Covid19 Response

Covid19 Response

This is the collection of information regarding the Rowany baronial response to Covid19. It is a work in progress and will be updated as and when circumstances change. The information here is important so please take the time to read through this page

Baronial policy on Covid must be based on the legal State and Federal policies. The NSW recovery policy on Covid can be found here: https://www.nsw.gov.au/covid-19-recovery-plan

The primary policy we will be using is the SCA Ltd Covid Response Plan: https://seneschal.lochac.sca.org/files/2020/09/SCA-Ltd-Australia-COVID-Response-Plan.pdf

This is supported by the Kingdom policies and documentation. There are several components to this. The Kingdom Covid Response website can be found here: https://seneschal.lochac.sca.org/covid-19response/. The Restrictions Register available on this page shows the current restrictions in place for each State. Decisions whether to allow any type of in person gathering is based on this information.

When the Barony decides to resume in person activities there will be some new procedures in place.

  • If you are unwell please don’t attend events in person.
  • You will need to pre book for all activities, indoor or outdoor. A Google Doc will be provided as part of advertising for the event.
  • Cash payments will no longer be possible. Payment will need to be made by direct transfer or using Square.
  • The wearing of Covid appropriate masks is encouraged, especially indoors.
  • Venues will have a set maximum attendance. Currently that is set at 20 people in NSW.
  • We will not be able to use kitchen facilities at venues so please ensure you bring your own food, drink, etc. Please do not share food, drink, or cutlery.
  • For martial activities there are a few extra things as well.
    • Please do not share equipment such as swords unless they have been appropriately cleaned between people.
    • Helms / masks / protective gear must not be shared during a training session. After training the equipment must be cleaned appropriately before reuse.
    • Please bring your own gloves.
    • Please ensure you are aware of the new Kingdom rules for Covid appropriate inspections. This includes requirements for masks and gloves as documented.
