The government has issued new guidance for the national lockdown in England, which comes into force on Tuesday 5 January.
The guidance states that:
All organised orienteering activities, including events, competitions, leagues and coaching, are therefore suspended with immediate effect (except for orienteering for disabled people, on which we will provide further information in due course).
POCs and VOCs can still be used for individual exercise. Courses should be registered with British Orienteering as activities to provide insurance cover for the club and planner. They must not be used for competitions or leagues.
We would recommend that you add any courses on to the British Orienteering POC portal via your club POC Manager or contact firstname.lastname@example.org
The full national lockdown: stay at home guidelines are available on the UK government website.
Guidance for orienteering clubs
