Current GRC COVID Rules - Updates in Red

As notified by Nick a couple of days ago the GRC COVID Rules have been tightened based on NSW Govt changes.

1. Mandatory QR Code Check-in

Ensure you sign-in with the Service NSW QR Code if you are in the shed for any reason.

If you go on the water you need to write your name and boat into the book.

2. Downstairs and Rowing equipment: max 6 people per bay, wear masks indoors

  • Wear masks downstairs if you’re not actually sitting in a boat
