With NSW Suburban Rugby competitions set to kick off in just over a month, Rugby Australia has produced a live document containing the latest information and advice from Australian Government and Health authorities. As part of this advice players, coaches, and volunteers are being asked to refrain from attending training sessions or club environments in the event they are unwell or experiencing flu-like symptoms, regardless of their recent travel activity.
There is not currently any advice that recommends those in Australia refrain from attending or participating in sporting matches, however all members of the Rugby community are being advised to stay up to date with the latest advice from the Department of Health (see below).
NSW Suburban Rugby is following the advice from Rugby Australia, NSW Government Department of Health and National Government Agencies.
NSW Suburban Rugby will communicate with all clubs should there be any changes or updates.
Quotes from Rugby Australia Chief Medical Officer, Warren McDonald:
“There is a lot of misinformation in the public about the virus and the most important advice for the Rugby community is to follow the advice of the Health authorities and focus on good hygiene practices as the best preventative measure.
“We are being guided by the advice from the authorities and have taken some additional steps with regards to the monitoring of players and staff within our organisations and will continue to communicate the latest developments and make information available to those within our community.”
