Due to the Parafield Cluster, the State Government introduced further COVID restrictions from 12:00am on Tuesday 17 November. This included the cancellation of all community sport fixtures and training.
Community sport was able to resume from 1 December 2020, with the following protocols further relaxed from Monday 14 December:
- Density of 1 person per 2sqm re-introduced in match day areas (changerooms, gyms, coaches box etc)
- Access to ice baths permitted (limited to one user per bath at a time)
- No restrictions on activities (trials, registration days, come & try days can occur)
Clubs are subject to the protocols detailed in the Protocol Document below, their Government issued COVIDSafe Plan and any other relevant directions issued by the State Government.
SANFL has a range of new resources and templates to support transition back into training at your club.
Feel free to view, download and print any of these resources to support your club.
The following resources were updated on 1 December 2020 to support clubs and leagues prepare resumption of training after the COVID pause:
- QR Code Check In Poster
- Venue Entry Assessment
Make sure you access reliable and accurate information from trusted sources.
As we move through our Return to Play Roadmap, previous stage protocols become redundant.
SANFL has developed two new education videos to support clubs transition to competition with spectators.
We have also made slight updates to the Testing, Isolation & Sanction video which reinforces the process for a player/coach/club official in the unlikely event they test positive for COVID-19.
Each video runs for approximately five minutes.
There is also a fact sheet to outline key principle protocols such as "Get In, Play, Get Out", Hygiene and Testing.
We continue to encourage all coaches, match day managers and other interested parties to undertake the Infection Control Training provided by the Federal Health Department.
The South Australian Government is introducing COVID SAfe Check-In, to enhance contact tracing and keep our community COVID safe.
If someone in South Australia tests positive to COVID-19, the COVID SAfe Check-In enables SA Health to quickly contact others who may have been exposed to the virus and stop the spread of COVID-19.
All football clubs across South Australia must have this approved contact tracing system enabled.
When people arrive at the club, they can check in by scanning the QR code using their smart phone through the mySA Gov app.
You can download the mySA GOV app using your smart phone. In the mySA GOV app, select the COVID SAfe Check-In tile when you arrive at a venue or business, and follow the prompts to scan their unique QR code and check in.
