Covid Outdoor Training Session Rules (26 April 2021)
Effective from 26 April 2021
For all Clubs, Teams, Players, and Supporters
Organised sporting activities can be undertaken, providing all activity is consistent with current Scottish Government guidance on health, physical distancing and hygiene – you will also need to make sure that your club, facility and participants are made aware and can adapt to changes in guidance at short notice. Information on the Scottish Government’s approach to managing COVID-19 is available at Scottish Government: Coronavirus in Scotland.
People who are symptomatic and household members should self-isolate for 10 days as per NHS Scotland guidance. No one who is self-isolating should attend a sports facility or activity.
To manage a safe return to organised sport and physical activities, all clubs, facility operators and deliverers (herein referred to as ‘operators’) should put in place Test & Protect procedures to help break chains of transmission of Coronavirus (COVID-19). Further information is available within this guidance and at Scottish Government: Test & Protect.
