COVID-19 Plan

RAMS LITTLE ATHLETICS COVID-19 SAFETY INFORMATION 

Rouse Hill Rams Little Centre is committed to creating a COVID-safe environment for everyone.

We have developed this plan, which has been approved by Little Athletics NSW, and expect that all volunteers, parents, carers and athletes will abide by our guidelines

VACCINATION

All the Rams committee members are vaccinated. All athletes over 16 years must be vaccinated and those under 16 years must have a vaccinated carer in attendance on competition night. Proof of vaccination must be provided at muster night to collect registration patches.

All other athletes can attend from December 15 or when NSW reaches 95 per cent vaccination, as detailed under the NSW Government health order.

 

ATTENDANCE

Anyone attending any training or competition night including volunteers, parents, carers and children must not attend if in the past 14 days if they have:

  • attended any of the reported case locations listed on the NSW Health website (https://www.nsw.gov.au/covid-19/latest-news-and-updates)
  • been unwell or had any flu-like symptoms, or
  • been in contact with a known or suspected case of COVID-19, or
