Scottish Government Guidance: Return to Sport (Phase 3)

This Thursday (9 July) sees the Scottish Government require to review the progress out of lockdown.

By general consensus, we are expecting some form of statement by the First Minister regarding entering Phase 3 out of lockdown. Whether this will reflect a full adoption of Phase 3, or a few initial steps towards it – we do not know at this stage.

Once we know what has been announced – and received further guidance/interpretation from sportscotland -  we will be in a position to create a Phase 3 document for Judo to reflect any announcement(s) made and to submit this to sportscotland/Public Health Scotland for their ratification.

We have to be completely honest at this stage and reflect that unless there is a significant change of position by the Scottish Government, the resumption of Judo, as recognised and practiced prior to the Covid-19 outbreak, will not re-commence until Phase 4.
