The Queensland Government has recently provided an update on the ongoing COVID-19 restrictions and requirements for the sport and recreation industry.  A copy of the advice is available HERE .

In summary, Equestrian Queensland provides the following advice to assist members and affiliates in regards to the current COVID-19 restrictions that apply to the sport and recreation industry:

  • Both vaccinated and unvaccinated people can still participate in many sport, active recreation, and fitness activities including indoor and outdoor events - state-wide.

  • It is a condition of entry for sport and recreation events and activities that attendees do not have any COVID like symptoms. The message continues to be if you are sick stay home.

  • If a person has COVID-19, they are required to isolate for 7 days from the date of test and until they are clear of any COVID-19 symptoms.

  • It is condition of entry that attendees at sport and recreation events and activities are not a close contact of a confirmed case within the past 7 days. 

  • A person is considered a close contact if they are a household member or a household-like contact of a diagnosed person.  A person who is a close contact must get tested for COVID-19 and isolate for 7 days. 

  • Face masks are required when indoors at sport and recreation events and activities unless an exemption applies (i.e. medical reason, under the age of 12 etc).

  • A person is not required to wear a face mask outdoors unless they cannot maintain 1.5m physical distance from other people.

  • All attendees at sport and recreation events are required to check in at the venue upon arrival using the QLD Government – Check In App.
