January 2022

Hello Members,

Welcome everyone to 2022. Another year has passed, and hopefully, we can all have an enjoyable year.

COVID-19 POLICY: 
U3A Gympie has adopted a COVID-19 Policy in line with the recommendations of U3A Queensland Network. Copies of the policy documents are available for viewing on our website.

This means that attendance at all U3A Gympie classes and functions in 2022 will depend on every person being fully vaccinated, or medically exempt. This will need to be verified by each member producing their proof of either full vaccination or their medical exemption registered on the Australian Immunisation Register. On sighting proof we will not be recording anyone’s vaccination or exemption details, but will note that they comply with our policy.  We ask for everyone’s cooperation in this matter.

U3A Gympie has a duty of care to our members but all of us have personal responsibilities to protect ourselves and others through COVID-19 safe practice. We must all be mindful that the management of risks around catching COVID-19 is broader than just being vaccinated.

OPEN DAY FUNCTION on Wednesday 12 January 2022.
I look forward to seeing as many of you as possible in attendance on the day at Gympie Bowls Club Southside. Hours are from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm. Please do not arrive early – there will be no admissions earlier than 10:00 amYour patience will be needed as we go through the check-in process. 

Refreshments will not be available on the day, so tutors, committee members, and volunteers who will be there for the four hours are advised to bring along their own drinks, and snacks on the day.   All members and visitors must still sign in to the venue QR code and abide by the appropriate social-distancing, mask-wearing, and sanitising rules.

Evie, President
