Update on the Governments new COVID 19 regulation

UPDATE ON NEW GOVERNMENT REGULATIONS


EGREMONT MARKET HALL AND EGREMONT TOWN COUNCIL
NOW HAS ON DISPLAY THE QR POSTER IN THEIR FOYER AND
OFFICE FOYER – PLEASE SEE BELOW FOR INFORMATION.


The NHS COVID-19 app is currently being trialed and will launch on
Thursday 24 September in England and Wales, including QR check- in at
venues-


 QR codes will be an important way for NHS Test and Trace in
England and NHS Test, Trace, Protect in Wales to contact multiple
people if coronavirus outbreaks are identified in venues
Businesses across England and Wales like pubs, restaurant s,
hairdressers and cinemas are being urged to ensure they have NHS QR
code posters visible on entry so customers who have downloade d the new
NHS COVID-19 app can use their smartphones to easily check- in.
The move comes ahead of a national launch of the NHS COVID-19 app
across England and Wales on Thursday 24 September.
The government will be supporting business es and venues to display the
QR codes, which can be downloaded via a website to display as posters in
premises.


Following the launch of the new COVID-19 app, customers and visitors in
England will be able to check- in on entry with their phone instead of
filling out a check- in book or tool specific to a business. This will allow
NHS Test and Trace to contact customers with public health advice
should there be a COVID-19 outbreak.


In England, using QR codes will help businesses meet the new legal
requirement to record the contact details of customers, visitors and staff
on their premises.


With coronavirus cases rising in the UK in the last few weeks it is
essential business es capitalize on the benefits QR codes can bring to
protect themselves and their customers.


When someone enters a venue and scans an official QR poster, the venue
information will be logged on the user’s phone. This information will stay
on a user’s phone for 21 days and if during that time a coronavirus
outbreak is identified at a location, the venue ID in question will be sent
to all devices. The device will check if users have been at that location
and if the app finds a match, users may get an alert with advice on what
to do based on the level of risk.


The more people download and use the NHS COVID-19 app, the more it
will help us to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
With COVID-19 cases rising again across the country, the NHS COVID-19
app is a useful tool to have in the toolbox, alongside the other measures,
to combat the rise in infections.

Businesses are just one sector to be urged to use the NHS Test and Trace
system. Universities, hospitals, leisure premises, civic centres and
libraries will also be urged to display posters in communal areas such as
cafes where people are likely to congregate for more than 15 minutes
and in close proximity.

Karate students complete 100 katas charity challenge

On 25th October 1936, an historic meeting was held at a meeting hall in Naha, Okinawa with a number of prominent karate masters of the time. This assembly included the likes of Choki Motobu, Chojun Miyagi, Chosin Chibana, Chomo Hanashiro, Chotoku Kyan, Juhatsu Kiyoda and Shinpan Gusukuma. As well as other important discussions and decisions made regarding the potential future of the martial arts of the Island, it was during this meeting that the term “karate” (Empty Hand) was standardised.

Thus, World Karate Day (Karate No Hi) is held every year on October 25th to commemorate the history of karate and its exponential rise in popularisation across the globe. Part of these celebrations is the 100-Kata Challenge, which is inspired by the phrase 百 練 剛 (train hard 100 times). The challenge, led by a performance on Okinawa, serves to bring karate practitioners from around the world together and strengthen our universal family bond.

This year, our 100-Kata Challenge was held at the Market Hall in Egremont and we had over 30 members (various ages and ranks) take on the challenge to help raise money for our Community Fund. This was our largest group yet and the first year we invited our junior members to join us!

We had three groups running…The first was for junior members and for those who were new to the challenge. Their aim was to complete 100 x Naihanchi Kata. The second group was for veterans and those who wanted an extra challenge. Their objective was to add 10 x burpees after every set of 10 x Naihanchi Kata (100 in total). The third group consisted of those members who are travelling to Okinawa in a couple of weeks. Their task was to complete 4 x 23 kata within the curriculum, plus 8 x weapon kata (roshaku bo), totalling 100. Then the group finished off with 100 x burpees using Tabata intervals.
