Scouts NSW Response to COVID-19
We each play an important role in adopting a calm approach to COVID-19, while being mindful of our actions to limit the effect on our own health, as well as the impact it has on those around us.
The following information is provided for Scouts NSW members and their families in relation to COVID-19 and its limitations on Scouting activities.
As the Federal and NSW governments announce changes to public health orders, the Scouts NSW Coronavirus Task Force will meet to discuss the impact of the changes on the activities of Scouts NSW and update the information shown here. Whenever the government announces a relaxation of restrictions, this does not mean that Scouts NSW can automatically relax its restrictions as there are a number of things to consider to ensure healthy and safe Scouting in a pandemic environment.
The latest public health announcements can be monitored at NSW Health.
Current Advice for Scouts NSW
Scout Formations and Region Activity Teams across NSW may now plan to provide a safe return to limited outdoor face-to-face activities from Monday 1 June.
We recognise that for some formations and activity teams, the restrictions will mean that activities are not yet feasible. We are willing to accept that when our members’ health and our reputation is at stake.
While the use of Community Halls is not yet allowed, and it may be a while before we are meeting in our halls, and camping as before, we now have the opportunity to be outdoors again.
The following list of questions and answers will detail the current status of Scouting in NSW:
