Face Masks

  • Face masks must still be worn indoors or outdoors if you are 12yo or over unless an exemption applies. Refer to further information on Face Masks in the FAQs.

Attendance Record and QR Codes

A record must be taken of all people who attend an indoor or outdoor Scouting activity. This includes youth members, Leaders (including visiting District leaders), helpers, carers, parents, visitors, etc.

A COVID Check-in Marshal is required for indoor activities. A COVID Check-in Marshal can be a nominated Leader, Adult Helper or Youth Member, etc who is responsible for ensuring that all attendees check-in using a QR Code or attendance record. The COVID Check-In Marshal can undertake other activities, but their primary responsibility should be to ensure all attendees check-in.

Refer to the FAQs on Record Keeping and QR Codes.
