2022-10-05: New COVID Protective Measures Bulletin - October 2022
The new bulletin of the Aeroclub Mesogeion on protective measures for COVID-19 was issued, the main change has to do with the use of the protective mask which is now non-mandatory (its use is recommended in overcrowding conditions).
At Mesogeion Aeroclub, the Administration Board as well as the personnel since the beginning of the pandemic have fully implemented the provisions and instructions of the Authorities for the protection of pilots, members, athletes and visitors in all activities (flights/sim sessions etc.). The club was constantly in contact with the Authorities, regularly updated its health protocol, and timely informed those involved about the few observed cases of COVID. The result was that there was never (as far as we know) any spread of the virus from club's activity.
We would like to sincerely thank all our members who have followed the protection measures issued by our club for so long (even if the bulletins were sometimes more strict than those of the Authorities). Note that, although masks are not mandatory anymore, the health protocol is NOT cancelled. So, for example, in par. 2.6.1 we mention that "Each person on board must carry at least one personal facemask or paper towels, and a personal plastic bag (in case of COVID symptoms after departure as described in par. 2.6.2.k)."
