Whilst restrictions nationally and locally are gradually being eased, it remains the case that infection rates are high. Consequently, any member who is feeling ill, displaying COVID-19 symptoms, has received a positive test result in the past 10 days or has been instructed to isolate must NOT participate in u3a meetings, trips and events. Any member who subsequently tests positive (within 7 days of attending) is asked to advise their group convenor(s) or meeting organisers so that all other attendees may be informed.
