6 July Changes to Covid arrangements in Wales: Guidance for Activity Providers

Wales Adventure Tourism Organisation (WATO) has released the attached statement summarising the latest guidance for outdoor providers, following the changes announced by the Welsh Government for the next 2 weeks.

The statement includes a key clarification from the Welsh Government that “some outdoor activities by professional providers with groups of professional clients, such as some NGB courses (subject to confirmation by NGBs) and corporate team-building, are classed as ‘work’ so may now be run with appropriate workplace precautions in place by providers”, which we hope will be welcome to a few SWOAPG Members.

It also lists some questions that we have asked of Welsh Government for which we are still awaiting answers – including when the 2m rule might be relaxed; whether outdoor professionals can work with 2 households; and when group activity might be permitted. We will keep you informed if / when we receive answers…
