  • Awareness education for our community
  • Readily available hand sanitisers (including soap)

We ask our members, guests and families to please support our efforts by:

  • Monitoring your health closely and staying home if you or your child feels unwell.
  • Abiding by Australian Government travel isolation recommendations.
  • Washing your hands often with soap.
  • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze; if you don’t have a tissue cough or sneeze into your upper sleeve or elbow.
