In order to meet our valued client’s quite understandable enthusiasm to get out and about again after months of lockdown, our clients will be required to meet certain conditions in order to participate on outings. These conditions only apply to our social outings program at the moment – anyone following daily media reports will appreciate the uncertainties around ‘opening up.’
The following conditions of travel will apply to outings only until further notice:
By registering for an outing or trip with Connect, you confirm that you are fully COVID-19 vaccinated as of 1 November 2021, or prior to the date of the first outing on which you intend to participate.
Further, you acknowledge that venues Connect visits as part of its provision of services may require your registration, digital or otherwise, and may also require you to provide evidence of your vaccination status. Connect will not be liable to you in any way if you are refused entry by any such venue due to an inability to meet such venue entry requirements. In such circumstances, Connect will be unable to make alternative arrangements.
Be sure to keep an eye out for further updates.
ACCESSING YOUR VACCINATION RECORDS
To access your vaccination record, you can log in to www.my.gov.au. If you do not have access to a device to obtain this information, ask a family member or trusted friend to help you. If you have a smart device, this record can be downloaded on your device, and shown at point of entry. Otherwise, you can print it out and keep with you.
For those who don’t have a smartphone, you can call the Australian Immunisation Register (AIR) on 1800 653 809 to have a copy of your immunisation history posted to you. Keep in mind, this may take up to 14 days to arrive.
COVID19 CHECK-IN CARD
QR check-in is required at ALL venues. If you do not own a smart phone in order to download the Service NSW App, you can now apply for a Service NSW Covid19 Check-in card. These are specifically for those people who may not have a smart phone or other device to use when checking into venues. The card has a QR code which is linked to an individual and can be kept in your wallet for multiple use. This card is scanned upon entry to a venue, rather than requiring the individual to manually sign in.
The application process is online and takes just a few seconds. Again, if you don’t have access to a computer or device, ask a friend or family member to help you, or ask us for help.
The health and safety of our clients and staff is paramount. Connect continues to act on the public health advice of NSW Health and TFNSW to get you to your destination and home again safely.
Connect requires staff and clients alike to continue wearing masks on all services. Sanitiser and masks are readily available in all vehicles – though you are advised to carry your own with you at all times.
Connect continues its vigorous vehicle and equipment cleaning regime. We ask valued clients to follow staff directions carefully with regards to seating and social distancing on the vehicles.
A reminder that if you are unwell, seek medical attention. We ask that you call the office ahead of time to cancel any upcoming bookings.
If you have any concerns or questions, please phone our office on 9558 6800 and speak to one of our friendly staff.
