Organised outdoor sports are timetabled for 29 March.
Indeed & huts are still limited into May, or possibly June. Travel is also restricted until the April date.
I thought the stay at home order ended on 29th of March or have they moved it already ?
As part of step one, there will be further limited changes from 29 March, the week in which most schools will break up for Easter. Outdoor gatherings of either 6 people or 2 households will be allowed, providing greater flexibility for families to see each other. This includes in private gardens.Outdoor sports facilities, such as tennis and basketball courts, will be allowed to reopen, and people can take part in formally organised outdoor sports.At this point, the Stay at Home order will end, although many lockdown restrictions will remain.For example, you should continue to work from home where possible, and overseas travel remains banned, aside for a small number of reasons.
I thought I saw something about self catered accommodation being 12 April on the bbc website
Step 2, no earlier than 12 April:Non-essential retail, personal care premises, such as hairdressers and nail salons, and public buildings, such as libraries and community centres, will reopen.Most outdoor attractions and settings, including zoos, and theme parks, will also reopen although wider social contact rules will apply in these settings to prevent indoor mixing between different households. Drive-in cinemas and drive-in performances will also be permitted.Indoor leisure facilities, such as gyms and swimming pools, will also reopen - but only for use by people on their own or with their household.Hospitality venues can serve people outdoors only. There will be no need for customers to order a substantial meal with alcohol, and no curfew - although customers must order, eat and drink while seated.Self-contained accommodation, such as holiday lets, where indoor facilities are not shared with other households, can also reopen.Funerals can continue with up to 30 people, and the numbers able to attend weddings, receptions and commemorative events such as wakes will rise to 15 (from 6).
Caving club huts come under the heading of "Hostels" according to the rules. The requirements for re-opening these may not be the same as what is generally called "self-catering accommodation"
Step 3: At least 5 weeks after step 2, no earlier than 17th May120. In Step 3, all but the most high-risk sectors will be able to reopen. In all sectors,COVID-Secure guidance will remain in place and premises must not cater for groupslarger than the legal limits. Sectors which will reopen include:a. Indoor hospitality, with no requirement for a substantial meal to be servedalongside alcoholic drinks, and no curfew. The requirement to order, eat and drinkwhile seated (‘table service’) will remain;b. Remaining outdoor entertainment, such as outdoor theatres and cinemas;c. Indoor entertainment, such as museums, cinemas and children’s play areas;d. Remaining accommodation, such as hotels, hostels and B&Bs;e. Adult indoor group sports and exercise classes; andf. Some large events, including conferences, theatre and concertperformances and sports events.
...it should be legally possible for people to go caving outside their home areas in groups of up to six from 12 April.
Bear in mind in certain parts on North Yorkshire covid administration to hospital figures are still going up
There is also the issue of the image of the sport and the good will of locals /land ownersIf everyone suddenly thinks its OK to drive here there and everywhere to go caving there very well are likely to be negative impacts
Quote from: Ed on February 23, 2021, 07:05:24 amBear in mind in certain parts on North Yorkshire covid administration to hospital figures are still going upI work at a West Yorkshire hospital, which covers a large part of North Yorkshire including some of the caving areas. Our covid cases are definitely going down.
On Thursday they only had 2 more patients than the previous week: https://www.hdft.nhs.uk/coronavirus/trust-wide-current-statistics/
