Following the confirmation by the Prime Minister yesterday (23 November) that England will return to a three-tier system of regional restrictions once the current period of national restrictions ends at 00:01 on 2 December. The Board of British Orienteering met on 27 November and have agreed that:
From Wednesday, 2 December 2020, orienteering events using electronic punching and timing equipment can take place providing that they follow these guidelines.
People are advised not to travel into or out of tier 3 areas (very high alert) in order to participate or volunteer in an orienteering activity or event.
This does not apply to travel where it is necessary to enable supervised coaching sessions and competitions for under-18s or activities for disabled people.
Anyone organising or taking part in an orienteering event or activity must ensure that they are aware of the local COVID alert level both in their home area and at the intended venue for their activity, and act in line with the restrictions which apply.
Further guidance will be published on Tuesday, 1 December 2020.
