What a relief for face-to-face classes to resume, albeit with some rules around what is Covid normal behavior for each of our venues. The pleasure of resuming our normal classes is heartfelt. More than that the first vaccines have been administered across Australia and there are plans for a steady roll-out to willing participants from here onwards. We hope this will enable us to resume our social program in the second half of 2021 after vaccination has been extended to our age group.
