Living with Covid-19

The risk of contracting COVID-19 in Tasmania through person to person transmission continues to increase, and the safety and well-being of staff, Councillors, volunteers and the community, is our top priority. Council’s Youth Programs key strategies against covid-19 is to implement to assist families to stay healthy include:

  • Promoting personal hygiene and cough and sneeze etiquette
  • Additional cleaning (especially of frequently touched surfaces)
  • Encouraging physical distancing
  • Supporting staff and families to stay home if they are unwell
  • Supporting those who are more at risk of severe illness if they contract COVID-19
  • Looking after the psychological wellbeing of young people, their families and our team.
  • fever
  • runny nose
  • cough, sore/itchy throat or
  • shortness of breath.

Cancelling Youth Programs

Temporary shutdown of youth programs may occur when a confirmed case of COVID-19 is identified at a site resulting in shortage of staff. All participants booked in will be notified prior to the activity. Refunds can be arranged according to Council’s Terms and conditions. Council will also monitor outbreak situations at nearby schools and consider pausing youth programs if the risk is deemed high.

Attending Council’s Youth Programs

Young People should not be sent to any of Council’s programs and activities if they feel unwell with cold or flu-like (or hay fever) symptoms including:

Young People should stay home and you should phone your GP or the Public Health Hotline on 1800 671 738 for a referral to be tested for COVID-19. Young People should only be returning to Council’s Youth Programs once their symptoms have passed. If your child has serious symptoms, such as difficulty breathing, call Triple Zero (000).

Mask Wearing

It is encouraged, but not necessary that all young people come prepared with a mask at all activities. Masks are encouraged to be worn when indoors, in transit and when in close proximity of others. Masks are not required to be worn outdoors unless physical distancing of 1.5 metres cannot be maintained. Individuals are responsible for providing their own mask.

Close contact

Changes to the definition and requirements of close contacts continue to change. Council will follow the State government’s close contact rules. If participants are deemed a close contact, we recommend they test for COVID-19 before attending a youth program, monitor any symptoms, wear a face mask during the activity, and consider not attending any high-risk settings. If a Council employee is considered a close contact, Council recommends they stay at home and not attend a school holiday activity.
