Personal Health Assessment

Unlike participants and raceday workers, owners will not be required to complete a mandatory health screening questionnaire prior to attending the racecourse. This reflects the fact that owners will be on course for a shorter period, they will not interact with other raceday attendees, and are more able to maintain social distancing at all times.

However, to minimise risk for yourself and other owners, we ask that all owners assess their own heath ahead of attending every fixture. To do this, owners should ask themselves five questions:

1. Are you in a vulnerable person category, as defined by NHS guidance?

If yes, please consider carefully whether you should attend a race-meeting. If you need further advice, please contact your GP.

2.Do you have a fever, cough, and/or a loss of sense of smell or taste? These are symptoms of Covid-19 infection.

If yes, you cannot attend a racecourse until you have contacted NHS 111 and completed any testing or quarantine period.

3. Have you been contacted by NHS Test and Treat within the last 10 days and advised to self-isolate?

If yesyou cannot attend a racecourse.

4. Have you travelled from a country not on the UK Government exempt list in the last 14 days?

If yes, you cannot attend a racecourse until you have completed 14 days quarantine from the date of your return to the UK unless you are exempt from border rules in the UK.  

5. In the past 7 days have you had contact with any laboratory-confirmed Covid-19 patients when you were NOT wearing the appropriate PPE or in the past 14 days has any member of your household had symptoms of Covid-19?

If yes, you cannot attend a racecourse until you have contacted NHS 111 and completed any testing or quarantine period.

Owners are not required to submit their responses but must answer the questions truthfully and stay away from all racecourses if required.
