Visiting Churchill Island – Vaccination Economy Trials

Friends of Churchill Island Society Inc. > Articles by: Tom O'Dea (Webmaster)

Here is a message from Phillip Island Nature Parks about visiting their venues for the following two Friday-Sunday periods:
“We are pleased to advise that Churchill Island will be one of the 16 regional Victorian businesses participating in the Vaccinated Economy Trial taking place over the next two weeks.
We will be opening our doors on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday over the weekends of 15-17 October, and 22-24 October, approximately two weeks before Victoria is expected to reach the 70 percent double dose vaccination threshold.
This means that all visitors, staff, and volunteers (16 years and over) to Churchill Island during these two weekends of the trial must be double vaccinated, and must be able to provide evidence of their vaccination status, or a medical exemption.
Visitors can prove they are fully vaccinated on completion of a Service Victoria QR check-in that includes vaccination information; a COVID-19 digital certificate displayed through the Medicare App, Service Victoria App or equivalent smartphone wallet; a printed version of the COVID-19 digital certificate or immunisation history statement accessed via myGov to download and print or as provided by your vaccination provider, medical practitioner or the Australian Immunisation Register; or their exemption from COVID-19 vaccination as demonstrated by a valid, original letter from a medical practice.
The purpose of the trial is to gain a more detailed understanding of the operational barriers and enablers, which will help inform the settings required for Victorian businesses to operate in a COVIDSafe way when the state re-opens more broadly under the Roadmap to Deliver the National Plan.
We thank everyone for their support and understanding as we work with the State Government to help open up our community and state in a safe manner.”
