Following the Prime Minister’s announcement earlier this week, the Scout Association has updated the current guidance for the delivery of Scouting in England. We move to a GREEN state of readiness but from Thursday 20th January.
This means: All activities can resume for members who live in England. Residential activities and international travel may take place.
Group sizes and limitations:
- All non-residential activities (including young people or Scout Network members): No limit on group size, although all activities must be able to safely manage the risk of transmission of COVID and, if this is not possible, they must not take place.
- Residential activities: Nights away activities may take place, more details in the planning COVID-safe Nights Away guidance.
- International travel: Visits abroad may resume but must follow the FCDO travel advice and still manage the transmission of COVID and ensuring that the trips are safe and accessible. Consideration for the changing government requirements must be built into the trip plans prior to approval being given locally for the trips to go ahead.
For adult only activities please follow the government guidance for social gathering in your jurisdiction.
You can check the latest readiness levels and obtain all the latest guidance and advice on The Scouts website.
