SCRA Covid Update – 14 September 2020


Some further guidance and restrictions have been put in place by the Scottish Government on 14 September which affect outdoor exercise. The exemptions for organised sports, such as Coastal Rowing organised by SCRA clubs, remain so most SCRA club activities can continue not withstanding the changes.

The change is that informal outdoor (and indoor) exercise should be restricted to a maximum of six persons, from a maximum of 2 households (not counting children).

Coastal Rowing in fixed seat boats, as Governed by Scottish Coastal Rowing Association, falls under the guidance for Organised Outdoor Sports and requires all clubs to fully comply with the specific agreed requirements and operate in their assigned “field of play” bubbles. For more information on the safe return to rowing on the sea, check out the SCRA Covid Hub.

To confirm, all clubs engaged in our outdoor sport will have a named Covid Officer (who will have completed the helpful SportScotland on line Covid Officer Training) , will have appropriate risk assessments and procedures in place, including hand hygiene; cleansing and sanitising of equipment; social distancing as appropriate and use of face coverings. There must also be procedures in place to support the ability to track and trace participants and contacts.

Please note that additional geographical restrictions in place which may impact on circumstances. https://www.gov.scot/publications/coronavirus-covid-19-local-measures/
