Guidance and Support around Coronavirus.

Update 12 Apr 21:
As from 00:01 Monday 12 Apr 21 we are at Readiness Level Amber. This means:
• Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorers will be able to meet indoors, with no legal limit on youth numbers, however you should keep it as one section meeting at a time with flexibility for smaller sections to join together if required. It’s important to remember that physical space will be limited and social distancing of two metres between everyone will be required. You should continue to take all measures to stop transmission and we would recommend most sections to continue meeting outdoors if they can.
• Scout Network may also meet indoors but will be limited to maximum group sizes of 15. We continue to encourage outdoor meetings where you can.
• Adult activities can only take place outdoors and should follow the current Government guidance.
• Trips and visits are now accepted, however these should only be done where you cannot stay local to achieve the outcomes and each must be completed within a day as residential activities remain prohibited.

Read more here about the current restrictions and the requirements and actions to be taken for the safe return to face-to-face scouting.

Leaders can submit their Covid-19 re-start risk assessments for approval via Smartform here.

Leaders can notify TSA about a confirmed positive case, who has attended a face-to-face activity within the previous 14 days, via the online incident reporting Smartform here.

Delivering a Flexible Programme During Covid-19
Young people can work towards badges and awards while at home, on-line, or as face-to-face scouting returns. TSA guidance on making the rules more flexible including example activities for all sections and scenarios can be found here.

Activity Risk Assessments
Moving forward, risks must be documented. Changes to the requirements for risk assessments were made by TSA in August 2020. Guidance on creating risk assessments; a useful short video presentation to aid your understanding; and example activity risk assessments can be found here.
