This COVIDSafe Plan details the steps implemented to prevent the introduction of coronavirus (COVID-19) to clients of Gill Cook Photography
1. Ensure physical distancing
Indoor and Outdoor Photography will follow government guidelines as to the number of people permitted to gather in these situations.
2. Wear a face covering
The photographer will wear a face mask when required according to government guidelines and rules.
When used, cloth masks must be washed daily and single-use disposable masks discarded appropriately. If the mask becomes visibly dirty or wet while being used it must be changed immediately.
3. Practice good hygiene
Proper hand hygiene will be maintained at all times. This includes adequate hand washing at home before the Photoshoot and regular hand sanitization with an alcohol-based hand sanitizer during and after the photo shoot when necessary.
Photography Equipment used by the photographer will be sanitized before and after each photography session.
4. Keep records and act quickly if workers or clients become unwell
The photographer will collect contact details of each person at the photo shoot as well as record the date and time of each session.
In the event of either the photographer or client(s) becoming unwell before the session, the photo session will be rescheduled.
In the event of the photographer coming into contact with a person with COVID19, they will inform WorkSafe Victoria (13 23 60). The photographer will stop photoshoots and resume upon receiving a negative COVID19 test result or at the direction of the relevant authorities.
In the event that client(s) come into direct contact with a positive COVID19 case before the photography session, they will inform the photographer to reschedule until receiving a negative COVID19 test result.
Should either the photographer or client(s) feel unwell (or receive a positive COVID19 test result) up to 14 days post the photography session, each party will be informed in order to look out for the development of symptoms.
For School Photography, the attendance register taken by the school will be available for record keeping. The time spent at the school will be recorded by the photographer.
5. Avoid interactions in enclosed spaces
Where possible, outdoor photography will be encouraged.
6. Create workforce bubbles
