President Update – 13 March 2020

COVID-19 Update

Dear Members,

As you would be aware, the Chief Medical Officer has advised the Federal Government that as of Monday, 16 March 2020 non-essential, organised mass gatherings of over 500 people should be discouraged. This will obviously have an impact on planning for ANZAC Day.

Representatives of RSL NSW are meeting with the NSW Government on Monday to further understand the impact of this advice for the delivery of ANZAC Day events in the city and across the state. We will be in a better position to inform sub-Branches of any impact on commemoration services after this meeting. In the meantime, we would encourage those organising ANZAC Day events to continue to monitor the advice from government and start to consider what impact this new advice may have on their local services. RSL NSW will provide further information and the impact on ANZAC Day as it comes to hand.

Yours,

Ray James
Acting President
