A MESSAGE FROM THE EVENT TEAM
We are continually adapting our program and event to be safe for both participants and staff in a COVID-19 world. These plans will continue to evolve based on advice from relevant authorities, including the Victorian Chief Medical Officer. We are currently preparing for an event that can run during Fourth Step restrictions (50 people together in outdoor space) which it is predicted that Victoria will move to by December, 2020.
Firstly, we will be strictly limiting registration numbers to ensure we can proceed within the guidelines of a Fourth Step restriction period.
Secondly, due to the nature of the event, we have the option to start teams one at time. This will reduce mass groupings of people and help us manage numbers at each Wellness Stop.
Thirdly, we have moved our Wellness Stops away from sporting grounds. This will mean that should there be an outbreak early 2021, and Victoria returns to greater restrictions, we will be able to move to dates in May and October as there will be no conflict with venue hire.
Finally, we will be implementing a very detailed CoVID-19 Safe Plan for all aspects of the event to reduce contact points, increase cleaning, ensure social distancing and enable contact tracing.
Completing the challenge as a team is a key component of the mental health strategy of this program. We are extremely confident that, with adaption and the co-operation and understanding of participants, the team challenge will run in 2021. If we are all committed to working together, we will be able to go ahead.
The team challenge will at no stage be moved to a virtual event platform, as this is not in keeping with our mental wellbeing approach.
