Additional changes to COVID policies   Effective date 3/7/22

Corpora has updated their guidance with regard to two of the policies we are following in the Midrealm and as such we have to update our procedures (PDF available).

Contact tracing

Effective immediately the requirement to gather contact tracing information and/or preregister for an event is lifted. You are still expected to post the COVID disclaimer on all event websites and prominently on site.

What this means to you:
You may still request  pre-registration through SCArs but you may now also accept attendees at the door and accept payment at troll the day of the event. If you wish to encourage pre-registration to facilitate planning you may choose to increase the cost of day of event cost, e.g. $15 in advance, $20 day of registration.

You no longer have to collect a contact tracing sheet at each event or meeting.

COVID SAFE

The requirement to check that each attendee has proof of vaccination or proof of a negative covid test within 72 hours of the event remains however the manner of attesting to that fact has changed.

At check in or at a local meeting the documents must be viewed and then the member will sign an attestation confirming that they have provided such proof. Every person in attendance, including staff must sign the document. This document must then be sent to the waiver deputy within 30 days of the event/meeting/practice (waivers@midrealm.org) where it will be filed and kept for 7 years.

The attestation can be found here (pdf).

What this means to you:
Proof of vaccination can be checked with proof of membership or preregistration at the gate of an event. Busy events may have more than one sheet simultaneously. The COVIDSAFE attestation is now treated identically to every other waiver. There is no requirement for only a single checker or check in by letter of last name. This will speed up the process of checking in for events.

Each person at the event/meeting/practice must have their proof checked by someone and they must sign the form.

Midrealm tiers

With the removal of the SCA corpora requirement for pre-registration/contact tracing the tiers will remain the same with the exception that Tier 1 will now essentially mean return to pre-pandemic norms.
