COVID-19 safety update

June 25th, 2021

You would have heard that there are new restrictions in Sydney due to an outbreak of the COVID-19 virus. This news has resulted in some local questions concerning people who have visited Sydney playing football on the North Coast this weekend. Overall, the impact on football in northern NSW is very minimal. None of what follows is sport or football-specific. It applies to everyone and everything. Here’s what you need to know…

Can people who have visited Sydney recently play football this weekend?

As a general comment, yes, they can play football this weekend. However, there are restrictions on people who have visited specific locations in Sydney on particular dates. That list is here: . The list explains what people should do, ranging from “monitor for symptoms” right through to measures such as isolating, testing and more. There’s no ‘blanket ban’ on people who were in the impacted local government areas before the lockdown. Only those at specific locations on particular dates are impacted.

What about face masks?

From NSW Health: “When you are in the Greater Sydney area, if you have been in the Greater Sydney area within 14 days, you must wear a face mask where required by public health orders. The Greater Sydney area includes the Blue Mountains, Central Coast, Wollongong, and Shellharbour Local Government Areas”. A person may remove their mask when doing “strenuous exercise”. Source:
