COVID-19 Information

Welcome back!

Welcome back to the squadron! After a very long break we are finally in a position to be able to safely reopen the squadron for parade nights. Lots of time and effort has gone into preparing the building, staff and NCO's for the new procedures and rules that will govern how we operate for the time being. Please use this page to familiarise yourself with the new regulations.

What to know

Limited Numbers

As our parade nights have been restricted to 15 cadets, you will be placed in a specific group and will only be able to attend on specific nights. Unauthorised personnel will not be allowed to enter the building.

Hand Washing

All cadets will be required to wash their hands for a minimum of 20 seconds or use the hand sanitiser at the start of the night on entering.

COVID Briefs

We will hold a COVID awareness brief for all staff and cadets at the start of each parade night.

Maintain Social Distancing

Social distancing markers have been put in the Sqn and maximum room occupancy stated in each room.

Canteen: Closed

We will not be holding canteen so cadets will need to bring their own snacks and drinks. We will continue to offer a mid-evening break.

Reduced Activities

We will organise our activities to make use of outdoor training where possible and will encourage cadets to train in ways that they reduce face-to-face activities by working side-to-side or back-to-back whenever possible.

Extra Cleaning

We have made provision for the building to be cleaned more regularly than before, during and after parades.

Facemasks

As of 8th August, UK Government requires that face coverings are to be worn indoors for youth sector activity; this includes all cadets and adult staff. Face coverings are to be supplied by individuals and are an additional measure, not an alternative to other COVID-secure measures.
