REC ALLEY’S STATEMENT ON COVID-19
Rec Alley’s Statement on COVID-19
We write to inform you of proactive measures the Rec Alley team is taking at our facility to mitigate risk and concern in relation to the spread of viruses, including COVID-19, in our community. Although at the time of publishing this message the risk of contracting COVID-19 is considered low in our community, we can collectively educate our participants and visitors on prevention for not only this virus, but all similar viruses, including influenza. This is our best form of action as a community in support of a healthy and safe environment.
Proactive measures we have taken:
- Increasing our cleaning schedules, including multiple disinfecting sessions per day, for all equipment and common surfaces
- Ensuring employees remain at home if they develop cold or flu symptoms
- Vigilance around personal hygiene and health practices. This includes participants, visitors, and employees practising appropriate hand washing, and use of hand sanitisers regularly throughout time spent at the facility
- Minimising unnecessary touching such as high fives or handshakes
- Continuing to educate our people through relevant correspondence and signage
- Continuing to monitor advice provided daily by government organisations, public health units and the World Health
- Organisation, who are providing accurate, timely and detailed updates relevant to the sporting and wider community
What you can do to assist;
- Keep your child or others at home if they are unwell. This includes spectators
- Refrain from attending the facility if you have travelled overseas within 14 days, or in the unlikely scenario you have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive to COVID-19
- Please note, the latest update states anyone returning from travel must self isolate, click HERE to read the updated information
- Encourage and use the hygiene services made available such as washing hands thoroughly with soap and use of the hand sanitisers
- Educate your family to practise good cough etiquette: cover your coughs and sneezes with disposable tissues or clothing (e.g. into elbow), dispose of used tissues, and clean your hands thoroughly afterwards
We will continue to provide a safe facility through use of proactive and preventative measures at this unprecedented time. We certainly do not need to be alarmed, together we can continue to contribute to a healthy community and training facility with positive actions and informative correspondence.
Thank you for your ongoing support.
