Online activities - If you’re not meeting face-to-face because of the coronavirus pandemic, you can still stay connected with your section/Group/unit online. COVID-19 doesn’t have to stop you trying new things, learning skills, and working towards badges and awards, over 41.6 million minutes of Scouts sessions have been run online already.

Restart risk assessments - Before you restart face-to-face activities, you need to have a COVID-19 safe risk assessment that’s been agreed by your line manager. This is separate to your activity risk assessments; it just deals with controlling risks related to the spread of COVID-19.
Activity risk assessments - You also need to risk assess your activities as normal (and document it). This doesn’t need to be approved, but it’s good to share it with your Group Scout Leader.
