Update on Coronavirus: BEDSA 2020
Ahead of the British Ethnic Diversity Sports Awards being held this Saturday (14th March), we wanted to reach out to attendees regarding the recent developments with Covid-19 (Wuhan novel Coronavirus) in the UK.
The event will go ahead as normal, should there be any further updates we will be in touch again.
London Hilton on Park Lane has issued us with the following statement:
“We are actively monitoring updates from the World Health Organization (WHO) and our National Health Service (NHS) and responding based on the best advice of medical professionals and public health authorities. Given the evolving nature, Hilton has implemented specific training to ensure the safety of our Guests and Team Members.”
The wellbeing of all our guests is important and we are committed to create a clean and hygienic environment for you all. At the venue, we will be ensuring that adequate hand washing facilities, hand sanitiser and anti-bacterial wipes are made readily available. Find out more on our website.
If you are experiencing any respiratory-based symptoms or have visited a high-risk area in the last 14 days, we expressly suggest that you opt out of attending the event, and you can let us know by responding to this email.
If you are unwell and cannot make the event but still want to know what's happening, don't forget you can follow the event live on Twitter, on @BEDSAofficial.
Considering the wellbeing of our guests, NHS 111 has an online service that can tell you if you need medical help and advise you what to do.
Use this service if:
- You think you might have coronavirus
- In the last 14 days you've been to a country or area with a high risk of coronavirus
- You've been in close contact with someone with coronavirus
To access the online service go to https://111.nhs.uk/covid-19 or you can call directly on 111.
We look forward to seeing you on Saturday!
