Memo – Coronavirus (Issued on 10/7/20)

As the coronavirus (COVID-19) infections becoming intensified in the last few days, we would like to remind all bowlers to take the following precautionary measures before, during and after a game.  Please note that our primary aim remains to protect the health and safety of all of our players and staff.

–          Do not engage in a game if you are directly or indirectly related to any infected/suspected cases, or feeling unwell.

–          Go to visit a doctor if you are feeling unwell.

–          Always maintain a good personal hygiene:

  • Wear a mask if you think it is necessary
  • Wash hands and/or use of hand sanitizer regularly
  • Avoid touching your face, particularly eyes, nose and mouth, with unwashed hands
  • Cough or sneeze into a tissue and wash your hands afterwards
  • Avoid close contact with others, such as touching or shaking hands
  • Clean bowl surfaces with hand sanitizer, antibacterial wipes or a cleaning spray

To avoid the gathering of a big crowd, it is not recommended to bring spectators to your game.

Given the current situation, it is okay for a player not to shake hand prior to or after game, but use an alternative gesture to greet their opponents.  We will review such arrangement in due course.

HKLBA will continue to monitor the situation closely and provide regular updates on it.  The Hong Kong Government also provides regular updates through the Health Department and you can reach their website for the latest information.

We wish all bowlers enjoy their bowling while maintaining their good health.
