COVID-19

Information

Current Advice

If a Positive Case attends Bundoora Scouts, please refer to the Positive Cases and Contacts FAQs.

From 11:59 pm on June 24, 2022, COVID-19 vaccinations are no longer required to attend Bundoora Scouts. The following requirements apply to Bundoora Scouts members, supporters and visitors.

Key Changes

  • Leaders, adult helpers and other workers (such as campsite workers, etc) are no longer required to be vaccinated, unless their role includes disability care
  • Parents (including rostered parents), young adult members (ie Rovers) and youth members are not required to be vaccinated
  • Face masks are still required if travelling on a bus or public transport
  • You only need to notify Bundoora Scouts of a positive case attending if the positive case shared accommodation or if there was more than one positive case

Further guidance is available in the Summary of Restrictions.

Close Contacts

Close contacts can now leave seven-day self-quarantine as long as they comply with specific requirements. Close contacts can attend Bundoora Scouts if they:

  • are not showing any COVID-like symptoms, and
  • have received a negative result from a Rapid Antigen test undertaken on the day of attendance (and each subsequent day for an overnight event), and
  • wear a face mask indoors (unless an exception applies), and
  • do not share accommodation, such as tents, bunkhouses or hall sleepovers.

COVID Testing

It is recommended that all attendees (including youth members, young adult members, leaders, adult helpers, parents, etc) receive a negative COVID test (PCR or Rapid Antigen) within 48 hours prior to attending an activity that includes:

  • Sharing a tent or other accommodation such as cabins or bunkhouses
  • Sleepover at a hall or similar property

COVID Testing may also be required at some Major Events.

A COVID test undertaken as part of work or school surveillance is acceptable to demonstrate a negative COVID test.

Where a COVID test could not be undertaken within 48 hours prior to attending an event, the participant should stay in single person accommodation until a COVID test can be performed.

Further COVID guidance for Scouting is available on the Summary of Restrictions page or in the COVID-19 FAQs.

This webpage and associated FAQs are regularly updated to provide the latest Scouts Victoria guidance on current COVID-19 restrictions.
