Activities should primarily involve children from the same local community. It would be wise to limit the number of leisure activities if this involves participation in many different groups.
Children and youth under the age of 20 can participate in sports activities as usual, both indoors and outdoors. The rule on keeping a physical distance of at least one metre is eased for competitions with participants under the age of 20 where the activity cannot be performed while at all times keeping a one-metre distance. This means that matches and other competitive situations for children's and youth sports can be carried out, but only within respective sports districts or regions.
The recommendation on keeping a physical distance of at least one metre can be deviated for children and youth under the age of 20 who are attending camps, end-of-term celebrations, school-like sports / culture / leisure activities, including those organizing the event.
The group size recommendation is maintained with a maximum of 20 persons. Several such groups of 20 people can also be gathered, provided that the groups are kept separate and that the general advice for infection control are followed both on an individual and group level.
Sports teams / clubs / associations should, where possible, divide the participants into fixed groups preferably made up of individuals who also interact in other situations, such as the same local environment, school district etc.
Children and youth who participate in team sports or other sports activities that do not involve long-term close contact can engage in the activity with the normal level of contact between participants provided the recommendations on group size and fixed groups (maximum 20 persons) are followed. This means that sports activities with contact such as football and handball can be carried out for children and young people.
Sports that involve one-to-one contact between athletes, such as martial arts, wrestling, partner dance and similar activities can be resumed for children and youth provided the number of partners is limited to a minimal number of fixed partners.
All changing rooms can be used with a one metre distance between lockers. It is important to allow for a minimum of one metre distance between people in changing rooms and shower facilities, and that the toilet capacity is sufficient in terms of the number of people.
To avoid gathering of larger groups, children and youth should be encouraged to arrive just at the scheduled starting time and leave straight after the activity.
