As the State Government has announced the easing of restrictions, Council is preparing a schedule to reopen its facilities in accordance with the State’s requirements.
Northern Midlands Council’s priority is to ensure the safety and well-being of our visitors, staff, volunteers and the community.
The action that Council is taking to re-open its facilities will be staged due to the availability of resources, the preparation of COVID-19 safety plans and ultimately on public health advice from the State Government.
Northern Midlands Council’s staged response commenced from 18 May 2020, with the following measures effective until further notice.
Accordingly, prior to the opening of the facilities, the responsible party is required to complete and provide a COVID-19 Safety Plan to Council for review. The plan will take account of social distancing, 4m2 per person allowance and the limit of 10 people within the space, and hygiene.
In the case of AFL training at facilities, please also refer to the AFL Tasmania website. AFL Clubs training at Council facilities will also need to adhere to the requirements of AFL Tasmania, you can access the AFL Tasmania website through this link.
Worksafe’s COVID-19 Safety Plan Template and Fact Sheet are available on the Worksafe website.
We encourage everyone to continue to familiarise themselves with the current advice provided by the Tasmanian Government on the Coronavirus website and Road to Recovery web page.
