Current Government Coronavirus (COVID-19) Guidelines

Notice to all attendees of the club premises

To pursue the aim of applying cautious best practice, and duly as a ‘members club’ who fall under the updated government rules at:

Face coverings: when to wear one, exemptions, and how to make your own – GOV.UK (

Hastings & St Leonards Chess Club Ltd are observing the current Government Coronavirus (COVID‑19) Guidelines and are currently requiring that the wearing of face masks be mandatory whilst on H&StLCC premises, unless a legitimate exemption applies.

We are also encouraging that all individuals attending the Club premises to have done a lateral flow test which gives a negative for COVID result, although we are not currently requesting evidence of this at this stage.

We ask that all attendees please also make sure that there is continuous ventilation to the room(s) you use at Club premises by opening the windows.

These current rules will of course also apply for events held on Club premises, thereby superseding  any guidelines formerly given by the organisers.
