PASA - Pastel Artists of South Australia

Message from the PASA President



Dear PASA Members, 

In response to the latest outbreaks of the Delta variant of COVID-19, the Government of South Australia has introduced changes to the COVID-Safe Restrictions that go into effect from today. Below are the specific changes for our meetings based on our COVID-Safe Plan. These may change in the coming days and may also change according to the density arrangements at each venue that we hire.

*  Density Requirement (Capacity Limits)
The density requirements have returned to 1 person per 2 square metres. This means that the number of people allowed in each of the rooms at the venues PASA uses has decreased. Please pay attention to the signs posted in halls which indicate the limits.

*  Masks
You do not have to wear a mask during meetings, but you should feel comfortable to do so if you wish. If the meeting hall has more than half the allowable number in persons in attendance in it, then masks may become mandatory. Please bring a mask with you to meetings in case they are required. 

*  QR code sign-in 
You will still need to sign in with the QR code or on the register each time you enter the building. A Covid Marshall will be in attendance to ensure that you complete the check in process. 

*  Physical Distancing
It is really important that we continue to maintain the 1.5 metre physical distancing rule in our community. If you are in a household or 'bubble' with others, you are still welcome to sit together, but please maintain the 1.5 metre distance between groups. Chairs and tables are to be spaced during painting or demonstrations.

*  Afternoon tea or lunch
You can continue to bring your own personal afternoon tea or lunch, but no sharing of biscuits or food and drinks. It remains important that people practice social distancing as much as possible.
