COVID-19 UPDATE

Women’s Hockey at Maitland is on this weekend. We will continue to follow our Covid-19 Safety Plan. Thank you to all players/families for your support and for following the guidelines by remembering social distancing, regular hand washing/hand sanitising and signing in and out on the attendance register.

However if you have been to any of the below venues, been in contact with a confirmed case, are waiting on test results or are showing any symptoms we ask that you DO NOT ATTEND the hockey centre until you have received negative results or have been otherwise cleared.

Covid 19 Safety Plan

Thank you to all members of the Maitland hockey community for your understanding and support, as we implement Covid 19 Safety Plan measures at training and matches. These measures are there for our safety. 

It is everyone’s personal responsibility to make sure you are signed in and signed out of the venue, to sanitise or wash hands frequently and to maintain at least 1.5m social distance. 

Keeping the 1.5m distance is vital to reduce the possibility of virus transmission. Please be aware of this, especially near the gates and around high traffic areas. This includes players, spectators and volunteers. Please stand or sit in areas away from the entrances/gates. 

A copy of the Maitland Hockey Covid 19 Safety Plan (approved by Hockey NSW) is available at the gate, if you wish to read it. 

If you have visited or you are living in a “hot spot” and/or if you have symptoms of Covid 19, please do not attend our hockey centre. 

As you would be aware, heavy fines can be issued if we are not following safety protocols, especially everyone keeping 1.5m apart. 

Covid-safe

With the return of our women’s competition only a few short sleeps away, and juniors the week after, here are some reminders about staying covid-safe at hockey.

COVID-19 Update

Maitland Hockey Inc is adopting this response and as such all competitions and training will be suspended until a further review closer to 2 May 2020. Please ensure all team contacts are made aware of this advice. Please see the following link to Hockey NSW official statement https://www.hockeynsw.com.au/latest-news/hockey-nsw-covid-19-response/
