Resumption of Walks in the Spring 2021 Program
The Committee has decided that the Spring 2021 program will resume from Friday, 29 October subject to the agreement of program coordinators, on a program-by-program basis.
- Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Thursday Strolls and Longer Spring Walks will all resume from Friday, 29 October.
- Tuesday Short and Easy Spring Walks will resume on 9 November.
- Wednesday walks will not recommence until the start of the Summer 2021-22 program on Wednesday 1 December.
As is our practice prior to each walk, those attending are required to ‘sign on’ and are reminded by a walk coordinator that their participation is voluntary and they walk at their own risk.
While proof of COVID-19 vaccination will not be sought, coordinators are also asked to remind those intending to walk that “if you are not fully vaccinated, your participation could be putting fellow walkers at risk”.
Coordinators will also have a QR code for WFP and all walkers are asked to use the Check in CBR app, if they are able, prior to setting off.
ACT Health advises we should each maintain good hand hygiene, and stay at home if unwell and get tested. In addition, there is a specific physical distancing restriction (or density limit) on those participating in organised outdoor activities of “1 person per 2 m2". It will be the responsibility of walkers to adhere to this at all times. Mask-wearing on walks will be a matter of individual choice.
Enjoy walking together again and keep safe.
