19th March SCoT Protection Level Guidance
These guidelines have been developed by Scottish Council of Taekwondo for all taekwondo activities within Scotland and were produced with support from sportscotland and the Scottish Government.
The document shall remain fluid and shall be updated as further phased guidance is released by the Scottish Government regarding Covid-19 and our route from lockdown. The document provides guidance for activity and checklists that should be completed before each session.
Scottish Government has introduced a new strategic framework document for managing COVID-19 became effective from 2 November 2020. This provides a 0-4 Level approach to restrictions with each local authority area (or sub-area) placed in a relevant protection Level depending upon its COVID-19 status which will be reviewed weekly.
From 12th March 2021, the latest Level 4 updated allowed outdoor non-contact sport and organised group exercise for both U18 and adults. An outdoor sporting ‘field of play bubble’ for under 12s consists of up to 30 people including children and coaches at any one time (over 12s ‘field of play bubble’ is up to 15 people).

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. Do not leave your home to undertake exercise or outdoor activity if Scottish Government advice means you should stay at home because you or someone you live with has or has had symptoms of COVID-19.
