A Message from the Chief Executive

A Message from the Chief Executive

5 August 2020

As advised on Monday 3 August 2020, the Premier announced new COVID-19 restrictions in South Australia that will be enforced as of 12:01am today.

Following a review of the new Emergency Management Directions (Public Activities No 6)(COVID-19) Direction 2020 I can confirm the following:

  • Alcoholic beverages may be consumed by spectators at sporting events at local clubs if the spectator remains seated.
  • Food and beverages (including alcohol) must be consumed by patrons while seated at tables that are physically separate from any bar or are where orders are taken.
  • Food and beverages at a recreational facility (e.g. mini-golf, pool hall, tenpin bowling, high ropes course, etc.) must be consumed at an area separate from a bar/where orders are taken and within the group that are attending the facility.

Please ensure that your members are aware of these new restrictions as they do impact sport and recreation clubs and associations. A copy of the most updated Frequently Asked Questions are also provided for you.

This is not the time to be complacent. Therefore, we must continue to:

  • Stay home if you are unwell.
  • Keep 1.5 metre distance from others wherever and whenever possible.
  • Adhere to the density requirement of 1 person per 2 square meters.
  • Wash or sanitize hands and common surfaces regularly.

The Office for Recreation, Sport and Racing will continue to update you on any new COVID-19 developments as they arise.
