CLUB NEWS

Recent News for Club Members

As the club is in hibernation as a consequence on the COVID-19 virus, the regular monthly newsletter will be prepared and emailed to all members who have provided an email address.  The newsletter will also be posted to the members who do not have an email address. The Club Newsletters can be found under the Newsletter tab on the left hand side of the page or here

Updates - General Meeting's are back on!

The Club is again holding General Meetings on the third Wednesday of each month (except December), but owing to COVID-19 restrictions, we can only have 50 people in attendance at each meeting so you MUST book your attendance beforehand.  Attendance can be registered with Jola.  Note that because of the restrictions, there will be no morning tea provided but you can order coffee from the bar.  You can also bring snacks or refreshments yourself.  The current, normal social distancing rules must also apply.

Material from Probus South Pacific

Members may like to check out the Staying Connected E-Newsletter on the Probus South Pacific website here.  Also, the current edition of Active Retirees magazine is available online here.

COVID-19 Advice

The club has also received advice from Probus South Pacific on dealing with the COVID-19 Pandemic.  Some advice from that communication is provided below.

  • Follow the advice given by your healthcare provider, your national and local public health authority on how to protect yourself and others from COVID-19.
  • Any member or guest who has contracted COVID-19 should not attend a Probus meeting or activity until medical clearance has been provided. 
  • Any member or guest returning to Australia and/or New Zealand should not attend any Probus meetings or activities for a period of 14 days from their return date.
  • Any member or guest who has had any contact with a known positive case of COVID-19 or a person who is under quarantine or self-isolation awaiting confirmation testing, should not attend any Probus meetings or activities for at least 14 days after the contact was made or a medical clearance is given.
  • If a member or guest has any fever, cough, flu-like symptoms or is feeling unwell, they should not attend any Probus meetings or activities.
  • Members or guests that have an underlying medical condition like cardiovascular disease, respiratory condition, or diabetes, should avoid crowded areas or places where they could interact with people who are sick.
