11/5/2020 - Get Ready to Resume Face to Face Scouting
Following yesterday’s announcement by the Victorian Government, Leaders and Section councils should be planning to resume some outdoor activities in small groups of up to 10 from May 16.
At this stage, halls remain closed for Section meetings, and activities should be day only (ie no camping).
Only activities that can be undertaken with physical distancing, such as bushwalking and cycling, will initially be possible.
These will have requirements for physical distancing and personal hygiene.
The Coronavirus Emergency Management Team will be closely reviewing the Direction once issued by the Chief Health Officer and providing further advice on what these changes will mean later this week. Until the further information is issued by the Chief Commissioner, our existing requirements continue.
