Testing times: Gregory O’Kane says clubs may have to alter schedules

Among all the chat of the 'new normal', one novelty that has been thrown up by the Coronavirus pandemic is an even more unenviable task than previously thought possible in the GAA - that of Covid Supervisor within a club.

As detailed in the GAA's roadmap back to training and playing, the Covid Supervisor will be responsible for:

  • Distributing and collating player and backroom Health Questionnaires before each session or game;
  • Ensuring sanitising of facilities is completed before and after each training session or game (eg toilets, door handles etc);
  • Maintaining records of attendees;

They will also keep health questionnaires from each player and support staff where they detail their current health prior to each session and game. Each form has to have a recorded temperature on the questionnaire and clubs should have a facility for taking temperatures.
