COVID SAFETY PROTOCOLS

Updated 14 February 2022

Every decision we make at Corrugated Iron has the wellbeing of our community at its heart.

Corrugated Iron Youth Arts operates under an approved Northern Territory COVID Safe Plan that details our commitment to protecting your health, safety and wellbeing when you come to a Corrugated Iron workshop - whether you're a participant, parent, team member or visitor.

 

Please take a moment to review our current health and safety measures, which we continue to review in line with the latest Northern Territory Government health guidelines.

Close Contacts

 

Unlike schools, Corrugated Iron is not classified as an essential service by the NT Government. Therefore our rules around school-aged close contacts are different.

 

If a participant is a close contact - regardless of age - they must not attend their Corrugated Iron workshop for a period of 7 days.

 

The NT Government defines a close contact as a person that:

  • resides in the same household /premises as a COVID-19 positive person

  • has spent four hours or more indoors with a COVID-19 positive person while they were infectious. A person's infectious period is usually the two days before they developed symptoms, or two days before they tested positive if they did not have symptoms.
     

Parents - What We'd Like You to Do

  • If your young person is sick or unwell please ensure that they do not attend their workshop

  • Please collect your young person from the venue foyer at the end of the workshop, we ask that parents/carers do not enter the workshop venue

  • Ensure that your young person brings their own water bottle

  • If your young person has been confirmed with COVID19 following attendance at a workshop, please notify Corrugated Iron Youth Arts ASAP - ph: 89 48 3200.

 

Participants - How to Participate Safely

  • Do not attend your workshop if you are feeling unwell

  • Sanitise your hands on entering and exiting the workshop/class venue as well as throughout the workshop

  • Maintain physical distancing of 1.5 metres

  • Face masks are optional - you may wear one if you feel comfortable

  • Bring your own water bottle and take all personal items with you when leaving
     

What We're Doing to Keep You Safe

  • Our workshops have strict caps on participant numbers in line with social distancing requirements

  • We will sanitise high contact surfaces after each workshop

  • Our venues are well ventilated

  • Our staff, tutors and teaching artists are fully vaccinated as required by the Northern Territory Government and we are adhering to the directives outlined by the Northern Territory's Chief Health Officer​

  • We will continuously monitor Federal and NT COVID Safe requirements to ensure that our protocols and practices are up to date.
