Celtic Latest - 20th August 2021

Hi to all

Not the news we wanted. Let's all do our part and get through it again, we know we can :-)

MCRU - Covid

We will all get the Government update this afternoon at 3pm and Sport NZ and NZ Rugby will then revisit requirements beyond this weekend.

Firstly everyone should be aware that Under Level 3 or 4 no organised sport, training or meetings can take place. Level 2 has significant restrictions and requirements – contact tracing, group size and social distancing. A return to play plan sign-off with each group is also required.

So we await the announcement at 3pm before NZR considers the next steps and it may be a day or 2 before we have a clear picture of what is possible next week and beyond and how it might be delivered.

We have already had advice that the requirements around sport and recreation at each level may change. (Given the increased transmissibility of the delta variant). This may mean some new measures in place at particular levels. So we will communicate the requirements as soon as they are confirmed to us – remembering last year there was some ongoing tweaking of these along the way.

So we will keep you updated as things evolve. But you can keep up to date with the latest official COVID information

If you haven’t read the Sport New Zealand and NZR Alert Level Guidance for some time, I  encourage you to take another look. There is more definition and clarity in a lot of areas since the early versions.
