Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic 7th Epsom have ensured each Section’s activities have been planned according to Government Guidelines and assessed for the safety of all our young people and adult Leaders/helpers alike.

This policy covers how to respond to a suspected or confirmed case of COVID-19 in an active 7th Epsom Scout Member, Leader or adult helper.

Other symptoms are also being noted – see the Government Information here.

If a young person or an adult Leader/helper either develops symptoms or is in a bubble with someone who develops symptoms compatible with coronavirus (COVID-19) – however mild – they must not attend 7th Epsom meetings and should avoid contact for 5 days.

Things you should also do are:

  • Let fresh air in if meeting others indoors.
  • Practise good hygiene:
    • wash your hands
    • cover your coughs and sneezes
    • clean your surroundings frequently
  • Wear a face covering or a face mask.
