COVID-19 - Guidance for Paddlers and Paddle Clubs
Paddle Australia and our State Paddle Associations have had several requests from Paddle Clubs and disciplines seeking guidance in relation to the decisions that they are making as to what activities can take place and what extra precautions should be considered to minimise the risk of the spread of COVID-19. Paddle Australia stresses that decisions need to be made by each Paddle Club taking into account the different and unique circumstances in which they operate.
Please see the attached guidance document which is provided based on the best information available as at 19th March 2020. Further updates will be provided as new advice on the control of the spread of COVID-19 becomes available. Paddlers and Paddle Clubs are advised to refer to advice on the dedicated pages on the PA Website and the regular updates on that page in particular.
Yours in paddling,
