Scottish Curling have updated their guidelines to cover the new local protection levels introduced by the Scottish government. A summary of the guidelines is provided below, but you can read the full document here and you can see the level for each local authority here.
The Board wishes to point out to all curlers that the Scottish Government clarified on 1/11/2020 that travelling from a tier 3 area to curl is not an allowed exemption from the latest Covid travel restrictions. We appreciate this will be disappointing to some but adherence to this is not negotiable and we would ask curlers to adhere to this. The ice rink will assist in rearranging ice to a later date.
Protection Level 0, 1 and 2
In these levels curling can take place following the Scottish Curling guidelines.
In level 3 curling is allowed but with the following additional restrictions:
- no more than 6 people from a maximum of 2 households per sheet
- if all participants are under 18s then up to 9 people per sheet.
- There should be no travel into or out of Level 3 Local authority areas to participate in curling.
- No curling should take place.
- There should be no travel out of Level 4 Local Authority areas to participate in curling
Kinross is currently in level 2 and so curling will continue in line with the guidelines.
We understand that these new regulations make things difficult for some of our clubs and curlers if they live in level 3 areas, and that they may be reconsidering their bookings in the light of this. The decision is entirely for them, their team, or their club. Kinross Curling will respect their decision and will try to provide suitable alternative bookings later in the season. If this is not possible for any reason then bookings already paid for will be refunded.
