WHAT WE ARE DOING AT SPOT X
We are 100% committed to keeping our Spot X facility as clean as possible. We are doing this by ensuring that our staff are performing disinfectant wipe downs of all surfaces every hour. We also encourage all guests to wash their hands regularly, minimise the amount of cups used, and keep clothes off of the floor and so on. Furthermore, as we are a hostel as well as a surf camp, we will remain open moving forward. With travellers not wanting to stay in overcrowded places and also remain active, Spot X has many options to suit your needs.
All new guests are subject to a Covid19 test on arrival and must quarantine until the result is received. This is normally around 48 hours.
COVID19 ONSITE TESTS
Covid19 Tests are conducted by a medical professional onsite at camp every Monday and Thursday at 8am.
WHAT HAPPENS IF ANYONE EXPERIENCES SYMPTOMS
We have strict protocols in place to ensure the safety of all our guests. If you do experience any flu like symptoms please report to management and we will run a test to see the severity of your situation. All guests with flu like symptoms will be quarantined and escorted to the hospital for testing; these guests will remain in quarantine for as long as the test results are unknown.
ARE WE STILL SURFING
YES! Luckily we are still surfing as we have all measures into place to be able to do so. We are disinfecting the boards before each use and our clients all take down their own board by themselves to ensure the 1.5 obligated distance will be maintained. The wetsuits are also disinfected after each use and so is the entire surf school area and all its surfaces and equipment, including the sunscreen tubes and water tabs etc. Our surf lesson numbers depend on the current government restrictions at the time. Our surf teaching is hands OFF and only in strict emergencies will clients be touched by our coaches. We will also be keeping our first aid kid at close proximity to us on the beach to assure close proximity of face masks for safe resuscitation.
WHAT IF MY VISA IS EXPIRING
As the situation is today, you must apply for a new visa before your current visa expires. You may be eligible to be granted a bridging visa that will keep you lawful until a decision is made on your visa application. The Australian government is currently working on a way to deal with people whose visa is expiring and cannot go back home. We will keep you updated as soon as any final decisions on this matter have been made. The link below will give you more information on the current situation in Australia for travellers.
