We are happy to welcome back studio groups only from 18 October. There will be no casual use at this stage.
The requirements will be:
Double vaccination. This will be checked by the coordinator of the group, who will act as Covid Monitor and record the names of those whose double vaccination status has been confirmed.
Maximum numbers indoors in the studio: 10 people including model
All must wear a mask indoors (including the model).
The 4 metres distance rule will apply.
A register will be kept of the vaccination status of participants. You will not have to show your vaccination status after it has been recorded the first time.
The studio will remain locked and coordinators will need a key to open up.
We can now also announce that all fully-vaccinated members including those from Lithgow and nearby are free to come up to the studio from November 1st, 2021. Welcome back!
