  • Scottish Government statement - indoor activities for children/young people

    Created: 10/08/2020

    The Scottish Government has issued a statement clarifying its stance on the resumption of indoor activities for children and young people. The statement states:

    "Schools and regulated ELC (Early Learning Childcare practitioners) are beginning again from 11 August and we are receiving queries about whether other indoor activity may resume at the same time.

    The answer is that indoor activities for children and young people which are not overseen by a regulator should not start again until agreed guidance is in place. Unfortunately, back to school does not mean back to normality and for now, ensuring that the transition back to school is successful is our top priority. For now, activities for children and young people under the age of 18 should continue online or outdoors in line with existing guidance. We know that these indoor activities are of huge value to children, young people and families across Scotland and our ambition is to get them open soon as soon as this is deemed appropriate.  We will provide further information about timing with additional guidance where this is necessary."

    Further information relating to this statement can be found within the minutes of the meeting of the COVID-19 Advisory Group held on Tuesday 4 August 2020.
