Key points for those in Level 4 areas include:

  • Those aged 12+ and over can take part in organised training, group exercise and competition with their group.
  • Group sizes of up to 15 people, including jog leaders, are permitted at any one time.
  • Physical distancing should be maintained at all times – 2m when side by side, and 5m when running single file.
  • Where there are multiple bubbles operating at the same venue, risk assessments must be completed to ensure there can be no mixing of participants before, during or after the activity.
  • Adults (18+) should only travel locally (within their local authority area) to take part in organised sport or physical activity.
  • Coaches and Jog leaders can travel across local authority boundaries to coach/lead. However, please remember to minimise travel where possible.
  • For informal exercise, people of all ages can travel up to 5 miles from their local authority boundary, but can only meet in accordance household guidelines on group size.
