COVID-19 RESPONSE

Year to Date

With a challenging year to date, and the uncertainty of the future, we are very hopeful that Busselton Jetty Swim will still take place as scheduled over the weekend of the 13th and 14th February, 2021. The organising committee have been meeting since COVID-19 hit our shores. We have been following Federal and State guidelines, restrictions and health directives closely, meeting with key stakeholders and preparing various event options.

We recognise the importance of the event and the impact it has on so many involved with the mental and physical health of our swimmers and the need to have a goal to train towards; the financial recovery of our region, local businesses and services; and the collaboration of artists, community groups, volunteers and wider public.

For that reason, the organising committee are continuining with the event, pending COVID-19 restrictions, with a focus on Recover – Unite – Celebrate.

There will be changes to ensure the continued health and safety of our swimmers, volunteers, spectators and general public but we guarantee that the weekend will still be the fun experience that we all love and cherish.

We respectfully request that all attending follow closely Federal and State COVID-19 guidelines and health directives to ensure our event is safe and hygienic for all involved. We encourage everybody attending to;

  • maintain physical distancing wherever possible
  • practising good personal hygiene
  • stay at home if unwell and get tested
  • download the COVIDSafe app
  • spectators will be asked to register both pre-event and on site via a QR code placed on signage at the event venue.

We will be following the State Government of Western Australia COVID Event Guidelines to develop a COVID Event Plan and will be maintaining sensible public health measures including good hygiene, rigorous cleaning regimes and physical distancing. These practices will help to reduce the potential risk of COVID-19 transmission within our region and state.

We will continue to report COVID-19 updates to our swimmers as we navigate our way through the road map to recovery and how it will affect the event.
