From Monday 30th March 2021, We are pleased to provide a further update to you on community sport and the Public Health Orders currently in place in NSW.

All community sport and recreation activities that take place indoors now fall under the category of ‘recreation facility (indoor)’.

This includes, but is not limited to, all sport and recreation activities held indoors; gyms; indoor pools, spas and saunas; dance; and health and wellness studios.

An occupier of a recreation facility (indoor), must ensure the number of persons does not exceed the greater of;
a) 1 person per 2 square metres of space; / 2 sq m or
b) 25 persons. < / = 25

A non-controlled outdoor gathering (up to 5,000 people)

All outdoor gatherings of more than 200 people must be a COVID-19 safe outdoor gathering. To be deemed a COVID-19 safe outdoor gathering, the organiser must;

• Have and comply with the relevant COVID-19 safety plan;
• Limit the number of persons to the lesser of;
a) 1 person per 2 square metres of space;
b) 5,000 persons.

For all COVID-19 safe outdoor gatherings, there is a new requirement for all record-keeping to be managed electronically. Community sport organisations can support this by registering as a COVID Safe organisation here.

The NSW Touch Association is in full support of the Australian Government’s COVIDSafe app, as part of the plan to have Australia in readiness for a return to community sport. 

The app has been launched by the Government as part of its plan to slow the spread of COVID-19, and it will help health officials to quickly alert people who may be at risk of having contact with the virus. Downloading the app is something you can do to protect you, your family, and friends and save the lives of other Australians. 

The health and wellbeing of all our participants are of paramount importance to us.

The COVIDSafe app is available to download for your smartphone via the  Apple app store or Google Play
