The    Good    News    from    the    Australian    Government's    Deputy    Chief Medical    Officer    is...

"The good news is if we act sensibly, and don’t fall into the trap of thinking we can immediately return to life as it was pre-COVID-19, we have reason to be confident we can avoid a resurgence. But everyone has a role to play in this."

Professor Michael Kidd in An opinion piece on 'Easing the COVID-19 restrictions-no time for complacency.' 17 May 2020, https://www.health.gov.au/news/easing-the-covid-19-restrictions-no-time-for-complacency 

Fosterton Retreat  wants to be a covid-19 safe business. 
To understand more about covid safety watch  "Coronavirus video- Help Stop the Spread."  https://www.health.gov.au/resources/videos/coronavirus-video-help-stop-the-spread
There is no evidence that covid-19 spreads through recreational swimming but be aware of distancing rules https://www.cdc.gov/healthywater/swimming/safe-swimming-week/feature.html


As part of our covid safety plan, we have implemented the following:

  • On arrival EVERYONE must check in using the NSW services covid app-on clear display at each accommodation.

  • Hand sanitizer is provided at the door for use before entering.

  • There is a 2 m2 per person at Fosterton Retreat- in line with current NSW guidelines, what you can and can't do under the rules in NSW.)

  • No more than 20 people can gather together inside Fosterton House (See

  • Whether inside or outside people not of the same family group need to observe the physical distancing rules,

  • If you are unwell DO NOT come to Fosterton Retreat- covid-19 symptoms include:

fever (37.5 ° or higher)​

sore throat

shortness of breath (difficulty breathing)

runny nose

loss of taste

loss of smell, for more reported symptoms

  • The NSW government requires people to get tested and isolate until a negative test is returned. Find a testing clinic near you.

  • If you are already on the property when symptoms appear, please let us know so you can be isolated and arrangements made for testing. Where you isolate to will depend on who is already on the property,

  • As always, clean your hands often by washing them with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, or use an alcohol-based hand rub and don't touch your eyes, mouth, or nose. Hand soap is provided.


During cleaning all frequently touched surfaces are cleaned as well as wiped down with a disinfectant. 
While it seems it is not the main method of infection, nor are they certain how long it survives on surfaces. Research suggests it may last from hours to days, so we clean surfaces and leave a 24 hour window between bookings to allow a quarantine period of surfaces:

Our cleaner has been given covid-19 information and if they get unwell someone else covers the cleaning.

If anyone who has been at Fosterton Retreat tests positive to Covid-19 within  28 days of your visit, you will be informed through the covid tracing system used by NSW Services and when we are informed as well.


We provide:

  • Tissues and disposal receptacles,

  • Please note: "If hands are visibly dirty, soap and water should be chosen over hand sanitizer", see The Centre for Disease Control and Prevention:

  • Hand sanitizer at the doors to use before entering our accommodation.

  • Handwash, body soap, water, hand towels and paper towel are provided inside.

 

Other personnel:

  • If any of our cleaners are unwell they have been informed not to attend Fosterton Retreat and to get tested for covid-19, isolating until a negative test is returned,

  • And if we are unwell we will either not attend Fosterton Retreat or if on the premises isolate. In both cases we will get tested and continue to isolate until a positive test result is returned.

  • See symptoms above or click here for all reported symptoms.
