From April 19th we will be seeing some changes to the current Level 5 Covid-19 restrictions which should allow for a gradual increase in the level of paddling activity permitted. Depending on the impact to transmission rates which this easing results in, there will be a further easing of restrictions on the 26th of April, which should allow for further return to recreational paddling across the country. The easing of these restrictions is dependant on the adherence to the current, and incoming, public health guidelines. We hope our members will continue to prioritise their own, and others, safety when it comes to adherence to these restrictions.
The key guidelines for the Level 5 updates are –
April 19th – Travel within your county or 20km from your home if crossing county bounds. People may meet with one other household outdoors for exercise.
April 26th – Underage non-contact outdoor training in pods of 15 can recommence. Outdoor distanced sport for adults can begin to take place, activities should be on a socially distanced basis and may take place between a maximum of two households.
