BMFA COVID LEGISLATION & RC Flying 06/01/2021
England — TIER 4
The legislation relating to COVID-19 restrictions in place from January 6th has been published.
All areas of England have now been placed in to Tier 4.
The Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (All Tiers) (England) Regulations 2020 have also been amended.
Whilst outdoor exercise is still allowed, either alone or with one other person, we are now no longer permitted to leave our homes to visit public outdoor places for the purposes of open air recreation. The definition of public outdoor places has also been amended and now no longer includes outdoor sportsgrounds or sports facilities.
Outdoor sportsgrounds or sports facilities (which includes model flying club sites and BMFA Buckminster) have also been added to the list of venues that must close.
Guidance relating to other areas of the UK remains the same as in our update of 22/12/2020 seehttps://bmfa.org/News/News-Page/ArticleID/2707/COVID-19-Regulations-Update-22-12-2020
BMFA insurance remains in place when flying lawfully and the personal accident cover is in place should you do something untoward to yourself in the workshop. The day to day work protecting model flying and assisting members and clubs is ongoing and the BMFA office remains manned and open during the lockdown period.
