Yesterday the Government announced the changes to Tiers for England.
Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole have now moved to Tier 4 and the rest of Dorset (East Dorset, North Dorset, Dorchester & West, Wareham & IOP and Weymouth & Portland Districts) has moved to Tier 3.
What does this mean for Scouting in Dorset?
Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole – readiness level moves to RED (no face-to-face Scouting).
East Dorset, North Dorset, Dorchester & West, Wareham & IOP and Weymouth & Portland Districts – readiness level remains at AMBER.
Adults should not travel from Tier 3 to Tier 4 (or vice versa) to support face to face Scouting.
Groups in Tier 3 that are on the border of a Tier 4 area should consult with their DC/Risk Assessment approvers about whether they should continue with Face to Face Scouting.
