Our Covid 19 Safety Plan has been updated for changes in the ACT Public Health Directions in mid May 2022.


The revised Plan is here. Note that:

• We no longer require the wearing of face masks, or checking into the Southern Cross using their QR code.

• The Government’s Health advice continues to strongly recommend (a) being fully vaccinated and (b) the wearing of face masks in public indoor settings, especially when interacting with vulnerable community members. Accordingly, we are happy for people to wear a mask if they so wish.
