  4. Children in Wales can leave lockdown areas for sport

 

Some of the points include:

  • a “child” or young person means a person who was aged under 18 on 31 August 2020.
  • The activity must be organised. Such as falling under a governing body’s return to play guidance, and having a risk assessment in place.
  • An adult can leave a health protection area: to…participate in or facilitate organised activities for the development or wellbeing of children (including sports, music and other recreational activities such as those provided for children outside of school hours and during school holidays). Note: Clubs and activities should make provisions that minimise travel across lockdown area boundaries by adults - including utilising alternative locations, and where possible using adult coaches/volunteers from the local area. If this is not practical then adult coaches & volunteers will be able to travel, but only to facilitate activities for under 18s
