Return of Face to Face Scouting
01/12/2020 By Stuart Parker
We can now confirm what face to face Scout activity is allowed when England comes out of lockdown this week.
From the beginning of Wednesday 2 December, all tiers in England will be in Amber for youth provision, for those under the age of 18.
The Government and the National Youth Agency have confirmed that youth clubs and activities will be permitted at all three tiers in England, as services such as Scouts are essential to the development and wellbeing of young people, and should continue wherever possible.
As a reminder this means:
Sections can meet with up to 15 young people (aged under 18), plus 5 adults.
The session can take place outdoors or indoors but must be socially distanced.
Face coverings should be worn by anyone of Scout-age plus when indoors. Adults delivering an activity to young people aren’t required to wear a face covering.
 
Groups across Blackburn will make their own decision to open up sections on a Group by Group basis.
