We had an online emergency committee recently re Covid-19 as we need to apply new Queensland Government new rules. The critical ones are below:
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic
- Monthly Club Dives:
As current restrictions are changing (from June 2020), Club Dives have resumed under specific QLD Govt. state rules! This alters the number of divers onboard any vessel, catering limitations and dive-time scheduling. The days and times that Monthly Club Dives can run is dependent on these rules and the ability of our sponsor operators to run. Patience and understanding is required.
That said, for many there has never been a better time to go diving. Dive decks are less busy, dive sites are great and our sponsor operators certainly value the business! Time to support those who are supporting the club!
Please look to your email Inbox and this Website for further details and when Club Dive events are on.
- All overseas trips have been cancelled or deferred until further notice. Australia’s borders are closed and we don’t know for how long, but expect quite some time. The Overseas Coordinator has been keeping all members who are affected by this up to date. No new overseas trips will be planned at this stage.
- The 2021 Photo competition will go ahead.
- Club-meetings – all physical club-meetings have resumed under our Covid-19 Event Plan and Checklists. This means that things MUST operate differently. We are abiding by all state rules and must follow them. ALL Members who attend must appreciate that these measures are not what the committee would like but there is no choice.
Attending members MUST follow guidelines at the meeting, maintain Social Distancing AT ALL TIMES and respect the directions of the organizers.
Please follow the signage and guidance of our Covid19 Trained committee members as they are directing you for your own safety and the safety of others. Also be aware that rules are constantly changing to what happened last meeting may not be what is needed next.
Remember to NOT attend if you are feeling unwell, have been advised to self-isolate or have any reason to suspect that you may be at risk.
- Newsletter – self-isolation, Social Distancing and writing articles or sending in items, photos, stories, news for the Newsletter go very well together. Please send in your contributions to firstname.lastname@example.org
If you have any questions or suggestions, or wish to share information with members, let us know.
It is on us as a community to help each other and get each other through these rough times.
Stay safe and keep each other safe.
