Queensland COVID Regulations in relation to sport and exercise

Important Information for Queensland Athletics Members

 Queensland COVID Regulations in relation to sport and exercise from 6pm 11/1/21 to 21/1/21

 The Premier and Chief Health Officer have announced that the lockdown for Greater Brisbane will end at 6pm on 11/1/21.

 For the next 10 days we can return to having organised competition and training under a COVID Safe Plan, with some additional requirements over and above what was in place before the lockdown.

 The key additional requirements that relate to athletics activity are:

 You must carry a mask with you at all times when outside of your home.

  • You must wear a mask in indoor spaces other than your home (examples: clubhouses, toilets, officials’ room)

  • You do not need to wear a mask while exercising or competing on the field of play.

  • In outdoor spaces you should socially distance at all times and if that is not possible wear a mask

  • Children under 12 are not required to wear a mask.

 Events with an approved COVID Safe Check list are now capped at 1000 total.

 For those looking to attend the Denise Boyd Shield at QSAC on 16/1/21 you will be sent a more detailed email over coming days.

 If you are attending other events, I encourage you to check with the organiser for any specific requirements that might relate to that event or venue.

 For Club training have your masks ready, socially distance, wear your masks when indoors or where strictly socially distancing is not possible.

 Those outside of the Greater Brisbane area remain on the same level of regulations as before the lockdown.
