Horse Racing Ireland have today published a 77 page document outlining safety protocols ahead of racing returning behind closed doors in Ireland next month.
Trainers, jockeys and racecourse staff will need to complete a health screening survey 24-hours before meetings while a thermal camera system will be used to check temperatures for all those attending on race days.
"We have worked closely with the IHRB and the Senior Medical Officer Dr Jennifer Pugh in strengthening our protocols ahead of a return to racing," HRI chief executive Brian Kavanagh said of the measures.
"The new system of health screening will include the registration of every attendee at every race meeting, from jockeys, trainers, IHRB staff, to racecourse staff, cleaning staff and so on.
"Everybody will be required to complete a baseline health screening questionnaire followed by a set of further screening questions every 24-hours before attendance at a race meeting.
"We have further strengthened the screening process with the installation of a thermal camera system to check attendees' temperatures. Nobody with an elevated reading will be allowed entry.
"The infection control policy is such that all surfaces will be regularly disinfected both before racing and throughout the race day, all indoor areas will be well ventilated, and only those essential to that area are present."
