This statement supersedes the previous Position Statement dated 17/03/2020
The OCA is closely connected with the five state Outdoors Peak bodies, the Australian Camps Association, Scouts Australia and several other related sector peaks. The OCA Board met today 27/03/2020 to discuss the National sector response to the current Covid-19 crisis.
As this crisis continues to evolve and change rapidly, there are increasing complexities and variances across National, State and Local Government jurisdictions. The OCA is awaiting further advice and now is no longer able to recommend a National position pertaining to contractual obligations.
OCA Guidance to constituent bodies:
- OCA advises that each constituent body seek to clarify the contractual obligations within their jurisdiction and communicate this to their members/stakeholders
- OCA will seek to clarify and share any information that may assist in support of constituents
