===== COMPLYING WITH COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS ======
There are hoops that we need to jump through to comply with the restrictions.
As part of your registration, we need to know how many people are in your car, and only your partner and/or children that live with you are allowed. (i.e. the club's standard family membership criteria).
We need to follow the legal maximum number of people in a group. We restrict the number of cars as normal but we may need to stop or reduce registrations to comply.
If we know that the number of people will be the limiting factor then we will manage this by counting people in the car using the Guests sign-up system.
Either way, all passengers must be named for tracking purposes. If you bring anyone that has not been registered as a guest, you will not be allowed on the trip.
Additional COVID-19 Passenger Restrictions :
These additional restrictions have been put in place to confirm with the Government regulation. It's the trip leader's responsibility to ensure they are adhered to and you will be asked to confirm each one during registration. So it's more important than ever to follow the Trip Leader's instructions.
- All passengers are your family members (partner or child, in same household)
- As the club member, you are responsible to ensure your passengers are aware of and follow the restrictions.
- Everyone must respect social distancing, of 1.5m, from other members - particularly during:
- Breaks - briefings, tea breaks, lunch breaks, etc.
- Recoveries - stay in your car where possible, unless asked to help.
- You cannot attend If you are feeling unwell, been in close contact with anyone suspected of having the virus, or recently returned from overseas
- Bring hand-sanitiser along with your normal kit.
- There may be no access to public toilets or other facilities because they may be closed.
- We also suggest that you use the COVIDSafe app.
- Temporary Members are not allowed.
