Sporting clubs and organisations

You need to make sure you are protecting participants, spectators and visitors, and look to minimise the risk of spreading infection.

To see what your organisation should do to return to play:

A number of COVID Safe Industry Plans for sport are being developed to cover all operations across the industry in Queensland.

These plans will seek approval for flexibility regarding the restrictions on behalf of all clubs and organisations within the sector including, where appropriate, allowing more participants and spectators than specified in the roadmap.

The approved Industry Plans will provide a checklist and guidance material including information on health and hygiene, facility management and physical distancing measures.

The COVID Safe Industry Plans for sport are currently being considered.
