COVID-19 Red Cross Member guidelines for the safe return to Member-run activities

Guidelines and checklists are available for Red Cross member groups to prepare for returning to activities after 30 June 2020.

As you work through these guidelines you’ll see that for all member activities, your member group will need to appoint an Activity Lead, usually an office bearer or coordinator. Prior to commencing activities you will need to have approval from your State or Territory Director/Mobilisation Hub

Contact if you would like us to send these resources to you.
