The PCCCT committee is monitoring the current COVID-19 situation. As the club races attract less than 500 people we do not feel the need to cancel races at this stage. This decision is based on current Department of Health recommendations. We will continue to monitor the situation for any changes. We will act on advice from the local Department of Health to ensure that our response to this ongoing and developing pandemic is appropriate and in line with the most up-to-date advice and guidelines.
The health and safety of our members is our number one priority and we will act on advice and directions from the Health Department if and when they change.
The PCCCT is taking measures to ensure we have a safe environment for our members. Consequently, the morning tea normally held after race 1 is cancelled.
We will have hand sanitiser available for use at races
We urge our members and supporters to adopt the following recommendations from the Department of Health:
- Do not shake hands or otherwise contact one another.
- Try to keep a distance of 1.5m from other people.
- Cover nose and mouth with tissue or flexed elbow when coughing or sneezing.
- Wash your hands with soap and water and dry with paper towel.
If you are displaying symptoms that are associated with COVID-19 you should seek medical advice. For the health and safety of other members we encourage you to refrain from attending any races when unwell.
The committee will keep you updated both on Facebook and our website if any new information comes to hand.
