COVID Safe News 2021

To meet ALL the requirements from Qld Health about contact tracing, we are implementing some new changes for all those who visit the Centre.
For our usual participants, parents and carers your usual sign in and out will remain the same. Any visitors who attend on Program days will still complete the extra Covid tracing form we have been using.
However, there are times when a maintenance team or when the arenas are hired, there is no one from SCRDA in attendance. To comply with COVID conatct tracing we will be utilising 2 new boxes for Arena Hirers and other visitors to the Centre to use so all visitors to the Centre can be traced if need be. Full privacy remains a priority. 2 new boxes - one to hold blank forms and the second lockable box will be for completed forms to be placed in. Please ensure you use these boxes when visiting the Centre out of our working hours.
