On Tuesday 21 December, the First Minister provided an update to the Scottish Parliament on COVID-19 and related restrictions. This reiterated the increasing challenge posed by the Omicron variant.
As part of the update, the First Minister also confirmed enhanced measures will be put in place for up to three weeks from 26th December for large scale events and indoor contact sport for adults.
Further to this announcement, we regrettably must confirm that all indoor sports club training sessions initially scheduled to resume in Strathclyde Sport week commencing 10th January 2022 will now be postponed until w/c 17th January. These sessions will be removed from the Club Booking System, and we ask that you please update your members with this important information.
We understand that this will come as a disappointment to many, as the return of club training following the festive break is always greeted with the highest anticipation by students. However, the health and wellbeing of everyone across the University and country is paramount.
The Sports Union and Students’ Union is closed now until Monday 10th January. Please note that we are closely monitoring guidance from the Scottish Government and sportscotland in relation to COVID-19 and the Omicron variant. The Students’ Union will provide more information on semester two operations in the w/c 5th January. Please keep an eye on our social media for the latest updates. The most recent updates from the University of Strathclyde are available at www.strath.ac.uk/coronavirus, sportscotland on www.sportscotland.org.uk/covid-19. and Scottish Student Sport here.
In the meantime, we look forward to welcoming students back to sports club training in the Strathclyde Sport venue as soon as we are given the green light to do so.
