COVID-19 SAFE VOYAGING MEASURES

We are pleased to announce that voyages in Young Endeavour will continue in 2022. 

 

In response to advice from government and health authorities, we have developed a number of COVID-19 safe measures to allow voyages to resume as safely as possible. 

This information is provided to applicants and their families so that they can make an informed decision about participation, and is current at the time of publication. Please check back for the most current advice.

 

The COVID-19 Safe measures currently in place for voyages in Young Endeavour are:

 

Vaccination. Youth Crew will be asked to provide a copy of their immunisation history statement or COVID-19 digital vaccination certificate as proof of a full course of vaccination prior to embarkation. The full course of COVID-19 vaccination must be completed at least 14 days prior to embarking for the voyage.

 

Advice to Youth Crew Prior to Boarding. Youth Crew experiencing cold or flu-like symptoms prior to embarkation are to notify the Scheme and withdraw from the voyage. Youth Crew who, within 14 days of scheduled departure, have been in contact with a COVID-19 positive person, have been identified as a close or casual contact, or who have been to a location identified by health authorities as a current hot spot are to notify the Scheme and withdraw from the voyage.

 

Voyage Departure and Arrival. The Scheme recommends that Youth Crew wear masks when travelling to join the ship. Where possible, Youth Crew should travel to the designated wharf or meeting point alone, or accompanied by a single family member or friend. No family members or friends will be permitted to embark Young Endeavour. This will reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission to both the Staff Crew and Youth Crew from asymptomatic infected people.

 

Self-Declaration on Embarkation. Youth Crew will be required to make a self-declaration to Staff Crew on arrival, declaring whether they are experiencing any cold or flu-like symptoms, whether they have been in contact with a COVID-19 positive person or have been identified as a close or casual contact, or whether they been to locations identified by health authorities as a current hot spot. If any of those questions prompts an affirmative response, embarkation will not be permitted.

 

Mask Use. State health authorities recommend the use of face coverings when physical distancing cannot be achieved and acknowledge that strenuous exercise is a valid reason not to wear a mask. Appropriate masks will be embarked for use by Staff and Youth Crew at each individual’s discretion.
