While a return to play is allowed, there remains a limit of no more than 500 persons (participants, officials, and spectators) at an outdoor sporting venue at any one time. Social distancing measures are always also to be maintained. It is also important to note that a COVID-19 Safety Plan for competition and training is mandatory under the Public Health Order and must be kept at the venue/clubhouse with the Committee aware of its location for access and inspection by an authorised officer if required. NSW Health is conducting random checks of sporting bodies. The NSWTA staff are available to assist all our affiliates with their Safety Plans, and we also provide this link to the Safety Plan developed in conjunction with TFA.

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
