Australian Oztag COVID-19 Statement

Australian Oztag

Response to COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

Domestic competitions

This is an update in regards to COVID-19, or better known as the Coronavirus for all Associations.

It is important we take the necessary precautions as a sporting body and follow Government advice/directives during the pandemic. There are changes every day as the Government constantly updates its restrictions.

AO is continually meeting to discuss the situation and will provide timely updates or each day if necessary.

As you are aware the NSW Senior State Championships & Australian Oztag Trans-Tasman Tour have both been postponed. This comes after NZ & Australian Governments both implemented travel restrictions and mandatory self-isolation procedures when entering the countries as well as a ban on non-essential mass gatherings of more than 500 people.

Most Associations have completed their Summer season with a few still playing finals this week. Our advice is to finish these competitions implementing the good practice hygiene tips below and ensuring you abide by the Non-essential gathering policy of 500 persons. (should not be issue with players attending, playing & leaving straight away.)
