Unfortunately today, we have received notification from The Scouts UK (England), with regards to a change in our Covid Readiness Level as detailed below.
Following the Prime Minister’s announcement at the weekend, the Government have confirmed there will be some changes to the way we can deliver Scouting activities within England only.
Taking effect today, 2 December 2021, the youth sector moves to the Yellow readiness level and the following changes apply:
- Anyone aged 11+ must wear a face covering when indoors, unless they are exempt (and we recommend the use of known visible methods for people to display if they are exempt).
- International travel should be reviewed in line with the latest Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office travel advice with the awareness that the requirements/restrictions may change at any time. This includes being aware of Government restrictions on travel (both within the UK and in the destination nation), checking with insurance providers that appropriate cover is in place given the changing Government restrictions, and that appropriate measures are in place for quarantine upon return.
We don’t know how long these restrictions will last but we will continue to update you as things change.
