COVID-19 Info

In order to keep climbing with the club safe during a pandemic, we introduce some procedures and rules that are to follow.

Our situation in the gym is a bit special and not ideal for containing infectious diseases. We are all cramped in a small room and touch surfaces and gear that cannot be cleaned efficiently. Please keep to the following procedures.

Before climbing:

Make sure you are healthy and do not have any of the symptoms!

  • Do you have fever? Cough? Sore throat? Headache? Shortness of breath?
  • Has anyone in your household had these symptoms in the last 14 days?
  • Have you been in contact with anyone having COVID-19 in the last 14 days?

If so, please do not come to the climbing gym in order to protect the health of others!

We will check your temperature before registering and will not allow you in if it exceeds 37.5 degrees.

Please make sure you understand and agree with the following procedures and rules before attending. There is a certain risk involved for you and others. Be aware of that risk and take care!

During climbing events:

Physical distancing

  • Keep 1.5m distance from your climbing partner and others in the gym.
  • Leave one climbing route free next to a climbing team.

Hand sanitizing

  • Please wash or sanitize your hands when entering the gym.
  • Use the hand sanitizer after you change a climbing route/set of anchors.

Treat the walls, belay devices, and ropes as if they are infected. They cannot be cleaned efficiently.

Gear

Gear will be lay out for everyone to take upon arrival and should be placed in boxes when leaving the gym. We try to keep the contact as little as possible. The gear cannot be disinfected chemically, but will be set aside for 7 days in order to have potential virulent particles become inactive. This is not the best way of disinfecting. Please be aware of that when using rental gear. It is recommended to use your own gear. We might also run short of gear, if we have multiple events per week.

Again! Please be aware of the risk involved for you and others. The club is run by volunteers and we are trying to keep the risk of infections as low as possible. We will have to make sure that everyone is safe and non-compliance with the procedures can lead to exclusion from climbing with the club.

Fortunately,
the situation is not serious in FN QLD at the moment, but this can chance
rapidly.

Thank you
very much for your understanding!

Happy (and safe) climbing!!!
