Covid-19 information

Last updated 22.5.2021

May

⚜️ We will follow the Covid -19 situation and the consequent restrictions. The meetings will be in line with the current corona regulations; we will be receiving updated Covid -19 instructions from the Finnish Guides and Scouts (Suomen Partiolaiset) and the Scouts of the Metropolitan Area (Pääkaupunkiseudun Partiolaiset). If the current Covid -19 situation changes, updated instructions will be shared to everybody once we have the latest information. These instructions are valid until further notice

⚜️ Each group have tentatively agreed to have two scout activities either online or outdoors in May. The group leaders will inform you about the meetings closer the meeting time. We will update the program next time in August when new scout term will begin.

⚜️ If the meeting is held outdoors we will follow the Covid -19 instructions carefully: Every child must have their own face mask, we will keep the social distance properly and we use the hand sanitizer when needed.

⚜️ We are all very much looking forward to going back and being together in the forest and at camps once again, but for the moment we unfortunately cannot organise other Scout events or trips. Once it is safe to do so we look forward to seeing everybody again!


⚜️ We will organise weekly scout meetings remote. In our events, we will follow the hygiene and safety regulations instructed by the authorities and Finnish Scouts.

⚜️ We have updated our group programs according to the new Covid-19 rules. Because of the new rules we have decreased the amount of the existing scout meetings. In addition, the remaining scout meetings will be held outdoors.

⚜️ Likewise, the meetings for the whole age group have been cancelled. Instead the group will make the same program with their own group and group leader. All of the groups will make similar activities and use similar materials during their normal scout meeting time.

⚜️ We will wear face masks for scout events indoors and outdoors in situations where the social distancing is not possible. Every child must always have their own face mask at the scout meeting, if for some reason will need to use the mask. We will always have enough hand sanitizer at our disposal when necessary. 

⚜️ We will also be introducing online meetings at scouts in the near future, because the autumn is getting dark and cold an then it is not always possible to meet outdoors. We will organise online meetings on Google Meets. Children can attend the meeting by phone, tablet or computer. The group leader will inform about the online meetings in advance and will give instructions to everybody.

⚜️ Please note:

  • You can only attend scout meetings and events in complete health.
  • Report any exposure for Covid -19 immediately to your group leader.
