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."
There is no evidence that covid-19 spreads through recreational swimming but be aware of distancing rules
As part of our covid safety plan, we have implemented the following:
There is a 4 m2 per person at Fosterton Retreat.
No more than 20 people can gather together inside Fosterton House or outside in the open (See what you can and can't do under the rules in NSW.)
Whether inside or outside people not of the same family group need to observe the physical distancing rules
During cleaning all frequently touched surfaces are cleaned as well as wiped down with a disinfectant.
While 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.
As, always though, 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.
If anyone who has been at Fosterton Retreat tests positive to Covid-19 within 14 days of your visit, you will be informed.
