APS Covid guidance

  • Government advice states that individuals can still reduce the risk of catching and passing on COVID-19 by wearing a face covering in crowded and enclosed spaces, especially where you come into contact with people you do not usually meet, when rates of transmission are high.
  • Due to our age demographic and some specific vulnerabilities, we continue to strongly encourage that for indoor meeting rooms, including associated groups, you should wear a mask unless you are exempt.
  • Attendees must be fully vaccinated or have a negative COVID test from that afternoon.
  • Please do not attend a physical meeting if you feel unwell, have COVID symptoms, have tested positive in the past week or have been in close contact with someone who has either symptoms or a positive test.
  • We will not seek evidence of vaccination or negative tests. We rely on our members to act sensibly for the protection of others and themselves. We will continue to use hybrid meetings whenever possible.
  • This guidance will continue to be reviewed monthly by the committee.
