Travel

Can we travel interstate to attend Scouting?

Yes, but unless you are in one of the NSW-Victorian Border Communities, you must contact coronavirus@scoutsvictoria.com.au in advance.

There is a significant risk that groups travelling interstate could be caught up in border closures.

Interstate travel includes travelling across the border into any State where a permit is required to return to Victoria, including South Australia and disembarking on the NSW side of the Murray River.

This requirement is in addition to any other notifications that are required.

These directions do not apply to members and/or Groups in the NSW-Victorian Border Community who are undertaking activities within the NSW-Victorian Border Community area. But it does apply to members and/or Groups in the NSW-Victorian Border Community who are travelling further interstate.

Can we carpool to get to an activity?

Yes, you can carpool to an activity. Standard COVIDSafe precautions should be in place.

  • Do not travel if you are sick or showing any symptoms however mild, stay at home and get tested
  • Hand washing / hand sanitiser before and after
  • Keep a record of who goes in which car for longer journeys
  • Face masks are only required if travelling by bus or on public transport

Normal Child Safety precautions should still be in place.

Can we travel by bus / coach to get to an activity?

Yes, but extra COVIDSafe controls should be in place, similar to public transport.

  • Do not travel if you are sick or showing any symptoms however mild, stay at home and get tested
  • Hand washing / hand sanitiser before and after
  • Clean, and disinfect if possible, frequently touched points before and after the trip, e.g. door handles, window controls, seat belt clips, grab handles, hand rests, seat adjusters, etc.
