Additional restrictions easing in England from 19 July
15 July 2021
|LATEST UPDATE FROM HQ:
Following the Government announcement on Monday, we’re pleased to update that from 19 July there will be some changes to the way you can deliver Scouting activities within England.
The Government have confirmed the following changes will apply whilst the youth sector remains in the Yellow readiness level throughout the summer:
The readiness level table has been updated to reflect these changes and assist with your planning.
Please be sure to check the current guidance, all available on the getting back together safely updates page. We’ll update this content on Monday (19 July) when these changes come into effect.
We hope this update will enable you to continue to offer amazing experiences for young people, but it’s important to make sure that safety remains at the forefront of your plans. We all have a responsibility to make sure our activities are planned to mitigate the risk of COVID-19 spreading.
We’ll continue to monitor further changes in government guidance and expect the next update to be in September 2021. At this time we hope to review the situation for international travel. As with previous changes, please plan for the readiness level we’re in and do not book or commit to activities until it is confirmed that we have moved to the stage where the activities are allowed.
Don’t forget that you will need to still risk assess your activities, but if you have an approved COVID-19 risk assessment, there is no need to resubmit another.
We’re looking forward to an exciting summer of Scouting activities, and hope you are too!
