Georges River Life Centre

Conditions of Entry

As we reopen Georges River Life Centre for certain services and ministries, the safety of our visitors is of paramount importance. We have put measures in place to prioritise the health and wellbeing of everyone.  

The core principles adopted at Georges River Life Church (GRLC) are:

  • Creating safe environments – including observing protocols around limiting the number of visitors and staff within our spaces, installing signage to ensure physical distancing.
  • Vigilance in adhering to the most up-to-date state and federal government instructions and guidelines – our commitment is to stay up to date with all information to ensure safety.
  • Facilities to be closely maintained and monitored – including ongoing revision of hygiene protocols, increased cleaning and disinfecting, and providing hand sanitiser.
  • Information will be made available to our visitors – to help people stay safe.

The conditions of entry for visitors to our site have been updated to reflect these core principles and are outlined below. These same conditions of entry will also apply to GRLC staff.

  • are awaiting the results of a test for COVID-19;
  • have returned from international travel and failed to observe the government requirement to quarantine for 14 days;
  • have attended a known hotspot site and have not yet been tested. Please click here for the latest hotspot info from NSW Health.
