Statement from the Office of Sport and PCANSW on Resumption of Sport in NSW
Posted: Wed, 6th May 2020
An updated from the Office of Sport and Pony Club regarding the resumption of Sport in NSW as at 6th May 2020.
From the Office of Sport
The NSW Government notes that National Cabinet endorsed the Framework for Rebooting Sport in a COVID-19 Environment developed by the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS) on Friday 1 May 2020.
The NSW Public Health order signed on the 30th of March 2020, remains in force and prohibits exercise in groups of greater than two.
The NSW Government is considering these issues alongside other restrictions and will update the community should any changes to the Public Health Orders be made.
Pony Club NSW
PCA NSW is working on developing risk assessments for all pony club activities which we will align with the framework being developed by the Office of Sport, Minister of Sport, and NSW Public Health authorities which will be distributed to members once we are advised of any changes to the Public Health Orders.
PCA NSW encourages all members to download the COVID-19 tracking app and to speak to their local Members encouraging them all to support the submission by the Office of Sport on behalf of all sports in NSW to the Federal Treasurer for crisis funding.
The Minister for Sport, Office of Sport and PCA NSW thank all members for their positive attitude to the challenges presented to our members and volunteers and encourage you all to continue to keep connected and follow social distancing and Public Health Orders.
