If COVID -19 is not introduced in the facility it cannot spread. We ask all attendees, including facilitators and speakers to complete a COVID-19 Personal Assessment Form to assess their suitability to attend prior to coming to CLD. This may be self-assessed and not need to be returned
Or if deemed necessary by your facilitator assessed and returned to CLD prior to attendance.
N.B. If your situation changes after you complete the form you must re-assess your fitness to attend and inform your facilitator.
