Update to the Update - COVID restrictions loosening
From Voyageur Council (changes in Green)
All Groups under all Ontario Public Health Units may operate under modified Stage 3 Scouting. However, please note that not all Public Health Units have interpreted the provincial regulations consistently.
Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit
Kingston, Frontenac and Lennox & Addington Health Unit
Effective immediately, Scouting Groups operating in the Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit and the Kingston, Frontenac and Lennox & Addington Health Unit can operate under Schedule 2, Section 14 of the regulations ("Businesses that provide teaching and instruction").
In-person, indoor and outdoor gatherings are permitted. Outdoor meetings are preferred.
When meeting indoors, the total number of participants permitted must be limited to the number that can maintain a physical distance of at least two metres from every other person in the space, and in any event, cannot exceed 50 per cent of the capacity of the indoor space. We encourage you to speak with your meeting location to ensure that you are in compliance with their restrictions. Face coverings and/or masks must be worn at all times.
When meeting outdoors, the total number of participants permitted must be limited to the number of persons who can maintain a physical distance of at least two metres from every other person. Face coverings and/or masks must be worn when distancing (two metres or more) cannot be maintained.
We highly encourage the use of Patrols (8 members) to allow for physical distancing and to minimize the sharing of equipment.
Camping is permitted; Groups are required to follow the safety guidelines for COVID-19 for camps produced by the Office of the Chief Medical Officer of Health. Please speak with your Relationship Manager or a member of the CK3 to ensure all restrictions are being followed (especially for younger Sections).
