Following a recent spike in the number of Covid-19 cases reported in Victoria, the Government recently (22 June 2020) changed the restrictions which affect volunteering at the Prom.
Please read the following instructions carefully.
Instructions to volunteers –
- You must pre-register on ParkConnect for all activities. (ParkConnect is Parks Victoria’s portal for all volunteer activity across the State)
- The upper limit on volunteer numbers for outdoor activities has been reduced from 20 to 10. We will regulate numbers of volunteers via ParkConnect, and if there are more pre-registrations than places, we will give preference to Friends of the Prom paid-up members. Given that the limit was recently reduced from 20 to 10, we have the option of setting up an additional activity if there are more than 10 registrations. The limit on group size would then be 10 for any one activity.
- Volunteers must sign in before work and sign out after finishing work so we can keep track of each volunteer.
- We ask volunteers on-site to take the usual measures at all times to reduce the risk of Covid-19 transmission. This includes being symptom-free for 2 weeks prior to this event, maintaining social distancing and hand hygiene, and no sharing of food or food utensils etc.
