RASCAL and Covid-19

While the COVID-19 threat continues to evolve, so does the relevant government’s responses.  RASCAL’s management of COVID is in line with the NSW Government’s current rules, with additional controls as required to ensure that our shared living model remains safe for our members and their guests.

With the Stay at Home orders lifted for the Snowy Monaro LGA on the 16th of September, the RASCAL lodge is once again available for use by members and their guests.  Anyone wishing to use the lodge:
  • Must not be subject to any form of stay at home, lockdown or quarantine requirements
  • Must comply with RASCAL's current COVID management plan, and
  • Must comply with all local, state or territory or federal government requirements, including any changes to the rules which come into effect while people at in the lodge
  • For the purposes of interpreting the rules, the lodge is classed as a commercial premises, and therefore the wearing of masks is mandatory when in any public spaces within the lodge

Until advised otherwise, the following requirements will apply for anyone wishing to enter, or stay in the lodge:
  • Anyone who is currently subject to any sort of movement restriction imposed by local, state or federal government will not be able to enter the lodge.  This includes any stay at home, isolate or quarantine directives.
  • Anyone who is staying at the lodge and becomes subject to any sort of movement restriction imposed by local, state, or federal government must immediately inform the President and make plans to leave the lodge within an agreed timeframe.  The committee has determined that the lodge is not a suitable location to serve a stay at home/isolate/quarantine requirement, and as such anyone under one of these requirements must leave.
  • Anyone accessing the lodge must comply with both the RASCAL COVID-19 management plan, and any personal requirements imposed by any local, state or federal government (eg mask wearing, QR code check-in)
  • Anyone accessing the lodge will need to determine whether any and all current COVID restrictions apply to them, and if requested by the committee will provide information to help the committee to understand how the rules apply
  • Anyone accessing the lodge agrees that the committee will have the final decision around whether they can, or can not use the lodge and agrees to follow any directions around leaving the lodge from the committee through either the President or Office Manager
Any members with a booking which is impacted by these requirements, please contact the Office Manager via email.

The committee is working hard to ensure that we provide a safe environment for our members and their guests and we thank you for committing to comply with your personal requirements, and to assist the club to comply with our requirements.
