Covid-19 update for jogging groups

Monday 4 January 2021

We are sure most of you are aware already there have been some further changes announced today (Monday 4 January) in the fight against Covid-19. The changes announced by the First Minister return us to a similar position we were in March.

Our current Framework for mainland Scotland is therefore put on hold until 31 January 2021 at the earliest. All island communities must continue to adhere to Level 3 guidance in line with the scottishathletics & jogscotland Framework, available on the Covid-19 page of our website.

We are still awaiting sport-specific guidance from sportscotland, but at present, our advice for adult jogging groups within mainland Scotland is as follows:

* We strongly recommend that all group activity is suspended from 00:01 on 5 January 2021 to midnight on the 31 January 2021.

* Everyone age 12 years+ can exercise outdoors with one other person from one other household but you must follow physical distancing rules.

* From tomorrow, you are allowed to exercise outdoors with members of your own household as often as you like. Children aged 11 and under will not be counted in that limit. For more information on activity for those aged 11 and under, see the scottishathletics website.

* Facilities may be shut – check with your local facility providers.

We will update with more detail as soon as possible in the coming days.
