BURTON Albion Community Trust (BACT) has updated information to all participants in light of the latest advice over coronavirus.

In line with communication from the FA, Premier League, EFL and Barclays FA Women’s Super League and FA Women’s Championship to postpone the professional game in England until April  3 at the earliest, and the government’s move from the ‘containment’ to ‘delay’ phase of their approach, Burton Albion Community Trust is suspending all delivery of sessions to all vulnerable groups until that date with immediate effect.

This will include all disability and health sessions which deliver activity to groups of older adults and to anyone with underlying health conditions as our duty of care remains paramount to this situation and we are acting pro-actively with this interest in mind.

The sessions affected are currently the following:
• Extra Time Hub
• Sing
• Over 50s fitness
• Care Home sessions (Uttoxeter)
• Walking Football
• Active Recovery
• Able Too Albion
• FIT Brewers
• Junior/Adult Disability
• Powerchair Football
• Bereavement help point

Individuals on these programmes will still be able to be supported by BACT staff members where needed.

BACT is assessing the status of all other sessions and advises all participants to follow government guidelines and not attend any session if they feel unwell, are at high-risk with a pre-disposed condition or have had any contact with anyone known to have been in contact with the virus.

Our fixtures in the CEFA League have been suspended by the EFL and we will circulate information on any other leagues when it becomes applicable.

All programmes which are not on the list above are running as scheduled but we reiterate that we advise all participants to be sensible, cautious and follow government and NHS guidelines. 

Anyone requiring further information should call 01283 246207 or email bactadmin@burtonalbionct.org
