I have spoken to my Candidate Support Manager and he has said:I'm wondering with boris announcing lockdown till 1st December next week am I gonna get my intake date (15th November) delayed or will it still be continued with measures in place

The chances of delayed intake is quite low. Intakes are going ahead, when you arrive you will go into a small group of 6-8 people (section) and isolate for 14 days then you will go into a larger group (not a huge group) for basic training.
When Christmas hits, you will go home and when you come back, you will go back into a small group POD and then go into the larger group when the 14 days are up again.
RAF are doing the same and it's working without any problems and that is what the army think they are going to do. But if the Cabinet instructs it has to stop then it will stop.
All lies with BOJO unfortunately and given he's fairly anti-lockdown and is only conceding to pressure, I am sure he is going to allow key workers and necessary workers (which the army is) to continue as normal as best they can.
