The GAA issued an updated version of the Safe Return to Play document. Please note our link above is up to date and references the latest version.
There following changes occurred in the new document:
Changes to healthcare questionnaire frequency: It was previously stated that the healthcare questionnaire would need to be filled out prior to every training session. This has been changed.

It is the responsibility of the individual to notify their team Covid representative should there be a change in circumstances prior to subsequent sessions.
Temperature monitoring. It was previously stated that the club would be responsible for temperature checks. This responsibility has been removed – it is the responsibility of individuals to monitor their own temperature prior to training.
