COVID-19 Safety Plans are mandatory

Under Public Health Orders all community sporting competitions and training activities must complete a COVID-19 Safety Plan.

Community sporting competitions and full training activities should also consider the benefits of registering as COVID Safe.

Complete the plan in consultation with staff, then share it with them.

Keep your plan up to date

You may need to update the plan in the future, as restrictions and advice changes.

You will need to have an up to date plan at your premises at all times and be able to show it to an authorised officer if requested.

You can either:

  • use the provided COVID-19 Safety Plan to address the checklist of matters for community sporting competitions and full training activities
  • keep using your existing plan, if you have one, after making sure it includes all the items in the provided COVID-19 Safety Plan.
