SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) – CSSA policy
CSSA members and Clubs should help delay transmission of COVID-19 during permitted activities by following government guidance for the territory and adapting as guidance develops.
- Maintenance and private use of members’ equipment is acceptable, subject to compliance with government guidelines.
- Maintenance and use of Club equipment and premises is acceptable, subject to compliance with government guidelines.
- Members required to self-isolate (because of symptoms of COVID-19 in their household or because of their own susceptibility) must stay away from Club facilities.
- All CSSA events should be suspended until government guidance permits recommencement.
Clubs should establish arrangements to manage risks and prevent transmission through use, if any, of Club buildings or equipment.

Disruption is likely to continue for some time.
Experts predict that many of us will require hospitalisation over the coming months – let’s help those who help us. Stay safe and look out for one another.
