As COVID-19 case numbers continue to drop across the state, NSW Health are lifting restrictions to slowly and safely enable us to return to normal.

COVID-19 Restrictions Update

From this Saturday (September 26), interregional community sporting competitions can recommence without restricting these activities to regions or zones as long as a COVID-19 Safety Plan is in place. 

Back in August, NSW Health put a regional limit on community sport to help stop the spread of COVID-19. 

What This Means For Community Sport

After Saturday, community sport is still required to follow the 500 person limit (including participants, officials and spectators) and adhere to the one person per four square metre rule in indoor spaces.

It’s important to remember to maintain physical distance with people not in the same household. 

NSW Health also recommends to avoid shared travel arrangements with people you don’t live with such as car-pooling, along with minimising social gatherings before and after.

“It will be great to see riding groups be able to travel again and explore beyond their local area,” commented Kim Lavender, Bicycle NSW Communications Manager.

For more information the NSW Office for Sport has prepared answers to frequently asked questions and updates its own COVID-19 page, and NSW Health regularly updates its website with relevant information and media releases.
