19 March – Number 1
- No outdoor services
The Premier of NSW made the following comments, “We know already that for many people the symptoms aren’t even evident and they’re carrying the virus. That’s why all of us have to assume we have it. You have to act in a way as though you have it and how you won’t transfer that to other people.”
Given this framework, and concern about ensuring appropriate personal/social distancing with vulnerable age groups, the best advice we have is that whenever possible, people should avoid as much contact with other people as possible. Consequently, please do not go to outdoor services.
The guidelines about funerals are based on the pastoral exception of concern for the bereaved.
