Message to COG members

Coronavirus: notification of changes to COG meetings, gatherings and field trips

Although Canberra is emerging from COVID lock-down the situation remains fluid and evolving.  For the foreseeable future, COG events may be cancelled or changed to on-line delivery at short notice.  Committee decisions on each event will be advised on the website.  Intending participants should check the website home page (right-hand panel), or look at the event details under “Our Activities”, and are asked to pay particular attention to any requirements for COVID safety.

The COG Committee will continue to keep developments under active review, and will continue to meet on-line until face-to-face meetings are possible.  We will continue to produce Gang-gang and Canberra Bird Notes, and to run the COG website and chatline – so please continue to submit notes and articles, and join chatline conversations.  As before, we seek the cooperation of members to minimise community spread of the virus, and ask that all follow the precautions that medical organisations and governments advise.

Face-to-face monthly meetings may resume in January 2022.  When physical meetings do resume they will be arranged according to COG’s approved Meeting Safety Plan.
