Walking for Health nationally has confirmed on September 10th, that we are exempt from the rule of six. See https://www.ramblers.org.uk/coronavirus
To quote from the email receivedWe are very happy to confirm that Ramblers Walking for Health walks can continue to organise led walks for up to 30 people, as long as they follow the guidance to restart group walks in a COVID-secure way.
Remember, there is no pressure to restart groups walks until you feel ready to do so.
Why does the “rule of six” not apply to the Ramblers group walks?
Ramblers and Walking for Health organised group walks are categorised as ‘outdoor physical activity events’. These are exempt from the latest restrictions, as we have already met the protocols, and put extra measures in place to reduce the risks of COVID-19.
