COVID-19: Further Easing of Restrictions for Sport

Following the latest meeting of the National Cabinet on Friday 12 June, the Premier has made some important announcements about the easing of COVID -19 restrictions in South Australia.  The key points that relate to sport and recreation are as follows:

Introduction of Stage 2.5 - from Friday 19 June

  • This will be an interim step before we move to Stage 3 of the roadmap
  • The number of people allowable in a room (or a group outside) within a venue will increase from 20 to 75 providing 1 person per 4 square metres can be accommodated.  This will apply to training or competition groups.
  • The total number of people allowed in a venue will increase from 80 to 300 providing 1 person per 4 square metres can be accommodated.  Again this will apply to all people, indoor and outdoor who are gathered at a club.

Stage 3 will commence earlier than expected on Monday 29 June

  • There will be no room or venue limit.  This will be replaced with only a density requirement of 1 person per 4 square metres

From Monday 20 July

  • Border restrictions will be lifted
  • There will be no requirement on entry to SA to self-isolate for 14 days

While gyms for individual workouts can increase numbers in line with the above roadmap, increasing the cap of 10 participants in dance and fitness classes is still being considered. 

Guidance regarding indoor contact sport is not yet finalised.

As always, organisations/venues must submit their COVID Safe Plan before commencing activity and should ensure that cleaning and hygiene regimes are enforced.
