Park Street Events March 24-28 – COVID 19 Update

Sport Australia communication to sporting associations: Exercise and participation in sport remains an important part of physical and mental health for everyone. For those who are well, they should continue to be active by engaging in exercise and playing sport.  However, for community sporting events under 500 people, there are a number of additional risk mitigation strategies that clubs and event organizers should consider to help limit the spread of COVID-19.  

Park Street orienteering continues to follow guidance from Orienteering Australia, and will take additional hygiene and social distancing measures at our events as below.  We continue to adapt our procedures in accordance with government recommendations.

Event organisers also have updated procedures to follow; these are available from your club’s Park Street rep, or on request from [email protected]
