Scottish Archery Statement - Phase 1 of Route Map

It was good to hear the First Minister’s (FM) update today regarding Phase 1 of the route map out of lockdown effective from Friday 29th May. I understand there is some real keen-ness to get back shooting and we have shared our guidance with government and sportscotland and await approval from them as to when we can publish this.


As the FM’s statement stipulated, this is just the first small step in extending exercise and physical activity therefore any activity must be outdoors and should result in no more than 2 households interacting whilst physically distancing - with a group size no more than 8 people.


The FM also stipulated whilst it will not be enshrined in law, the government strongly recommends keeping travel to and from outdoor activity should be ideally 5 miles or less from your home.


The new “Test and Protect” system will soon be live and we encourage anyone who is symptomatic of COVID19 please do check www.nhsinform.scot for further guidance. 


Please do take care of yourselves and your loved ones and I look forward to sharing more with you when we can.
