Return to play Guidelines - PLAYERS To minimise the risk of contracting or transmitting COVID-19, players must adhere to the following:
Do not attend netball training or competition if you are unwell and experiencing symptoms such as a cough, sore throat, fever, fatigue or shortness of breath.
Do not attend netball training or competition if in the last 14 days you have been unwell or had close contact with a known or suspected case of COVID-19.
Any participant who is unwell should see a doctor in accordance with local Public Health Authority guidelines.
Participants should gradually return to training and competition to reduce the risk of injury.
Consider vulnerable participants as they may be at increased risk.
Apply a ‘Get in, train/play and get out’ philosophy. Players are:
Encouraged to shower at home with soap before and after all netball activity.
Encouraged to arrive at the venue ready to train/play.
To bring all personal items to participate. For example, a player to bring their own towel and drink bottle; an umpire to bring their own whistle. Do not share with others.
