NSW Health have updated the COVID-19 Safety Plan templates

We hope that these guidelines help Organising Committees determine the level of risk for your activity and whether or not the activity/event may go ahead based on the risk mitigation processed in place and the number of confirmed cases of Covid-19 in your area.

Please note that one of the NSW Health actionable items it for sporting organisations to "Take all reasonable steps to minimise the number of spectators attending community sport events"

Clubs must contact their venue owners (Council, Trusts etc.) to confirm that the grounds are available for use and have completed their own risk assessment document for their venue. Clubs need to sumbit a copt of their resumption of sport risk assessment to the State Office.

Members must comply with the PCA NSW, NSW Health Guidelines and NSW Public Health Orders so that they do not compromise their position in the event of an insurance claim.

We do not want our sport/clubs to be the next COVID-19 cluster so if someone is not well they should stay at home or be sent home.

With the everchanging nature of the situation please keep up to date with the latest Government advice and Public Health orders. 

Allow 1 person per 2 square metres for outdoor community sport activities only

The 2 square metre rule for organised outdoor events with a maximum number of people allowed attending an event lifted to 3,000. See here for tips on how to minimise risk at sporting events.

Physical distancing means reducing the close physical contact we have with one another and staying 1.5 metres away from people we don't live with - read more here
