Following the recent announcements by the government, British Orienteering has amended the operational guidance for orienteering events in England.
The move to Step 4 on 19 July in England sees the removal of a large number of restrictions, with no set restrictions on the format or how many people can take part in sport and physical activity.
British Orienteering would like to thank all the volunteers and clubs who’ve worked hard within the previous restrictions to ensure the sport returned in a safe a manner as possible. Whilst restrictions have been lifted, COVID is very much still in circulation and we urge a continued responsible approach to running events and coach sessions. Some people will still be cautious so please be mindful to respect others personal choices as some normality returns.
The following simple overarching guidance of key considerations for participants, orienteering coaches, officials and athletes is a summary of relevant Government guidance.
An accompanying set of FAQs contain information on specific questions, whilst Sport England has also published separate FAQs.

British Orienteering have produced a Code of Conduct for participants which take into account the best practice in recognising the dangers from the Covid-19 virus.
A range of smartphone orienteering courses in and around south Manchester are now available via a dedicated website thanks to the efforts of MDOC members Ian Watson, Peter Ross and Doug Edwards during lockdown. The courses use the latest version of the MapRun app that was trialled at last season's night street league, MapRunF.
Challenges include finding as many postboxes in your area as you can in an hour and navigating the streets of Altrincham on a map drawn 120 years ago.
MDOC is committed to be "safe, effective and child-friendly" and has adopted an appropriate set of policies and codes of conduct.
