Dear Members,

I am writing to you on behalf of the Board to update you on our response to the Corona Virus outbreak.  We are closely monitoring developments and following the advice from our Federal and State Health and other Government authorities.  In line with this advice we have complied with the directions to date and will continue to do so.

All members must comply with instructions issued by Management and Directors for the good or our members and the community in general.  Failure to comply can lead to serious consequences to the Club and the Members.

It is very important that we work together to reduce the risk of infection.  We advise our members to take the following precautions:

  • Seek medical advice if feeling unwell or have symptoms (fever, chills, cough, runny nose, sore throat, body aches, muscle pain, trouble breathing).
  • Self-isolate for 14 days after international travel, or if you have been in contact with someone with the virus.
  • Observe signage and obey it.
  • Practice good hand hygiene techniques, cough etiquette and social distancing.

If you require more information ring Health Information Line on 1800 020 080.

Most of all … stay safe!
