We have an entry policy that does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, or medical status. We believe that to do otherwise would be an invasion of your privacy and a violation of your basic human rights. We respect your right to make informed decisions affecting the health and well-being of you and your family and we afford the same respect to our valued employees. We have both essential and non-essential services onsite along with residential accommodation.
Your safety is important to us and we have prepared more detailed documentation to supplement the entry policy statement as follows:
“We encourage customers to contact us (or mention in the special requirements section of your booking) if they have any specific requests or concerns which we will aim to accommodate.” (see Book Now page)
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Queensland government has implemented vaccination policies that are intended to strongly encourage people to undergo a medical procedure that has no long-term safety data. In line with our strong emphasis on safety, respect for all people and in accordance with legal advice obtained, Trevena Glen cannot confirm the vaccination status of employees nor other individuals/groups that are onsite during the time of your visit for the following reasons:
- Vaccinations have had a negligible impact on reducing transmission and spread of the recent COVID variants. The primary benefit of vaccination is for the individual vaccinated given that the current health advice is that they ‘assist’ in limiting severity of the disease.
- We have adopted an industry-standard and site specific COVIDsafe plan that has proven effective since mid-2020 for all variants of COVID-19 to date. (http://doc.grookea.net.au/docview.php?covidsafe)
- Your visit is conducted in an outdoor setting where physical distancing is possible and the likelihood of COVID transmission is very low. In comparison to attendance here at Trevena Glen, you will likely be in many other higher risk settings on a daily basis such as shopping centres, supermarkets, public transport etc.
- Non-voluntary disclosures of vaccination status are in breach of the Privacy Act 1988(Cth). In addition, a business cannot apply any form of coercion to staff for obtaining disclosures or to undergo medical procedures that only have provisional approval (from the TGA) as it would be in breach of the follow: Fair work Act 2009 (Cth), WHS Act 2011 (Cth), Human Rights Act 2019 (QLD), Disability Discrimination Act 1992 (Cth), Anti-Discrimination Act 1991 (QLD), International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (Articles 7,26).
