COVID-19: Get Out More Roadmap!
The below is an overview on the current situation for OutdoorLads events in relation to the coronavirus pandemic.
For our previously issued statements, please visit our Archive Page.
Update: 19 July 2021
Stage 4 of the Roadmap commenced on 19 July 2021, and we have made some changes to some events to reflect that. It is important that all work together to keep all our events compliant with guidance to keep everyone safe.
OutdoorLads strongly encourages all members to make use of the free lateral flow tests and in particular, to take a rapid lateral flow test immediately prior to attending an event. This will help to keep everyone safe. You can find out more, including how to get a testing kit to pick up locally or to be delivered to your home using these links:

If members are unable to attend an event as they have had a positive test result for Covid-19, or if they have been notified that they are required to self-isolate, we will issue a full refund provided that proof of this is submitted to us. This could be an e-mail confirming the test result or a notification from NHS Teat and Trace.
We recognise that our hostel and BIG events potentially carry greater risk as they are in part, held inside. To help keep us all safe and to balance being able to get back to the events we love whilst playing our part to keep us all safe and to reduce transmission of the virus, we have developed a Covid-19 Policy for Hostel and BIG events. All attendees will be required to show us a valid NHS Covid Pass (or equivalent for those living in Scotland and Wales) at the start of hostel and BIG events, or else results of a negative lateral flow test taken in the previous 48 hours, but ideally on the day of the event. The full policy and an FAQ is available via this link.
Thank you for continuing to do your bit to keep everyone safe and for your continued support during the pandemic.
