We’re pleased to let you know The Scouts have confirmed that the UK government has said the youth sector provision in England has moved to the GREEN readiness level from today. Due to this, residential and international trips will change, which is explained below.
The Scouts have updated the readiness level table for England on their website, and the full guidance can be found by clicking here.
Current Readiness Level: GREEN
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 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.
