Although legal restrictions have been lifted, the WHS Committee is mindful that the government is still urging a degree of caution, including the expectation that people will wear face masks in enclosed or crowded spaces, out of respect for the safety of others. We therefore recommend that if attending an event you wear a mask, if at all possible.
