The ACT Government has announced the first phase of gradual easing of restrictions on sport and recreation.
At this stage the following are allowed:
informal outdoor, non-contact sport to restart and commercial pools allowed to reopen from midnight Friday 15 May.
non-contact sporting activity can recommence in outdoor spaces with a maximum of 10 people with physical contact to be avoided and physical distancing as an integral part of their activity.
At this stage the following are NOT allowed:
Indoor sporting venues and fitness gyms will remain closed at this stage – reopening will be, in line with health advice.
The sharing of fitness equipment and surfaces coupled with an indoor crowded and sweaty environment pose a serious risk for the potential spread of the COVID-19 virus.
So activity is limited to outdoors until at least the next phase of restrictions. The government says this is to adhere to social distancing of one person per 4 metres-squared and there is no set timeline to restart indoor activities.
Remember that in any activity you do, you must maintain physical distancing of 1.5 metres apart or 4 square metres per person and continue to practice personal hygiene. These measures continue to be most effective to stop the spread of COVID-19.
