The health and safety of our Queensland Oztag community- Our Participants, Referees, Venue Managers and Supporters is paramount.

We are closely monitoring the situation with respect to COVID-19 and it is important that any information you receive with respect to Covid-19 or any other infectious illness comes from a reputable source. We are regularly consulting with the Australian Government, the World Health Organisation on the best advice for our Queensland Oztag community.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) have now declared Corona-virus (COVID-19) as a pandemic. The advice and updates are changing quickly, so please find below some links to key advice:

Queensland Oztag Guidelines followed as of 17/3/20 recommendations

– Based on the current advice from the Government in relation to group gatherings, Oztag matches with limited crowds (500 or less) can proceed until further notice – our recommendation is that match attendance is limited to players, families, and key match officials

– Individuals can elect not to participate in any activity at their discretion

– We strongly encourage that strict hygiene protocols are followed as outlined below

– If anyone associated with your Club/Centre is feeling unwell, they should refrain from playing and club activities immediately, seek medical advice and where appropriate, advise the Club of their absence
