Following a recent increase in COVID-19 cases in Sydney, the NRL made the decision to implement stricter biosecurity protocols. This ensures the safety of players, their teams, and other sports officials.
Level 4 Biosecurity Protocols will need to be adhered to until further notice. As a result, spectators will not be allowed in the stadiums. In addition to this, these protocols state that unless training, competing, or completing household chores, players should remain at home.
Players and rugby officials are not allowed to have guests or visit friends and family. These restrictions apply to all players and not just those residing in Sydney. This comes after the NRL had implemented Level 3 Biosecurity Protocols last week when news of the latest outbreak broke.
With the virus gaining momentum yet again, it is more important than ever to follow these protocols to ensure that games are able to continue while ensuring the safety of all involved. These protocols are similar to those implemented at the end of May last year when competitions were able to continue, and given the response received last year, teams are more than able to follow these guidelines.
While the current lockdown is only limited to Sydney and is set to be lifted on 9 July, NRL has stated that all players and officials need to follow the same protocols to ensure the safety of them and their families. Seven games are set to take place during this time and all teams competing will need to do their part in ensuring that it is safe to do so.
