COVID-19 Update
COVID19 Update - 23rd March 2020

COVID-19 Update - current as as 23/03/20

 

Good morning to all our students and friends.

 

If you have not already heard last night you will be waking up to the news that the government has introduced fairly drastic new health and safety measures to try and slow the spread of COVID-19. They have announced the closure of all licenced pubs, clubs, bars, cinemas, theatres, gyms, indoor sports venues & places of worship as at midday today. As a result all Gotta Swing classes and events are now cancelled until further notice.

Please note that most other schools that we are aware of in South East Queensland have also cancelled classes and events. Please check their individual websites and social media pages for more information.

 

Stay safe and practice social distancing as best you can. We’ll see you again on the other side!
