YOU and YOUR safety are very important to us and so are the RULES

 

We're only too aware of the impact of COVID 19 on the mental health of Aussies and while we can't wait to get outside in the fresh air and walk and talk with you, keeping our community safe is of the utmost importance to us too.

 

The first few WALK events taking place this year are Queensland based and as required we are working to the relevant COVID 19 Safe Event Checklist to ensure we deliver you the safest experience we can.

 

Before the WALK

  • We are working to an approved COVIDSafe Plan as required by relevant federal, state and local health authorities.

  • Registration details will require you to share relevant contact information for every individual so we are able to get in touch with you if need be

  • We may need to assign you to a grouped arrival/registration time to manage and limit the number of people registering at any one time. You will be notified of this via email in your safety briefing update.

  • We are keeping our website updated with all information and we will send a safety briefing update to you via email in the week prior to the event.

On the day at REGISTRATION​

  • All volunteer event staff will be fully briefed and wearing masks 

  • There will be dedicated Marshals to managing social distancing compliance 

  •  Hand sanitiser will be available to you at stations We may need to provide you with staggered registration and start times to manage on-site traffic 

  • Registration and T-shirt collection areas will include digital options and marked social distancing requirements will be shown.

  • We  encourage you to register as efficiently as you can and disperse to a safe socially distanced area before you start 

While you are WALKING 

  • As it's not a race we encourage you to spread out across the WALK path and maintain social distancing requirements at all times.

  • Please bring your own water bottle to ensure good hydration and safe use

When you're done

  • While we'd love you to stay around and enjoy the activity that each local event provides we still need you to do so in a safe and compliant manner.

  • Every location will feature signage and instruction per their specific event details on-site for you to follow

Just in case we ASK 

  • If you feel unwell, have a cough, cold or fever, sore throat, fatigue or shortness of breath. We will miss you but please stay home

  • If during the WALK you feel unwell and need medical assistance please locate a Marshal, event official, or First Aid officer.

  • Maintaining the required social/physical distance is your responsibility, please do it

  • Please follow the signage and instructions

  • Keep on eye out on the website, social media and email for event updates 

In the EVENT we did get COVID cancelled.

Just in case the current walk format is cancelled because of COVID we'll still be going ahead just differently. We'd love you to get out on the day of the event and walk and talk with us. We will shift it online and do it virtually! We encourage you to share it on socials while adhering to any necessary restrictions, of course.  Given we are raising vital funds for mental health research and it's honestly never been more important, your ticket registration donation will make a huge difference to what Australian Rotary Health research funding can achieve. Your shiny new t-shirt will still be waiting for you to collect and we'll keep you up to date of a safe place and time for that to happen via email in the event we can't go ahead on the day.

LET'S GET WALKING AND GET EVERYONE TALKING ABOUT MENTAL HEALTH
