Gymnastics NT's response to COVIDSafe Australia

Following today’s National Cabinet meeting, the Prime Minister announced COVIDSafe Australia, a three-step roadmap for the easing of restrictions around the country.

While National Cabinet may make recommendations to accommodate the wider Australian community, it is important to note that restrictions will still differ between states and territories pending the current community impact of COVID-19. 

While we do not know when these steps will come into place, sport within NT must still follow and comply to the current guidelines set by the Northern Territory.   

In the light of COVID-19, and as the current conversation now starts to shift to when and how community sport can begin again, Gymnastics in the NT are guided by a framework created by NT Sport and Active Recreation. Gymnastics NT are using this framework to support our clubs as they look to resume operations on May 15. 

Gymnastics NT are working collaboratively with Gymnastics Australia and all states and territories to ensure that you will receive consistent advice on the cleaning, distancing and general hygiene practises moving forward. We will continue to seek the best advice for our clubs and we will keep you informed of all decisions. 

The potential easing of some restrictions is an exciting prospect for our sport. However, we must ensure that we continue to plan for limited athlete contact and follow the guidelines outlined by NT Sport and Recreation.
