ACT ANNOUNCES STAGE 2.2 OF RECOMMENCEMENT FOR COMMUNITY SPORTS

From midday on 19 June the ACT will enter Stage 2.2 of recommencement for community sporting activity, increasing the allowable number of people in a group to 100 and supporting the reintroduction of full contact in training.

Like the previous stages, this stage continues to focus on social participation, training and activities within a group setting, albeit much larger, and with continuing emphasis on physical distancing away from the field or court, personal and respiratory hygiene.  Sharing of equipment and use of communal facilities is permitted with appropriate cleaning measures in place.

Indoor sport and venues which recommenced under Phase 2 can increase their capacity to 100 people within any enclosed space providing the one person per 4sqm rule can be maintained.  Pools are also provided scope to increase their activities, with 100 people in any pool and up to four swimmers per lane.

Stage 3 is identified to commence from 10 July.  This will support the recommencement of full contact competition activities and the likely easing of a number of other measures that support “normal” competition delivery.
