With national COVID-19 restrictions ending from 2nd December 2020 and with England returning to local tiers, the following amendments have been made to the guidance:
1. Reversion to local restrictions where different tiers of restrictions apply in different parts of England
a. Following asecond lockdown period in November 2020, the UK Government will revert to the three-tiered system of local COVID alert levels (Medium, High, Very High) from 2nd December 2020 – please note that the tiers have been toughened and many more areas have been placed into the higher tiers in order to safeguard the gains made during the period of national restrictions, so please read this updated guidance carefully.
b. UK Government restrictions on sport in England are as follows:
1 Medium Alert Tier
Organised sport can take place outdoors. Organised indoor sport and classes must follow the rule of six. Youth(U18) and disability sport is unaffected.
2 High Alert Tier
Organised sport can take place outdoors. Organised indoor sport and classes are only permitted provided that different households or support bubbles do not mix (not including the coach). Youth (U18) and disability sport is unaffected.
3 Very High Alert
Organised sport can take place outdoors. Organised sport, physical activity and exercise classes cannot take place indoors. Youth(U18) and disability sport is unaffected.
Please note that throughout this guidance U18 refers to the actual age of the individual ‘on the day’, not to their cricket age group as determined on the 1st of September 2020.
