NOTICE RELATING TO THE PANDEMIC COVID-19 New Wave in Sydney
As you may be aware / have heard on the News, the Department of Health, NSW Government are very concerned about the recent spike in the number of new cases of positive nature cropping up in the last couple of days.
It is imperative on the part of the Temple Management, to further strengthen the rules and regulations to be observed by the devotees, whilst being at the Temple Premises.
The following guidelines, which have already been implemented since Jun / Jul are expected to be adhered to, by all the visitors without any compromise.
To register at the “Registration Desks”, at both the Shiva Temple and Vishnu Temple, by writing the names of each and every individual gaining entry in to the premises along with their phone numbers.
The volunteers would check the temperature of each and every individual gaining access to the Temple.
Visitors would be given a token at each of the Temple mentioned above, which shall be returned back at respective counters at the time of exiting the Temple. This measure is to enable the Temple to adhere to the maximum permissible number of 100 at a place of worship.
Visitors / Devotees are required to stand in marked spots which are spaced out with the 4 sq.mt., rule (1.5mtrs on all sides from the next person) and offer their prayers and NOT to Congregate in front of the shrine.
The above measure would apply to devotees / visitors, waiting in the queue to gain entry as well, unless otherwise from the same house-hold.
Devotees are also encouraged to complete their prayers in a timely manner and exit the facility to provide opportunity for those, who are waiting in the queue to gain entry.
Wearing of Face Mask, whilst being inside the Temple has been made mandatory based on the strong recommendations from NSW Health Dept, since August 2020. Devotees are advised to bring their own masks or can choose to buy one from the counter.
Devotees / visitors are implored NOT to bring any “Prasadams” whether home-made or otherwise, as distribution of the same will not be entertained.
We trust that each one of you would understand and appreciate the conditions under which we are living at the moment and extend your co-operation, without inviting any impediment / disrepute to the organisation.
In anticipation of your understanding and adherence to the guidelines, the Management wishes to extend a big “Thank You” to one and all.
