.

This means cancelling forthcoming school sport competitions, workplace health programmes and other events for the next six weeks. LRS is aware of the rapidly changing environment and will keep this decision under constant review as we continue monitor the latest advice from government and Public Health England.

Finally, please continue to follow the government's guidance on how to prevent the spread of Coronavirus, by reviewing the advice provided here
