COVID Safe Plans
IMPORTANT ADVICE TO CLUBS AND MEMBERS – COVID SAFE PLANS – 17 JULY
Due to the upsurge in community transmission of COVID-19, NSW Health has advised that sporting organisations/clubs will be required to update their COVID safe plans.
Of particular note, is that, sport and recreation organisations will be required to “take all reasonable steps to minimise the number of spectators attending community sporting events”, this includes persons surrounding a bowling green.
What do organisations need to do?
Community sport and recreation organisations will need to update their COVID-19 Safety Plans detailing the actions that will be put in place to address these additional requirements.
We are asking that all club administrators put plans in place to minimise spectators whilst bowls matches are in progress.
The COVID safe plan must have protocols in place regarding any shared equipment and the promotion of advice to limit participants of sharing equipment.
For more details please see Sport NSW Update here.
We strongly urge everyone, please be COVID AWARE and keep social distancing and high levels of personal hygiene and sanitisation. If you have the slightest cold or flu like symptom, please have a test done and isolate at home whilst waiting for results.
It is much safer for all involved to miss a game of bowls and be sure than to risk so many others.
It is critical that ALL clubs have their COVID Safe plans in place and have safeguards actioned with training of staff and volunteers on all cleaning and health protocols and record keeping as per current Public Health Orders.
