            covid risk assessment guidance
latest update 5 November 2020 - change to RED readiness level

Following the announcement of a four week lockdown in England from Thursday 5 November, the National Youth Agency (NYA) has now issued guidance about what this means for all youth sector activity. From 5 November, Scouts and all other youth activities will move to RED readiness level. This decision by the Government means that from 5 November there there can be no face to face activity with young people or adult volunteers. From 5 November, only online meetings can be delivered until further notice. We expect these restrictions to last until 2 December when the lockdown is currently scheduled to end in England.
