MWA Update – 28-5-20

Please find below an update (taken from an email) from Joe McCarthy regarding the return to motorcycling activities post Covid-19. At this stage it is looking positive that our June meeting at Narrogin will be going ahead based on recent government movements regarding crowd sizes (always subject to change).

    Hi all
    Please see below a simplified version of how the sport will begin on July 1. As a simple rule contact your land owner and let them know your plans. We do not require you to send us any COVID-19 forms .They are there for you to use if your council or landowner requires them. Any questions give us a call at the office. Please also consider calling the COVID -19 helpline –COVID-19 Public Health Operations phone number: 6373 2222.
The most important aspects to remember are below
  1. Social distancing at all times
  2. Practice good hygiene
  3. Observe the maximum number of people per area rule- currently is 20 in WA. If this changes we will email all clubs immediately
