SLSNSW is committed to ensuring the safety and wellbeing of our members. For the latest information on Coronavirus (COVID-19) Updates & Resources for SLSNSW Clubs can be found at the link below. The contents of that page are being reviewed at least weekly and will include the latest information aligned to official sources including the Australian Government Department of Health, NSW Health and NSW Sport.
COVID Safety Plan
Under the NSW Public Health Orders, the Club is required to complete a COVID-19 Safety Plan for each program area then register as a ‘COVID Safe Business’. A copy of the COVID-19 Safety Plan must be kept on the premises and be made available for inspection by an authorised officer if requested.
Physical and social distancing
A ‘Turn Up, Participate, Leave’ approach is in place for all activities.
Maintain a minimum of 4sqm per person; reduce/avoid close physical contact with others; and avoid crowds and do not enter a crowded space. Any person returning from Victoria and any of the reported case locations in NSW in the last 14 days must self-isolate and be excluded from participating in any SLS activities for a minimum of 14 days.
Record keeping for contact tracing
We are required to keep a record of name and a mobile number or email address for all members, participants, visitors and contractors for a period of at least 28 days. This requirement is mandatory.
The maximum number of people in each area is limited to 1 per 4m2 (4m2 rule). Each area of the Club has signage indicating maximum occupancy limits. Members must ensure they comply with the limits and do not enter an area if the limit has been reached.
Cleaning and disinfecting
The use of shared equipment, including club craft should be discouraged and if unavoidable they should be cleaned and disinfected frequently. Hand sanitation will be made available at entry points, soaps readily available in bathrooms and hand washing stations.
COVID Safe App
All members are encouraged to download the official ‘Coronavirus Australia’ App from the Apple App Store or Google Play, or join the Whatsapp channel on ios or Android.
