As we commemorate Anzac Day tomorrow, follow this advice to help stay COVIDSafe.
Wear a mask where you cannot physically distance, especially in crowds or if meeting indoors after the service.
If you have symptoms, stay home and get a test. As important as the Anzac Day March and our Dawn Services are, there may be elderly and vulnerable people there we need to protect.
If meeting indoors, open doors and windows to maximise air flow and ensure there’s good ventilation.
