EA Residential Update February 2022

Date: 18th Feb 2022 Author: Michael Croft
In early January due to the Covid-19 Omicron variant step 2 of residential guidance was postponed until 14th of February 2022. Since then, the public health concern regarding Omicron has improved.
As a result, from today residentials can commence with:
  • Up to 60 young people from a single visiting group at a residential site
  • Up to a total of 60 young people across 2 or 3 different visiting groups at any single residential site (i.e. the total young people across all 2 or 3 groups does not exceed 60)
  • The above permissible numbers do not include leadership for your programmes which must remain proportionate to the needs of the groups to ensure safeguarding and risk management.
Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
