As a result of the rising case numbers on COVID-19 in NSW, the Chief Health Officer, Dr Kerry Chant, has advised that NSW Health has updated the COVID-19 Safety Plan templates.
Dr Chant advised key changes that will need to be implemented by community sports organisations as a matter of priority are;
• Ensure processes are in place to exclude participants (including spectators and officials) if they have visited Victoria in the 14 days prior.
• Ensure processes are in place to exclude participants (including spectators and officials) if they have attended any of the reported case locations listed on the NSW Health website https://www.nsw.gov.au/covid-19/latest-news-and-updates
• Take all reasonable steps to minimise the number of spectators attending community sport events.
• If sufficient numbers to field teams cannot be achieved, prioritise delaying the event rather than substituting with people from other teams or from the community.
Please remain vigilant
We all have a part to play in protecting ourselves and those with whom we interact.
Thank you for your support in helping to keep community sport COVID-19 safe.
