Greyhounds As Pets Announce COVID Vaccination Requirement
Dec 01, 2021
Greyhounds As Pets (GAP) announces that a new COVID vaccination requirement for all staff, customers, volunteers, visitors, suppliers and industry participants will apply from 26th December 2021.
The requirement means that anyone aged 16 and over intending to enter the Greyhounds As Pets venue for any purpose from 12:01am on 26th December 2021 will need to demonstrate that they have had at least their first vaccination. Proof of double vaccination will be required prior to entry from 12:01pm on 24th January 2022.
This vaccination requirement applies to any person visiting the Greyhounds As Pets or any other Greyhound Racing SA premises, which customers, volunteers, visitors, suppliers and industry participants and staff. The vaccination requirement applies at all times.
GAP is introducing a requirement to wear masks in all shared indoor spaces.
Greyhound Racing SA (GRSA) Chairman Grantley Stevens explained that the vaccination requirement decision was not made lightly.
“It is a necessary response to the introduction by SA Health of the new Test, Trace, Isolate and Quarantine (TTIQ) model and the opening of South Australian borders on 23rd November 2021. Two key pillars of the TTIQ are vaccination and mask wearing, with the absence of either measure posing significant quarantine implications for close contacts in the event of community transmission.”
A COVID-19 Digital Certificate will need to be sighted via a smart phone or in the form of a printed immunisation certificate. Medical exemptions will only be recognised where they are in the form approved by SA Health. Where necessary, extra COVID-Safe practices may be imposed and could include a requirement for booster shots. The requirement will be enforced by GRSA and clubs at all venues.
