Queensland Rugby League has received further clarification from Queensland Health indicating outdoor-based organisations are no longer required to collect contact tracing information.
It was also advised that indoor occupant density requirements no longer apply to all change rooms, outdoor can bars and canteens, and that these facilities also do not require contact tracing information to be collected.
However, any indoor spaces used as part of delivering outdoor activities, such as clubhouses etc are still required to follow occupant density requirements (one person per two square metres) relevant to that space, as well as keeping contact information via the Queensland Government’s Check In Qld app and adhering to the current public health controls.
This means the EVA Check-in process is no longer required and will cease through the QRL’s existing contract with EVA.
However, if clubs still wish to collect this information to assist with game day operations, then contact with EVA will need to be made directly to create a separate arrangement.
It has also been confirmed that industry approved plans are no longer applicable; however, it is encouraged that clubs and venues continue to promote COVID Safe messaging with supporting resources available on the QRL’s Clubhouse.
