Can organised activities still take place?

Yes, organised activities can still take place within limits. However, certain reasonable measures should be in place to protect everyone from the spread of the virus.

Organised activities encompass a broad range of activities that can be attended by people of any age. This includes activities such as, exercise classes, meetings of religious groups and support groups. During these activities, up to 50 people of any age will be able to gather from a mix of households outdoors and up to 30 people from that mix of households will be able to gather indoors.

Organised activities do not include activities such as parties or wider social gatherings of families and friends beyond the arrangements for meeting other people. Organised outdoor activities must not take place in the gardens or grounds of private homes and alcohol must not be consumed as part of this activity.

An organised activity must be organised by a business, public body or a charitable, benevolent, educational or philanthropic institution, a club or political organisation, or the national governing body of a sport or other activity. The organiser of the activity must meet requirements in the Regulations to carry out a risk assessment and take all reasonable measures to minimise the risk of exposure to coronavirus.

Can children take part in organised activities for their development and wellbeing?

Yes – organised activities for the development and well-being of children are permitted. These activities could include a range of clubs or classes attended by children under 18, such as sports clubs, parent and baby/toddler groups, youth groups and religious groups. This does not include activities such as children’s birthday parties or wider social gatherings of families and friends beyond the existing arrangements for meeting other people outlined in guidance for the public.
