- No limit on numbers in tents or rooms
- No physical distancing is required indoors or outdoors
- Face coverings are required indoors for age 12+ except whist eating and sleeping

- Also many thanks to Graham Bennet, who has stepped down as District President, where he has given so much valuable support and advice over many years.
The latest Awards to members of Rosyth District Scout Council. Congratulations to everyone who are supporting Scouting in either adult or youth facing roles.
Following two recent safeguarding incidents, it is clear that effective and adequate Risk Assessments are not being done. Will all Executive committee members and leaders visit Risk Assessments now. Risk assessments are required for all premises, owned or leased, and all activities.
Note: For re-starting Scouting under COVID-19 regulations, additional RAs are required.
All members of TSA are responsible for updating their personal information on Compass. Please check your record is correct - especially contact details i.e. email address, telephone.
If you are unsure of how to do this, please speak with your line manager/GSL.
All leaders please note that a current First Aid or First Response certificate is now required at all times. There are additional 'On-line' First Response courses being run to meet the requirements under Covid19. Please check the District Diary for details on registering. Note: All 3 sessions need to be attended for part 'A'. This will be taken as sufficient to meet TSA requirements during COVID19 restrictions. Part 'B', the practical session will need to be completed once restrictions are over.
An Outdoor First Aid courses has been added running from the 4-6th September - Check out District Diary for details on registering.
With many of us in forced 'stay at home' due to Covid19, it would also be opportune time to update all other mandatory training including the 6 hours annual requirement, by refreshing the 'Safety' and 'Safeguarding' online Training modules in preparation for schools returning after the summer holiday.
Information for Adult Training.
Please visit these pages as we need your help in making Scotland more compliant, in terms of our Safety and Safeguarding rules. Young people's safety must be our primary concern, at all times, but a significant number of our adults are not completing Module 1/1E or Safety/Safeguarding ongoing learning, within the prescribed times. It's really important that everyone is up to date with this training,
The District Diary shows all known District events and National, Scottish, and Regional events of interest. This will be maintained with all known dates, but be aware that many events will not be happening due to Covid19.
To help leaders in planning programmes, it has been updated to show all school holiday and 'In Service Training' dates up to Summer holidays 2022.
To allow District or Regional Teams to schedule visits, it would be very helpful if all major events within the District, i.e. Group AGMs; Fund Raising; and community events, are also added.
The Data Protection Policy has been updated to version 1.2. To view Rosyth District Scout Council's policy for Data Protection it can be downloaded as a PDF document.
