COVID-19: update to face mask guidance from Motorsport UK

Email received this evening:

Release: 17/09/2020

Following our previous communications, we are writing to you with further clarification on the use of face masks and coverings at Motorsport UK events.

Since the last update on Monday 14 September, we have engaged with our community including stakeholders from all disciplines. We have also received important feedback from a recent Motorsport UK Webinar which saw over 400 senior officials from across the sport discuss the issue and the ongoing evolution of the sport. From the consultation, a further guidance chart has been produced to clarify the usage of masks and coverings in the specific areas within a motorsport event.

We need to once again reiterate that motorsport needs to be in the best possible position to withstand the ever-changing conditions. However, we can only continue while we playing its part in maintaining the safest possible environment, as we have all been doing so far. We must look after our community and most vulnerable and prevent the transmission of the virus and its impact on our sport.

The revised measures are effective from Thursday 17 September and further details will be found in an updated version of our COVID-19 Q&A, available on the COVID-19 section of our website in due course.
