good news about rallying

Friday, September 11, 2020

After the Government’s announcement that new legislation will come into effect on Monday 14 September limiting social gatherings to six people, the general Rule of Six principle is that if you are operating in accordance with current Covid-secure guidance (as rallies are) you will be able to continue doing as you are currently, provided that individual groups obey the Rule of Six.

It is really important that all aspects of the rally follow the Covid secure guidance previously issued. There should still be no social gatherings on the rally, however groups of up to six may mix (this does not apply to individual households or support bubbles of more than six, who will still be able to gather together).

The Rally Officer/Marshal must continue to collect data for NHS Test and Trace purposes. Please ensure that you have a copy of the Covid Risk Assessment to hand should you be asked to produce it.

Non-compliance of the Covid protocol may bring the Club into disrepute, so please follow the guidance. 

AGMs – as explained previously these are classed as a ‘business meeting’. The Government are continuing to monitoring whether to relax the limit of 30 after the 1 October. If they do not relax this number you will need to ensure that your AGM complies.Scotland have followed suit with this legislation, and Wales have since announced that the Rule of Six will apply indoors.
