Supplement 7 to the Coronavirus Guidance – England 3 Tier System (revised 22:08 14th October)
On 12 October the Prime Minister announced a new system of COVID-19 restrictions to replace the existing local lockdown measures in individual areas.
Under the new scheme, local areas will be placed in one of three tiers;
Tier 1 (Medium),
Tier 2 (High)
Tier 3 (Very High).
The new system of restrictions will come into force from Wednesday 14 October.
Tier 1 areas will be subject to the current national restriction measures such as the ‘rule of six’.
Therefore follow our current guidance and use training pods of 15, But within the 15 split the pod into 6 or less people and do not mix the groups.
Tier 2 will see additional restrictions, such as a ban on households mixing indoors.
Follow our current guidance and use training pods of 15, But within the 15 split the pod into 6 or less people and do not mix the groups.
We are awaiting guidance from the government but our standard guidance using social distancing should cover us.
The government confirmed that in Tier 3 areas a baseline of restrictions will include a complete ban on households mixing and the closure of pubs and bars.
In addition to the baseline measures, gyms and leisure centres within the Liverpool City Region will have to close.
Which will mean Aikido clubs must close again, while an area is in Tier 3 rules.
- From 24 September 2020 organised indoor activities, such as Martial Arts clubs, can continue to take place with more than six people, provided individual groups of six do not mix.
For further information about how the latest changes impact indoor activity, please see the FAQs on the Sport England website.
- All sport, physical activity and exercise classes for under 18s, indoors and outdoors, are permitted to continue where a risk assessment has been carried out.
The BAB has been in contact with Sport England and the Sport and Recreation Alliance for clarification.
We will provide further information on what this new system means for the sport and recreation sector including Aikido once it is made available.
