COVID-19 Safety Plan. As recommended by NSW Health, The Spit Swimming Club has registered as a COVID-safe organisation and we have always implemented safety plans in accordance with government requirements.
Full vaccination requirement. Participation in our race meets is conditional on being fully vaccinated. This decision has been taken with a view to preventing those who aren’t fully vaccinated from putting themselves at unnecessary risk.
How we’re affected. In many respects we race much as we did before but it must be stressed that if you are feeling unwell and are particularly suffering from cold or flu-like symptoms please do not attend.
Physical Distancing. Although we have seen a return to normal physical interaction please try to keep 1.5m from the nearest person at ALL times.
Hygiene and Cleaning. We’ll be providing hand sanitiser, alcohol wipes and gloves as part of our COVID kit which will be available poolside every Saturday for those who wish to use.
Record keeping. This is no longer a requirement.
