Casey U3A Inc.  Covid-19 Policy.

The Committee of Management of Casey U3A Inc. is duty-bound to act with care and diligence and in good faith.

The Committee has produced the following policy to minimise the risk to its members arising from the Covid-19 pandemic.

This policy is in line with Government policy, Public Health Orders and Local Government directions.

The Committee of Management of Casey U3A strongly recommends that all members, Tutors or Class leaders and Volunteers are double vaccinated against Covid – 19.

We respect and value all members of CaseyU3A and it’s for this reason that all unvaccinated members, for whatever reason, may only attend online classes until notified otherwise.

It is the responsibility of all of us to help protect ourselves, our families, friends and the public against this virus.
