COVID-19 and Return to Rugby under Alert Level 2
Rugby is possible in Alert Level 2 subject to suitable player, volunteer, and environment preparations (such as changing rooms and clubrooms). Community Rugby (including Secondary School rugby) can resume in PUs that move to Alert Level 2 by mid-September providing players have had:
a minimum of two contact sessions, with adequate recovery of 48 hours between each, and
A minimum of seven days from the date of moving to Alert Level 2 before commencing competitive play.
These are considered to be the minimum requirements to ensure player welfare and mitigate risks of injury following a prolonged lay off.
We look forward to hopefully moving down an alert level sometime soon and getting back out on the park!
