How do we manage Groups in locations with outbreaks of COVID-19?

Locations with outbreaks will not be communicated on the Scouts NSW website because they emerge rapidly. Leaders need to monitor official media sources or NSW Health for information and if they find they are in, or nearby, an outbreak, decide whether to conduct planned Scouting activities based on the information at hand.  Group Leaders and Section Leaders may make this decision in consultation with their District or Region leadership. Region Commissioners with groups that border another Scouting Region with an outbreak may need to consult with their neighbouring Region Commissioner. People who are in a vulnerable category should not attend Scouting activities in a location where there is an outbreak.
