COVID 19 Guidance for Rowing - First Minister's Statement 4 January 2021

Posted: January 4 2021

Further to the First Minister’s announcement today, we are reviewing our guidance in the light of the new, increased restrictions announced and will publish revised detailed guidance for rowing as soon as possible. 

The primary message is "stay at home" as much as possible.  By law, from 5 January, in a level 4 area, you can only leave your home (or garden) for an essential purpose.  The essential purposes are further defined and explained on the Scottish Government website.  Please note the following key points from the Scottish Government website.

  • "A maximum of 2 people from 2 separate households can meet outdoors for sport or exercise. Children under the age of 12 from these households do not count towards this number

  • The members of an individual household or extended household can meet outdoors for sport or exercise."

  • You can travel for local outdoor sport or exercise such as meeting another person, walking, cycling, golf or running that starts and finishes at the same place (which can be up to 5 miles from the boundary of your local authority area), as long as you abide by the rules on meeting other households.

  • Indoor sports facilities are closed.

  • Outdoor gyms can remain open.

  • Outdoor non-contact sports such as golf and tennis are permitted for all age groups provided this is within a single household group, or the group contains no more than 2 people from 2 different households.  Children under the age of 12 from these households do not count towards this number

  • Organised sport and exercise can only take place within a single household group, or a group containing no more than 2 people from 2 different households.  Children under the age of 12 from these households do not count towards this number."
