LATEST IMPORTANT AMENDED COVID ANNOUNCEMENT-11 OCTOBER 2021 To ALL PENNANT HILLS DCC SHIRES TEAMS AND NEW MEMBERS

 

PLEASE NOTE THESE AMENDMENTS MADE ON MONDAY 11 OCT BY NSW GOVERNMENT AND HENCE PENNANT HILLS DCC

 

Firstly, thank you all for your patience so far.  It has been a difficult start to the season yet again.  There has been uncertainty as to when we would come out of lockdown, and when Community Sport would be allowed to recommence.
Some certainty has now emerged.  We shall be out of lockdown on 11 October, and Community Sport can start again from the Monday 11 October 2021 after we reach 80% full vaccination.  The likely date for this is Monday 25 October 2021.  However, this will be only for fully vaccinated players.  Non-Vaccinated players will have to wait until 1 Dec. CNSW also needs to confirm this as the starting date.

The links below provide the latest information provided by NSW Health.

70% full vaccination target reopening starts for fully vaccinated people – to be Monday 11 October.

80% full vaccination target further easing of restrictions for fully vaccinated people – expected to be Monday 25 October.

Wednesday 1 December opening up NSW for everyone whether vaccinated or not.

Fixtures
We have yet to receive the Shires/Tim Creer and Chappelow Fixture Lists stating a commencement date whether Saturday 30 Oct or probably later. Once this is received for The Sydney Cricket Association( SCA) ,it will be posted on our Website and Facebook page so please keep watching these outlets. In any event we must follow the NSW Health Orders and CNSW guidance.

Match Management for training and play
  1. A Covid Safety Plan will be required for each match and net session. We have been given no Guidelines.  At this stage you should assume this to be the same as last season.  This will include QR player registration, sanity, non-use of dressing rooms, social distancing or if not possible, the wearing of masks and no provision of teas (bring you own refreshments) .
  2. In addition, this season we have the added situation that only fully doubled vaccinated players can play or train up to 1 Dec 21.  Again, there are no guidelines available on how to implement this, but we will compile a register of our player's vaccination certificate numbers to ensure compliance and privacy. We will select only fully vaccinated players up to 1 Dec 21 so the Club can make such a true statement to SCA.  It will be a health requirement anyway but from 11 Oct all fully vaccinated people must carry with them proof of vaccination in either soft or hard copy when travelling.  The current indications are that retailers and indoor sports facilities will want to see the certificate. 
Any breach of the requirements could put the whole competition and members of our Club in jeopardy.

If we receive any further guidance on the points above, we shall pass it on to you.

Pre-Season Practice
This will open from Monday 11 Oct 2021 and CNSW have provided guidelines on this. Only include fully vaccinated players can attend and be subject to our Covid Safety Plan (see above) and a limit of 20 (NOT 30) including players; officials and supporters in any one session.
