CURRENT RESTRICTIONS

According to the latest restrictions, groups in Metropolitan Melbourne can undertake face-to-face Scouting as a whole section. The Scout Hall (55 McCracken St Kensington) has a density quotient – it is a limit of 1 person per 2 square metres (if a contact tracing QR code register is kept) – this is no more than 60 people in the Hall at any given time, including no more than 6 people in the kitchen area, and no more than 15 people in the storeroom. A reasonable distance between each Patrol or small group must be maintained at all times.

FACE MASKS

  • Face masks must be worn indoors 
  • However, there are a number of situations where face masks are still mandatory: Using public transport, Carpooling with people from another household, Visiting shopping centres or large shops, While serving food, Where physical separation can’t be maintained for extended periods
  • Unless an exemption applies, leaders and older youth members (12 years and older) will bring and carry face masks at all times. A full supply of disposable face masks will be also available if required

PARENT/GUARDIAN PICK UP AND DROP OFF

  • Parents dropping off and picking up are asked to stay outside of the Hall unless they have a specific question or discussion with a leader
  • Parents can wait in the front yard or outside the gate, but are asked to observe social distancing rules
  • Drop off / pick up must take less than 15 minutes otherwise we will need to record all of the parents as being in attendance for the meeting.
  • Meetings/sessions will start and end punctually so that parents can time their drop off and pick up and avoid waiting unnecessarily.

START: 6.30pm

FINISH: 8.30pm

New parent helper roster – WE NEED YOUR HELP!

The new parent helper roster has been developed and is available below and on the 6th Melbourne website. It is imperative that rostered parents turn up or proactively swap with another family in advance. The main task for Parent Helpers is to wipe down high touch areas and the kitchen at the end of the evening (see attached).  Parent Helpers are asked to come to the Hall at 8pm.

 

If a parent is unavailable, can you please take responsibility to swap with another family.

Parent Helpers will:

  • Attend the Hall at 8.00pm
  • Clean equipment and high-touch areas

As restrictions change, we will continue to consult the 6th Melbourne Group Leaders & Committee and update all parents on any alterations to this plan.

As we make this transition and into next year, we call upon the support of all parents to support the Scout program and to keep your family safe. If you have any concerns please contact us via email.

Yours in Scouting,

Richie, Jack, Chris and Jon.
