Dear Members

COVID-19 COMPLIANCE UPDATE 

To manage the public health risks and to keep our members and the community safe, the Club will continue to follow the latest Health Department Mandates and Government Directions, as well as the Surf Life Saving Western Australia Mandate Guideline.

There are heavy fines for both individuals and organisations for breaches of the mandated regulations, so your Club is dedicated to ensuring compliance.

Please read the latest changes in the detailed information below:

Mask Wearing: Effective immediately, masks must be worn by all aged 12+ inside all parts of the Club buildings, including the life saving and equipment sheds, change rooms and first aid room.

Check in: Use the SafeWA and Service WA apps to check into the Club using the QR codes, these have been placed on every external door.

Covid Safe procedures: Do not visit the Club if you are feeling unwell. Follow social distancing instructions. Use hand sanitiser and wear a mask.
