Currently, if a member of our Group is required to self isolate (either because they have been directed to by school or by the NHS) then they won’t be able to come to any section meetings.

If they have to self isolate after a section meeting because of school or being told to by the NHS, test and trace may contact us. If they contact us to advise us of this, I will follow their guidance as to the next steps. I will give them contact details of any member present at the meeting concerned and they will contact members where necessary. Because we are enforcing the 2 meter social distancing rule, current guidance we have received suggests that the risk of transmission is minimal and you should only self isolate if directed to by the NHS.

We will not contact members ourselves as it will be up to the professionals. We keep this position under review constantly and will update it inline with guidance from The Scout Association as necessary.
