HMAC REEKERS FLYING FIELD CLOSED

HMAC REEKERS FLYING FIELD

CLOSED

UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE IN RESPONSE TO THE

COVID 19 VIRUS LEVEL 4 STATUS

 

Under the Government guidelines for level 4 we are taking the response to mean “No to flying”. It’s not so much that you may come across someone else and spread/pickup the virus through contact, but more that if you were to have a serious harm accident whilst there, you are on your own. Likewise, if someone else is there, they shouldn’t be put in the position of having to take care of you. Also, any emergency response and care required takes away from those that may need it under Covid19.

Furthermore, consider the possibility of spreading the virus by opening gates, holding on to gate handles, removing the Electric fence handles and lowering fence standards around the field. All of these actions hold the potential to transmit the virus through contact with surfaces.

Play it safe, stay at home, head to the workshop and build 🙂

 

Covid-19 alert level 4

Fellow Flyers

The Prime Minister has today ( Monday 23 March ) announced that New Zealand’s Covid-19 alert level has risen to three and the country will go to level 4 – full lockdown in 48 hours.

Essential services will continue but schools and non-essential businesses will be closed from tomorrow. For MFNZ members, this means no events or club gatherings. People can still go outside for recreation but must follow social distancing advice (and common sense) to limit the spread of the virus  – keep at least two metres apart, cover coughs or sneezes, and wash your hands frequently.

Please keep up to date, the best and most up to date source of advice is the NZ Government Covid-19 website https://covid19.govt.nz/latest-updates./

Stay well!
