COVID-19 Route Map – Phase 3 Guidance for Rowing V2 Published 31st July 2020 

Following the First Minister’s statement on Thursday 30th July, Scottish Rowing is pleased to publish updated guidance for rowing during Phase 3 of the COVID-19 Route Map.  This guidance is effective from 31st July and is available here:

The key changes are as follows:

  • Coaching: From 3rd August, sports coaches can meet with more than four households in a single day.  The limits on group size in a session remain unchanged.
  • Self-isolationIndividuals displaying COVID-19 symptoms should self-isolate for 10 days (increased from 7 days previously). 
  • Shielding: Shielding will be paused from 1stAugust.At that point those currently shielding can follow the general Guidance for Rowing

We continue to work close with sportscotland and other Scottish Governing bodies to develop the guidance to ensure rowing can take place safely.  There are likely to be further updates to this guidance to reflect the staged changes to Government guidelines throughout Phase 3.
