COVID-19 update: Friday 6 August

The NSW Government has imposed a stay-at-home order for Newcastle, Lake Macquarie, Maitland, Port Stephens, Singleton, Dungog, Muswellbrook and Cessnock. This stay-at-home order applies to all people who live in these areas, or have been there on or after 31 July 2021 until 12:01am on Friday 13 August.

Anyone that has been in one of the above areas on or after 31 July MUST NOT attend local footy this weekend as part of that stay-at-home order.

As confirmed cases get closer to our region, it’s a great reminder that we must all do the right thing at local footy to give ourselves the best chance of finishing our season. This includes:

  • Signing in to the venue via the footy club’s QR code
  • Wearing a face mask at all times unless eating or drinking
  • Complying with social distance rules of 1 person per 4 square metres
  • Staying away from the footy if feeling unwell or displaying any signs of cold or flu like symptoms

We’re within sight of the end to what has been a fantastic season of local footy – let’s do everything we can to make sure we get through to the Senior Grand Final on 4 September without any issues.

Thanks for your support.
