Rambles

Cairns U3A Ramblers will re-commence in June 2020

In light of the continuing Covid 19 social distancing restrictions the following will apply to all walks:

  • Strict limit of 10 walkers will apply to all walks, please notify me if you want to walk, don’t turn up as an “extra” there may not be a space  
  • Walks will be located in reasonable distance to Cairns to negate the need to car pool.
  • Keep 1.5mts distance from each other at all times.  I will try to pick walks were social distancing is easiest.
  • Please don’t attend a walk if you have any signs of illness.
  • Carry your own hand sanitiser.

It is recommended that you install the COVIDsafe app, this increases the safety of all walkers in the event of the need to contact trace. Please book with the convener (convener details can be found in the bulletin).
