England Athletics published the Covid-19 Roadmap 2021 on the 24th of February. This is a four-step plan culminating in a return to “normal activities”.
As with the Government Roadmap the dates for each step are provisional and contingent upon the rates of infection, number vaccinated, the impact of variants of the virus and other factors which may present a higher risk of infection in the community.
This plan is based upon these provisional dates. The activities will require risk management with the required risk assessments and mitigation in place before they can take place. It is accepted that activities may have to be postponed or cancelled if the guidance changes.
