COVID Readiness Level Change – Yellow

Date: 3rd Dec 2021 Author: Slimer
England

Readiness level: YELLOW

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. Face coverings are required indoors (unless exempt) for those aged 11+.
  • Residential activities: Nights away activities may take place, more details in the planning COVID-safe Nights Away in 2021 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.
I want the public to know how Scouting continues to open young people’s eyes to a world of extraordinary promise and possibilities.'
