Please see the direction that has been provided to AFL Queensland by Sport and Recreation Queensland – Department of Tourism, Innovation and Sport, regarding community sport in relation with the current restrictions for the 11 impacted South East Queensland Local Government Areas (LGAs).
As Queensland’s Chief Health Officer, Dr Young detailed this morning, the intent of the restrictions is to limit the number of people coming together, particularly those that would not usually do so, including in organised sport and active recreation. As a result, restrictions have been placed on community sport until 4pm on 22 August 2021.
Activity is unable to occur unless all of the following conditions can be met:
- Maximum of 10 people with no physical contact between participants;
- participants can physically distance;
- venue density requirements are followed;
- participants must wear masks unless they have a valid reason not to do so;
- sharing of equipment is to be limited wherever possible and appropriate cleaning protocols are to be implemented;
- organisations are reminded to ensure they are using the contact tracing app
- no structured competitions are to occur.
If your organisation is unsure that the above conditions can be met, please do not undertake any activity during this two week period.
Information from Queensland Health regarding community sport can be found here: under section Schedule 3 (Leisure and recreation)
AFL Queensland will provide updates as they come to hand and continue to be guided by the advice and direction of the Queensland Government.
