19th July 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 updated the strategic framework document for managing COVID-19 which becomes effective from 19th July 2021. This provides an updated 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 19th July 2021, all local authorities in Scotland move to Level 0, allowing contact sport for all age groups.. The total participants throughout the day must not exceed 1,000 people including instructors/coaches.
We have also created competition guidance, allowing taekwondo competitions to take place for all in Level 0.
Details of which Protection Level applies for your Local Authority can be found here: https://www.gov.scot/publications/coronavirus-covid-19-protection-levels/pages/protection-levels-by-area/
Scottish Government are currently reviewing the baseline measures which are to be retained to mitigate ongoing risks of transmission ‘Beyond Level 0’. Additional Return to Sport & Physical Activity guidance covering ‘Beyond Level 0’ will be provided when this information is available.
