Although the BOM weather report for today looks quite appalling, Greg the 'Optimist Weather Man' believes there will be little rain happening during the event,  That's not to say we won't need a rain jacket though.

So hence, at this stage this morning's Sunrise will go ahead as planned, especially for the adventure seekers.

A final call on whether to continue with the event will be made at 7.25am.

Important Message From: Australian Conservation Foundation:

Oil Rigs On The Great Barrier Reef? A Dam On The Franklin River?

Without federal oversight, these proposals would have gone ahead.
But while everyone’s distracted by the pandemic, the Morrison Government is trying to rush through disastrous changes to our environment laws.
Last week they introduced amendments into Parliament to hand over approval powers to states and territories. And they want to do it fast, without transparency or scrutiny – before the independent review of our nature law is even complete.

We won’t stand for this. It’s time for national laws that actually protect nature – with an independent regulator to enforce them.
We’ve united with five of Australia’s biggest environment groups to launch a huge advertising campaign the Morrison Government can’t ignore. Our message will be across TV screens, billboards and digital: protect nature before it’s gone.

Watch our hard-hitting ad now before it hits TV screens, billboards and digital ads, then amplify the message by sharing on Facebook.
Not on Facebook?
Watch it on our website, then share by email or other social media.

COVID-19 Update:

Did you know that around the world 11,000 people are reported having COVID-19 each hour.
There are currently over 5,000 people dying from CORONA-19 every 24 hours.
Since the virus first developed, there has been around 650,000 reported deaths and over 16,000,000 people who have been reported contracting the virus.

COVID-19 is the most severe global health emergency that has ever been declared under the International Health Regulations. And, the pandemic continues to accelerate. In the past 6 weeks, the total number of cases has roughly doubled internationally.

A study in the US states that the coronavirus is approximately 13 times more infectious than seasonal influenza, and that even by low estimates, 20% of the US population will become infected by year's end if trends in social distancing continue.

Stay Safe, Stay Healthy

With COVID-19 on the rise again, it’s more important than ever that you stay safe when you go out.

The rules around physical distancing, gatherings and regular hand washing still apply and more so now than in previous weeks; whether you’re shopping, visiting friends or participating in club events. And if you’re sick – please stay at home and get tested.

When out shopping, look for businesses that display the COVID Safe tick. That shows they’ve registered a COVID-19 Safety Plan and are committed to keeping their customers and staff safe.

How to stay COVID Safe

During this pandemic your mental health and wellbeing are most important. Participate in club events on a regular basis by staying connected, exercise, and don’t be afraid to ask for help if needed. If you’re feeling worried there’s assistance and professional services such as ‘Beyond Blue’ (T: 1800 512 348) are available 24/7.

COVID-19 Restrictions:

It would seem that New South Wales may be going back to tightening COVID-19 guidelines and restrictions as a result of the coronavirus spreading across the Victorian border along with the many people who have become complacent with the physical/social distancing rules.

Now is not the time for complacency... COVID-19 numbers are once again on the rise and we need to show restraint and observe the COVIDSafe GUIDELINES. As a result of this seond wave of the virus, our leaders will be discussing whether to make it a mandatory requirement for all members to run the COVIDSafe App while participating in club events. We will keep you informed of any changes to our current rules.

Downloading the app is something you can do to protect you, your family and friends and save the lives of other Australians. The more Australians connect to the COVIDSafe app, the quicker we can find the virus. Click here for the latest daily COVID-19 stats.

REMINDER: COVID-19 Physical Distancing.

It is vital we learn the lessons from the recent COVID spikes, or we risk seeing many more across Australia, putting in jeopardy much of what we all have worked so hard to achieve in our fight against COVID-19.

An important message I would like to reinforce is, despite our success in combatting COVID-19, we are not at a stage where we can go back to living our lives the way we did before Australia had the pandemic. The virus is still with us, and will be for quite some time — and the international situation continues to get worse, not better.

The spike in Victoria shows just how easy it is for outbreaks to occur if we don’t continue to practise physical distancing and good hygiene, and stay at home when sick. It’s also a reminder of the importance of downloading the COVIDSafe app so health authorities can quickly find close contacts of people confirmed to have contracted COVID-19.

Please practice good hygiene and safe physical distancing when attending club events and while in the public domain.

NB. It''s not time to let your guard down or to get complacent about the Coronavirus. In the last 7 days Australia has recorded 654 new cases while worldwide there has been 11.3 million confirmed cases with over a half million deaths.

We remind you to be all COVID safe... And, do the three!

1. Washing your hands as often as possible
2. Keeping your distance where you can; and
3. Downloading the COVIDSafe app.

And importantly, if you’re feeling sick, you need to stay at home and get tested. Let's all stay COVIDSafe and do the 3.
