COVID-19 update

City of Prospect has taken a number of important and proactive steps to protect our community and staff as we face this unprecedented situation of the global COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic and the nationwide Public Health Emergency.

We need to take all reasonable steps available to protect our community, our Elected Members, our staff and volunteers (and their families) against the spread of this infection while ensuring we deliver services as close to ‘business as usual’ as possible.

City of Prospect is grateful to the Office for Ageing Well, SA Health for funding this project.

City of Prospect proudly supports our local walking group "Prospect Active Walkers" (PAWs), a Heart Foundation walking group.

The Heart Foundation has been able to meet the government requirements and has submitted a COVID-Safe Plan on behalf of the walking groups in South Australia. This is great news as our PAWS walkers can return from 22 June 2020.

As this activity takes place outside – not indoors – it does not have to meet the State Government requirement of 1 person per 4 square metres indoor rule. Although the group has had to make some adjustments to return, such as:-

  • Walkers must be registered participants of the program
  • Walkers must register their attendance with the Walk Organiser
  • Walkers must continue social distancing (keeping 1.5m distance from others)
  • Walkers must stay home if unwell (e.g. fever, cough, runny nose, sore throat etc)
  • Walkers must seek testing for any COVID-19 symptoms and report a positive test result to the Heart Foundation Walking team, and the Volunteer and Community Programs Coordinator at City of Prospect, as soon as possible
  • Walkers must practice good hand hygiene, and cover coughs and sneezes.

The Heart Foundation encourages all walkers to:

  • download the COVIDSAFE app and use it at all times;
  • get the annual flu (influenza) vaccination; and
  • talk to their doctor about whether rejoining the walks at this stage is appropriate for them, particularly if participants are vulnerable. This includes older walkers, and those with chronic health conditions.

Prospect Active Walkers walk three days a week (see times below), and would love to have you join them on one, two, or even all three days of the week.

Prams are welcome, but no dogs please.
