Beavers and Cubs who want to wear a face-covering are very welcome to. It is not mandated, but a personal choice. All we ask is that any decoration is appropriate – no skulls, etc. as they can frighten other young people.
Scouts and Explorers must wear face masks when indoors as per Government guidelines unless they are exempt.
Leaders and other adults in scouting – do not need to wear face coverings when delivering face to face scouting sessions indoors. They must do so when not directly delivering activities (preparation, cleaning etc).
We will continue to monitor this and inform you if the guidance changes.
