COVID SAFETY PLAN

Chisel and Dowel Woodworking School has firm COVID-safe protocols in place. It is aware of the need to remain familiar with ever-changing COVID regulations. Students are asked to not attend class if they have flu or COVID like symptoms or if someone in close contact is currently in home isolation. If using public transport to attend our workshops students are asked to adhere to NSW rules for the wearing of face masks.


COVID Safe Check In


Prior to entry to our workshop, you will be asked to check in using the Service NSW COVID Safe check feature on your mobile phone. If you cannot check-in using your phone, another person may use their phone to
check you in. Should you not have a phone please enter your contact details manually into the register we have provided. Contact details included on this register are kept for 28
days in accordance with NSW government regulations, after which the details are destroyed. If a person refuses to check in, entry to that person may be refused. Refusal of entry is entirely at the discretion of Management. Prior to refusal, Management will speak to the person to understand their circumstances, keeping in mind that the well-being of staff and students is at the forefront of any decisions made by Management.
