Q: Why in championship season would any GAA club / manager willingly set every last team member up as a bound list of close contacts, when delta variant is rampant on the island?

A: they’d need to be an ignoramus to think more can be gained from doing this than not doing this.

Yep 100 %, it would be utter madness. I enjoy the team talks on the field. Less f+cking about screaming & roaring in a dressing room.

not at the minute def not, be a disaster for clubs. when the weather changes id be for teams who have to travel any decent distance being able to use showers in small numbers if they wish, that'd be the only one id be thinking it acceptable or required

GAA clubs should be able to manage this, drop your gear and  walk out, no team talks etc, you then can shower afterwards, most clubs have 4 changing rooms, for adults games you could give two changing rooms to each team.

Aye we should.

In reality this means either a couple of volunteer Covid officer pit bulls falling out with anyone who abuses your list of acceptable uses (and putting everyone involved in bad form), or else everyone just doing whatever they please; including how they address close contacts when the question is posed.

Thank you. But no.

I saw someone on Twitter making the point that girls should be allowed in to change into and out of their jerseys for the match. I can see their point on that to be fair.

Jesus you’d like to think that goes without saying already. Of course changing rooms should be open, how you expect lads to drive home soaked and sweating after a game, in many cases for probably the guts of an hour I dont know.

Because the alternative is that anytime one of their teammates (which might be 40 men) gets Covid, then they’re deemed a close contact.

I’d drive home from anywhere sooner than spend 10 days in isolation, let alone in isolation during championship season.

Especially for those vaccinated.

Only thing is I suppose its that close contacts don't self isolate anymore if they are double vaccinated. Not sure if that's the case in the south too?

So you'd need a Vaccine passport to get into the changing room? Keep them closed.....less confusion.

Will they ever open again ?
When would it be acceptable to open them ?
