UK Scout HQ (Covid-19 Latest Guidance)
Note: Readiness level: GREEN*
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, Scout Network and adult only groups): 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*.
Any trip you plan must be planned with COVID-19 in mind and meet any requirements in all the countries you travel through/to, as well as conditions set by the home government. These restrictions must be considered when deciding on the trips’ viability and planning for what to do should any members of the group test positive for COVID-19. This should be included in the incident planning*.
Note: Where small sections may struggle to be viable to operate independently they may join with another section at this time.
Note: Activities (including those away from your usual meeting place) should be planned to minimise risk by limiting travel at all times. Check the guidance on planning activities in terrain zero*. Trips should only take place where the outcomes can not be achieved locally and local COVID instructions are followed in a safe manner.
Check your COVID risk assessment
Don’t forget that ahead of restarting face-to-face activities you should review your COVID safe risk assessment and make sure it’s current. If nothing significant has changed or only changes to your numbers then this does not need to be re-approved ahead of you restarting.
The situation can change very quickly. Keep up to date with Scouting communications from HQ, County and District.
You can do this via the Luton Scout Website.
