Government confirmed today that our area is formally moving into Tier Three after midnight on Friday, which automatically means that the public can’t be admitted to Ascot on Saturday.
We have consulted with Public Health England and our Safety Advisory Group and the advice received is that we should not to open to the public tomorrow. Therefore, we will not be admitting the public for Friday’s racing.
Cases in the south of England have risen over 40% in the last week and the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead is now in a very high risk area.
We are sorry that we have to deliver this news to people looking forward to coming racing this weekend.
