Chalfont Chambers COVID-19 Policy
In accordance with Chalfont Chambers’ duty to ensure a workplace that is free of known hazards and health risks, it has become necessary for chambers to adopt a COVID-19 policy to safeguard the health of our employees; barristers and their families; visitors; and the community at large from infectious diseases that may be reduced by vaccination.
This policy is based on guidance from the NSW Government and NSW Health.
It is a condition of entry to Chalfont Chambers that ALL visitors display one or more of the following:
- A COVID-19 digital certificate displayed through the Medicare App, Service NSW App or equivalent smartphone wallet; or
- Printed version of the COVID-19 digital certificate or immunisation history statement; or
- Successful completion of a Service NSW QR check-in that includes vaccination confirmation; or
- Proof of medical exemption from COVID-19 vaccination AND a negative COVID-19 test result within 24 hours of intended entry to Chambers.
It is recognised that there are some members of the community who will be unable to comply with the above requirements and it is suggested that conferences etc., with those individuals take place by electronic means such as, telephone, skype, zoom, teams etc.
