Football Queensland (FQ) would like to advise all clubs that outdoor based sporting organisations are no longer required to collect contact tracing information for outdoor areas and are no longer considered restricted businesses under the Queensland Government’s Business Restrictions Direction (No. 18).
Clubs must continue collecting contact information using the Check in Qld app for indoor spaces associated with outdoor clubs, including clubhouses with hospitality activities and canteens with indoor dining for contact tracing purposes.
In these indoor areas, clubs are also still required to follow occupant density requirements relevant to the space (e.g. one person per 2 square metres), allowing for physical distancing to the extent possible and adhering to public health controls, however indoor occupant density requirements no longer apply to shared change rooms.
All Queensland clubs are reminded of the requirement to transition from EVA Check-In QR codes to the Check in Qld app for the collection of contact tracing information for indoor areas. Please note FQ will discontinue the use of the EVA Check-In QR code solution on Monday, 31 May.
Clubs are also reminded to continue implementing and enforcing the COVID Safe measures that have become the ‘new normal’.
These measures include the promotion of social distancing and hand hygiene measures and the regular cleaning of frequently touched surfaces and equipment. Any participants who are unwell should also not attend any training sessions, matches or other football activity.
