02 Jun 2020

Eager to get back out there?!

 

It’s been a few months since everyone’s lives got flipped around with the lockdown laws put into place, making major adjustments to your day-to-day. With some extra time on your hands, making all those last minute upgrades and improvements to your rig over the last few months, now is the time to test them off the beaten track to have all that hard work paid off!

With restrictions slowly easing up, there’s no doubt that we’re all yearning to get back into the swing of things and go out exploring but it’s important to note that each state has their own regulations, especially now that we’re allowed to float between some of the borders such as NSW and ACT. Ensure you stay updated with the latest news on what is allowed, while keeping in mind that everything is subject to change during these unpredictable periods.

We’re definitely going through a strange time but remember to keep practicing social distancing as well as using common sense. It’s crucial to maintain personal hygiene habits which include washing hands thoroughly for at least 20 seconds, carrying around hand sanitiser, bringing extra garbage bags and wipes. Of course, look after yourself and others by staying home if you feel mild symptoms.
