COVID-19 is still circulating in our community - so it's important we all do our part to keep everyone safe.
If you're unwell, stay home. If you develop COVID like symptoms, get tested.
Normal brigade activities, including meetings and training, can resume.
If you are unwell, do not attend RFS activities or facilities.
Confirmed COVID-19 cases
Follow the advice from NSW Health if you test positive to COVID-19.
If you do test positive, do not attend RFS activities or facilities.
Rapid Antigen Testing kits are available through Districts, with additional supplies being pre-positioned at Area Commands offices. The RFS has ample supplies of these kits.
Masks and other COVID safe practices
While masks are no longer mandatory, you should wear one if you're recommended to, or if you have any form of symptoms.
Vaccination status and recording
All NSW RFS staff and volunteers are required to record their COVID-19 vaccination status with the Service. You can do this here.
Normal working arrangements now apply.
