29 Mar Current Covid-19 Restrictions
Current restrictions are in place until 15 April 2021. A quick overview of what these restrictions mean for our club is as follows:
Masks for Queensland (all of Queensland including Greater Brisbane)
- You must carry a face mask with you at all times when you leave home, unless you have a lawful reason not to.
- You must wear a mask in indoor spaces, such as:
o shopping centres, supermarkets, retail outlets and indoor markets
o hospitals and aged care facilities
o hospitality venues such as restaurants and cafés (not required for patrons while seated; customer facing staff only)
o churches and places of worship
o indoor recreational facilities and gyms (except if doing strenuous exercise*)
o indoor workplaces (where safe to wear a mask and you can’t physically distance)
o public transport, taxis and rideshare, including waiting areas and queues for this transport
o airports and travelling on planes.
- It is strongly recommended you wear a mask when outdoors if you are unable to stay more than 1.5m distance from other people, such as busy walkways and thoroughfares.
- Masks do not need to be worn in some circumstances, including children under 12 years, where people have certain medical conditions, and in workplaces where it is not safe to do so.
- You can remove your masks to consume food or drink.
So what does this mean for members?
If you wish to come and play golf, that is fine, but you must carry a mask with you and wear that mask while in the clubhouse or pro-shop.
Once you have been served and are seated, you can remove the mask but must put the mask back on if you get up to order food or drink or go to the restrooms.
While on the golf course, you are not required to wear the mask as long as you can keep more than 1.5m away from your fellow players.
Two players can still share a golf cart but, unless they are from the same family, you must both wear a mask while in the cart together.
The club advises any member who feels unwell to seek medical advice and to stay at home until their symptoms have gone and they have formal medical clearance to attend public places.
The virus and potential implications are changing constantly and will be monitored accordingly, we will continue to provide updates to members as regularly as required, or alternatively when additional Federal Government updates are announced.
The Board thanks all members for their attention to this very important matter and for their support of the club’s efforts to respond effectively.
