Dear Coaches and Clubs,

We have been advised by the Launceston City Council that Northern Tasmanian Athletics are required to complete a Covid Safe Workplace Plan and submit this to Community Sport and Recreation for approval.  After this has been approved by them it will be returned to the Council and then council will attend the Athletic Centre and put all the signage up that is required.

Until this process has been completed the Athletic Centre will be closed from Friday 22nd May 2020 until further notice.  This will mean that all fobs will be de-activated from 11.59pm on this day.

We also have been advised that Worksafe Tasmania are doing spot checks of all Council venues and if anyone is found on site before this process is completed that there will be serious consequences not only for the individual or individual’s but also the organisation.

We are in the process of completing the Plan for submission and hopefully the Centre will not be closed for too long.

We thank you all for your patience in this very different time but this closure has to happen for the health and safety of us all.

We will keep you all updated on the progress.

Sandra Speers

President

Northern Tasmanian Athletics.
