Your essential guide to what’s on in Canberra this weekend! Every Monday for more than seven years,…
Do your Saturday mornings equal heading to kids’ sport?
You’ve probably got the process down pat: remembering to pack the essentials, the all-important coffee for you, perhaps gumboots or warm layers, and also racking your brain for the names of all the other parents.
While remembering to pack the sunscreen, snacks, water and all the sports gear is still pretty standard, checking in with the Check in CBR app will probably be a new addition to your weekend sporting experience for 2021.
Checking in using the Check In CBR app is now mandatory at all restricted businesses, venues and activities across Canberra to help keep the community safe, and this includes organised sporting activities at both indoor and outdoor venues.
Whether you’re a participant or just a spectator, if you’re aged 16 years or over, you’ll need to check in when you arrive, and you will now find QR codes rolling out at all local enclosed ovals, district playing fields and neighbourhood ovals ready for the new season, as well as a range of indoor sporting venues across Canberra. Look for the QR code at obvious locations such as entry points, canteens and changerooms. Don’t have a smartphone? No sweat, just ask one of the sporting officials at the venue to help you out.
Speaking of sport, with the winter sporting season just kicking off, the exciting news is Canberra stadiums are now back to full 100 percent capacity. So even more of us can now get behind our local sporting teams and cheer on the Raiders, Brumbies or the Giants IRL. While you don’t need to check in at Manuka Oval or GIO Stadium with the app, it’s a good habit to get into for contact tracing purposes. Also make sure you grab a ticket and follow all the COVID-safe directions at the venue.
With the Easter long weekend coming up, make sure you stay in the habit of checking in when you’re out and about. Whether it’s at a café or restaurant, beauty salon, entertainment venue, gym, fitness club, church service or cultural institution, checking in using Check In CBR is a quick and easy way to protect yourself and your loved ones. If you don’t have a smartphone, just ask the venue to check you in using the Check In CBR app‘s business profile.
The Check in CBR app is secure and super simple. The data collected is held by ACT Health for 28 days and is only accessed if it’s required for contact tracing purposes. By using the Check In CBR app you’re doing your bit to help keep our community safe.
