Precautionary Measures Against The Risk and Spreading of COVID-19 - for Polo and Riding Community

 

We refer our Notice of 21 March 2020 on the subject matter of PRECAUTIONARY MEASURES AGAINST THE RISK AND SPREADING OF COVID-19, sent out to members and in particular, Point 3 which states:

 

“Anyone who has travelled overseas or is in contact with a person issued with a Leave of Absence (LOA), or Stay-Home Notice (SHN) and Quarantine Order (QO) within the last 14 days is strongly advised to exercise social responsibility and refrain from visiting the club for the safety and health of others. Those feeling unwell (e.g. who have symptoms of flu, cough, sore throat or runny nose) are requested to leave the club immediately to seek medical assistance or to stay home to rest.”

The Committee, having received feedback from a number of members seeking further clarity as to who would fall under Point 3 of the said Notice, has decided that polo and riding members are:

- allowed to ride, exercise or stick & ball their horses, but must observe appropriate social distancing, wear riding gloves and practice good hygiene at all times during and after the activity as outlined in current Ministry of Health (MOH) guidelines concerning the corona virus situation. The respective grooms will tack up your horse and shall leave it within its stable for you to take out by yourself and tighten its girth, mount and dismount unassisted and then to return your horse to the stable. 

- allowed to visit the Club but must observe the appropriate social distancing and observe good hygiene practices as outlined in the MOH guidelines.

- to refrain from playing polo during the entire fourteen (14) day period from the day you returned to Singapore (if this was after 20 March 2020, 2359 hours), or from the day the person/persons you are living with i.e. family, friends or partners, began serving their QO or SHN.

Please note that the said Notice of 21 March 2020 and the above Points a), b) and c), apply to all members including those who are riding or playing polo, as well as to all employees such as, polo professionals, riding instructors and freelance instructors and professionals.

We would especially like to thank those members who, out of a sense of social responsibility, volunteered to withdraw from participating in the polo tournament on 21 & 22 March 2020.

Precautionary Measures Against the Risk and Spreading of COVID-19
21 March 2020
 
With the increased number of imported cases of COVID-19 in Singapore, there have been a couple of clubs that have temporarily shut down due to confirmed cases of COVID-19 amongst their community. The Singapore Polo Club will be implementing strict precautionary measures as per the latest advisories from the Ministry of Health (MOH). 
 
1. Prior to entry into the club, temperature screening and filling up of the Health & Travel Declaration form is compulsory for everyone. A QR code embedded form or hard copy declaration form is readily available at the guard house, front reception, polo & riding offices and the jackpot room.
 
2. Anyone who is serving a Leave of Absence (LOA), Stay-Home Notice (SHN) and Quarantine Order (QO) will be asked to leave the premises immediately.
 
3. Anyone who has travelled overseas or is in contact with a person issued with a Leave of Absence (LOA), or Stay-Home Notice (SHN) and Quarantine Order (QO) within the last 14 days is strongly advised to exercise social responsibility and refrain from visiting the club for the safety and health of others. Those feeling unwell (e.g. who has symptoms of flu, cough, sore throat or runny nose) are requested to leave the club immediately to seek medical assistance or to stay home to rest.
 
4. To better monitor the entry of members during this period, we will be locking the back gate leading to RDA with immediate effect. This is to ensure members and guests enter the club via the main entrance for compulsory temperature screening and filling up of the Health & Travel Declaration form.
 
The objective of the above measures is to limit any potential risk of spreading the COVID-19 to our members and staff and to ensure a safe and healthy environment for everyone in the club. We will be closely monitoring updates and guidelines from MOH on the COVID-19 situation via https://www.moh.gov.sg/covid-19
 
We seek everyone’s cooperation on being socially responsible and to refrain from visiting the club if unwell and to continue practicing good personal hygiene at all times.
 
Thank you.
