South Australia continues to operate in a COVID normal manner, with very few restrictions on activities currently in place.
Key principles of density (3 persons per 4sqm), contact tracing (via the Government’s QR Code) and caps on attendance numbers (up to 1,000 under a COVID Safe Plan) continue to apply, as well as maintaining high standards of hygiene and cleaning.
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 resources and templates to support your COVIDSafe return to footy for season 2021.
Feel free to view, download and print any of these resources to support your club.
In this section you can find links to training to educate your club volunteers, as well as short info videos that clearly outline and further explain information in the SANFL's Return to Play protocols document.
We continue to encourage all coaches, match day managers and other interested parties to undertake the State Government's COVID Marshal Training or the Infection Control Training provided by the Federal Health Department.
As we move through our Return to Play Roadmap, previous stage protocols become redundant.
Make sure you access reliable and accurate information from trusted sources.
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.
