From 01 July, 2020 the new Public Health (Covid-19 Restrictions on Gathering and Movement) Order (No 4) 2020 comes into effect in NSW.
The new Public Health Order introduces additional requirements for organisers of sporting activities that involve a gathering of more than 20 participants.
This includes (a) the development and compliance of a COVID-19 Safety Plan; and (b) the requirement to keep a copy of the COVID-19 Safety Plan and make it available for inspection. The requirement that a gathering shall not involve more than 500 participants in NSW – remains in place and unchanged.
The ACT government anticipates recommencing ‘full contact competition’ sport from 10 July 2020 and are likely to increase the current maximum number of 100 participants.
Mr Darren Chick, Welfare Director of KNSW said, “Our Clubs have been working towards the return of full racing since the end of May 2020. The incremental return to racing that KNSW has adopted, means that our Clubs have already done all of the hard work. We followed the law every step of the way – with the safety of our competitors and officials as our priority. Racing this weekend will be a little more exciting of course, because spectators will now be permitted.”
KNSW Competition Director, Mr Nick Becker said “We have introduced the KNSW Covid QR Code System to make compliance with the new reporting obligations even easier for our Clubs. It’s paperless and easy to use – particularly for last minute supporters that turn up on the day.”
KNSW remains committed to conducting its events in full compliance of NSW and ACT Public Health Orders – with racing scheduled for our TEKA, Central Coast Speedway, Tamworth and Wollongong Clubs this weekend.
