Do we need to record our activity in scOut and About?

During the coronavirus period, you should record all outdoors activities that are away from the Scout hall in scOut and About. This includes activities undertaken within your District or at another Scouting location.

Activities undertaken in your hall grounds or in public areas, such as park, adjacent to your hall do not need to be recorded in scOut and About.

Do we need a COVID Marshall for our activity?

No, COVID Marshalls are not required for outdoor Scouting activities.

Can we stand closer than 1.5m and/or remove our masks to have a photo taken?

You can stand closer than 1.5m in small groups for a short period to have a photo taken. You should avoid physical contact and it is preferable that photos are taken outdoors.

When there is mandatory mask wearing outdoors, you can lower your mask momentarily for the photo.
