On June 23, the NSW Premier announced new restrictions to fight the rising numbers of COVID-19 cases across Greater Sydney. The Y NSW has responded immediately to the Premier’s announcement and the Public Health Order.
The health, wellbeing and safety of the community is our top priority. We have taken vigilant steps to ensure our staff, customers, children and young people can enjoy our services and continue to connect in a COVID Safe way.
How do the new COVID restrictions impact the Y NSW?
The following changes apply from 4pm June 23 for one week. We will adapt with the NSW Government’s guidelines as required:
- Recreation and camping
- Outside School Hours Care (OSHC)
- Youth and Community programs
- Youth Parliament
If you have a question about a specific service, please contact your local Y. Our friendly team are here to help.
The Y NSW commitment to health, wellbeing and safety
Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, the Y has continued to be there for our communities. We have maintained the highest health and safety standards and adapted to stay open and here for you.
We continue to adhere to key safety measures in line with the latest expert health advice. All staff, visitors, customers and members must use the Service NSW QR code to check in at any Y NSW site. We practice COVID Safe cleaning, including thorough hand and equipment sanitisation. If any staff, customers or clients are unwell, we ask that they please stay home and follow NSW Health directives regarding testing and isolation.
We are equally committed to safeguarding our 1,400 incredible workforce across NSW and the ACT. Wherever possible, Y employees and volunteers are working remotely until further notice. Where employees must be on site, they are adhering to the 1 per 4sqm rule and wearing masks at all times.
To help us support the NSW Government in its endeavour to manage COVID-19 we ask that our Y family:
- Stay safe and stop the spread of COVID-19.
- Check in via Services NSW/QR codes when you go out.
- Get vaccinated when you are eligible.
- Get tested if you have the mildest of symptoms and even if you have been vaccinated.
- Wear a face mask when required.
