Central Council Position Statement / Guidance on COVID-19 (5 May 2020)
This position statement issued by the Central Council deserves as wide a circulation as possible. While I am sure we are all looking forward to a time when we can safely resume ringing it would be a mistake to assume that this is going to happen in the short term. Ringers are sensible and intelligent people and are more aware of the risks associated with ringing than anyone else and I am sure will take all necessary precautions to ensure the safety of themselves and other ringers in accordance with the unique conditions of their own towers and ringing rooms.
I would really like the Guild to resume its normal activities, but I also want all our members to be there when this happens, so please think of yourselves and your fellow ringers, and the other people who use the buildings within which we ring. It is more important than anything that we all come through this safely.
Meanwhile I hope you and your families all keep safe and well,
