THE MILITARY VEHICLE TRUST
Updated MVT Covid19 lockdown policy as from July the 14th 2020.
As a charity we have to abide by Government advice and keep the safety of our members and the public paramount. Although lockdown restrictions are changing regularly, the core guidance has not changed the MVT ‘s existing policy regarding the organisation of Area meetings and public events - they continue to be suspended until further notice.
However, in the light of some of the changes in the restrictions, members are able to attend outdoor events organised by recognised institutions like Museums, Councils etc., where Risk Assessments have been made and Covid19 Government Guidelines are adhered to. This also applies to road runs and below you will see the MVT’s recommendations to keep the public and you safe.
We all know our vehicles are high profile and draw immediate attention where ever they go, so let’s behave responsibly and follow the MVT’s Code of Conduct.
MVT guidelines for those taking part in outdoor events (14/07/2020).
If you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 (a cough, temperature or lack of taste or smell) do not participate in the event.
If you develop symptoms after the event follow government track and trace guidance and notify the organiser.
Follow government guidelines regarding good hygiene including regular hand washing.
Observe the Government recommendation to socially distance keeping 2m apart or if not possible 1m+ alongside mitigating measures such as wearing a face covering and not facing each other.
On a road run, keep stops to a minimum.
Vehicles should be crewed by people from the same household.
Observe any Local Lockdown regulations or National Restrictions that override this guidance.
Members should carry facemasks, disposable gloves and hand sanitiser to be used in an emergency or to comply with guidance at establishments visited.
The organiser must keep a record of the name and contact details for each person participating for use in event of tracking and tracing being required, and those details are to be kept in accordance with the MVT Data Protection Policy.
All participants must be mindful that they are representing the MVT and therefore the MVT’s Code of Conduct must be observed.
The arrangements for the easing of the lockdown and the related Government guidance are being updated frequently. Please check for the current Government guidance and any local arrangements at all times.
