Return to Play Guide

Read the Return to Play Guide for Queensland sport, recreation and fitness industries (PDF, 2.8 MB) to see what your organisation should do to return to play. The guide will be continually updated to reflect current Queensland COVID-19 restrictions. Please note, the Return to Play Guide is currently being updated and may not reflect all of Queensland’s updated Stage 2 restrictions.

A number of Industry Plans for sport, recreation and fitness are being developed to cover all operations across the industry in Queensland. These plans will seek approval for flexibility regarding the restrictions on behalf of all clubs and organisations within the sector including, where appropriate, allowing more participants and spectators than specified in the roadmap.

The approved Industry Plans will provide a checklist and guidance material including information on health and hygiene, facility management and physical distancing measures.

The COVID Safe Industry Plans for sport, recreation and fitness are currently being considered.
