Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by a newly discovered coronavirus. Most people infected with the COVID-19 virus will experience mild to moderate respiratory illness and recover without requiring special treatment. Older people, and those with underlying medical problems like cardiovascular disease, diabetes, chronic respiratory disease, and cancer are more likely to develop serious illness which may ultimately result in death.
The COVID-19 virus spreads primarily through droplets of saliva or discharge from the nose when an infected person coughs or sneezes.

It is RMYC Policy to comply with Government Instructions and Covid-19 advice available at https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/covid-19-response-spring-2021.

Accordingly the following precautions are to be adhered to:
