The government has announced that England will move to Plan B in response to the risks of the Omicron variant. This means:
- From 10 December, you must wear a face covering in most indoor public places, at large venues and events, and on public transport.
- From 13 December, you should work from home if you can.
- From 15 December, you’ll need to show your NHS COVID Pass at nightclubs, some venues and large events to show you’re fully vaccinated, have had a negative test result in the last 48 hours, or you have an exemption.
Full information on the current rules and what they mean for sport and activity, can be found here.
This guidance sets out information for the public and sport providers on how to organise and participate in grassroots sport and physical activity as safely as possible. This includes advice on steps you can take to reduce the risk of transmission within the sport environment.
