As you all know we like to keep the Community, Clubs and Supporters as up to date as possible so please find below the latest information from AFL Tas.
Exciting news as we are now getting really close to a return for footy!
Following on from the Premier’s announcement yesterday, we are planning to move to STAGE C on Friday from NOON.
There have been a few minor adjustments from what we took you all through last week, which include:
Crowds of 500 permitted outdoors (including players and staff), 250 indoors (space dependant need 1 person per 2sqm) and if the indoor and outdoor groups don’t mix and clubs have enough space they can host 500 outdoors and 250 indoors.
1 person per 2sqm rather than 1 person per 4sqm was another significant change announced and that showers and change rooms permitted for use for seniors but with strict hygiene and social distancing measures (encouraged to avoid use where they are not required).
All protocols can be found here: https://www.afltas.com.au/covid-19-return-to-train/ - it Is split into three documents – the Stage C protocols, a checklist for clubs to fill in for councils and a spectator protocols document.
Off the back of last night’s webinar we are working on adding greater detail and examples on spectator management to the spectator document as it was clear this was the biggest area of confusion.
