AUSTRALIAN MASTERS GAMES COVID-19 UPDATE
As the Games begin to get closer, it is time to reassure you that we are committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for all workforce members.
Under WH&S laws, the 2022 AMG is required to do all that is reasonably practicable to reduce or eliminate the risks to the health and safety of 2022 AMG workforce members, including the risks of COVID-19.
Based on ATAGI’s immunisation advice, vaccination is the most effective measure for reducing the risk and impact of COVID-19. Given the nature of the AMG event operations, and following a consultation process, the 2022 AMG is of the view that COVID-19 vaccination is a critical component of ensuring a safer and healthier environment.
The 2022 AMG has therefore decided that all 2022 AMG workforce members, including Sport Convenors and Committee Members, must be vaccinated against COVID-19, for as long as COVID-19 is active in our community, it presents a risk to our safety, event operations, and way of life.
Sport Convenors and Committee Members who meet the following requirements are permitted to continue on the journey with us:
Received two doses of an approved COVID-19 Vaccine; and
Demonstrate they have received two doses of an approved COVID-19 Vaccine; or
Receive an Exemption from the 2022 AMG.
How to Provide Proof of Vaccination:
Your Proof of COVID-19 Vaccination can include either a copy of an official Government Immunisation History Statement or a COVID-19 Digital Certificate and I ask that this is please sent through in electronic form via reply to this email by COB Friday 8 April 2022.
How to Apply for Exemption:
Your request for exemption can be sent through in writing via reply to this email, ensuring that you include any relevant medical evidence.
