NSW CoVid-19 Restrictions at PTTA Club

With the recent outbreak of CoVid-19 hotspots in Greater Sydney and the SA Government’s restrictions on travel to SA from Greater Sydney and other parts of NSW the PTTA Management Committee have made this decision.

The Club will not accept any interstate player from Greater Sydney area at the Club, unless:

  • They have followed ALL SA Health and Border Travel guidelines and directives
  • Have completed the necessary quarantine period
  • Have completed the specified number of CoVid-19 tests, returning a NEGATIVE result for each test

If you have guests coming and are in direct contact with people from Greater Sydney who are arriving in Adelaide AFTER 11.59pm Sunday 20th December 2020, please DO NOT come to the Club until all the above directives have been achieved.

If they have come since the initial Greater Sydney outbreak of 11th December 2020, please ensure that you and they have had a CoVid-19 test, with a NEGATIVE result.

Our Club has many vulnerable and aged members, and the Management Committee believes that the safety and well being is of paramount concern for our members and that we ALL need to ensure risks are minimised.

This may change as the SA Health directives change, the Club will review its policies accordingly in-line with SA Government restrictions.

Essentially the Club wants to stay OPEN and SAFE.

Player Memo – 30th November 2020

The South Australian Government is introducing COVID SAfe Check-In, to enhance contact tracing and keep our community COVID safe. If someone in South Australia tests positive to COVID-19, COVID SAfe Check-In enables tracers to quickly contact others who may have been exposed to the virus, controlling the spread.

The mySA GOV app will have the COVID SAfe Check-In feature added to it before 1 December, which once opened, will allow you to scan a business’s QR code.

The app securely collects limited personal information as you enter a business or venue. Your details will only be kept for 28 days and will only be released to SA Health for official contact tracing purposes. COVID SAfe Check In will roll out from Tuesday 1 December 2020 and more information about how to use it will be made available soon. You will not need to sign up for a mySA GOV account to use the COVID Safe Check-In, so you will not need to provide driver’s licence or vehicle registration details.

For businesses

From Monday 30 November, businesses (including PTTA) with a COVID-Safe plan will receive a new COVID-Safe plan via email that includes a QR code to print off and display in a prominent location within your business. It will be mandatory for all public activities with a COVID-Safe plan to display their QR code from Tuesday 1 December 2020.

When players arrive at PTTA Club, they can check in by scanning the QR code using their mobile phone. You will then receive a text confirmation of the check in.

Information from players will be collected and stored securely in one place for 28 days, only released to SA Health for official contact tracing purposes. The app makes record keeping and contact tracing safe and easy.

In Essence………

The Club will re-open from Tuesday 1st December 2020 - session (9.00 to 11.30am)

Attending Players – if you are unsure, please seek assistance from the session Group Leader.

Note – IT IS NOT compulsory to have a smartphone or the app to attend PTTA, but for those who have the device we encourage this type of check-in, however ALL players will still be required to fill in the attendance daily form (for reconciling Club funds etc.), as well as for the Club’s record of attendance.

**** NOTE ****

If you have been to any of the CoVid-19 Adelaide hotspots as advised by SA Health, then please stay away from the Club until the self-quarantine period has finished.

We encourage you to check back on the website to receive any updates, in the interim please stay safe and welcome back!
