To our club members and wider community,
Due to the recent development and government advice regarding the COVID-19 (Coronavirus), we are actively monitoring the situation and advice provided by the Department of Health and Chief Medical Officer.
What does that mean for us?
As of today, Sunday 15/03, this week’s training will continue to proceed as usual, as our weekly trainings do not fall under the government’s ban of ‘static gatherings of more than 500 people’.
During training, please avoid contact such as shaking hands, high-fiving, hugging etc.
If you are unwell or experiencing flu like symptoms, it is recommended that you seek medical attention, notify your coach as soon as possible and do not attend training.
As a club, we support your decision to not attend training if you are not comfortable and want to take precautions. Please communicate with your coach as soon as possible.
As individuals, we all have a responsibility to help prevent the spread of this disease*.
- Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for 20 seconds
- Practice good personal hygiene (i.e. Use tissues, coughing and sneezing into a sleeve etc)
- Exercise social distancing measures and avoid unnecessary contact
- Follow all other government advice
*Aligned with advice provided by https://www.health.gov.au/health-topics/novel-coronavirus-2019-ncov#prevention
As we’ve already seen, the situation continues to evolve quickly, so we appreciate your patience as we may need to make changes to our approach at short notice.
