COVID-19 Update - 19 October 2021

Updated 19th October 2021.


NSW has reached 80% double vaccination status and, consequently, rules for exercise in groups have changed.  While the club does not currently hold any field bookings and no formal training activities may take place, it is now permitted to exercise outdoors in groups of max 50 people providing everyone over 16 is fully vaccinated.  Organised outdoor activities of up to 200 people are permitted provided the activity is Covid safe and organisers have a Covid Safe Plan in place (ref latest NSW Health Update of 18th October).

Further updates on a return to football to come as we receive more information from NSFA and FNSW.
