Football back to normal following relaxation of COVID-19 safety requirements (15/12/2021)

The NSW Government has released updated information on COVID-19 safety related to the conduct of sport and business. In short, for us (as in football), we’re back to normal pre-March 2020, although the government does recommend that social distancing and hygiene practices remain in place.
