From Monday 18 October (amended 20 and 21 October) a new COVID-19 Public Health Order is in place for New South Wales. AusCycling has put together this guide to summarise the rules for clubs and riders.

By necessity, this table and guide is only a simplified interpretation. You should refer to the NSW Health website and Public Health Orders for full details.

NSW 80 per cent reopening roadmap table AusCycling

Community sport

Community sport, including competition, is now permitted. Specific restrictions are based on the setting (indoor or outdoor) outlined below.

Outdoor gatherings

Adults (aged over 16 years) who have been fully vaccinated for COVID-19, any children under 16, and anyone who has a medical certificate compliant with the Public Health Order may participate.

The maximum number of people for a COVID-19 safe outdoor public gathering is the lesser of 1,000 people and 1 person per 2 square metres if the organiser has a community sport COVID-19 Safety Plan.

Any other outdoor gathering is permitted to have the lesser of 50 people and 1 person per 2 square metres without a COVID-19 Safety Plan.

Unvaccinated children under 16 may participate in outdoor community sport and gatherings and will count towards the total number of people.

A child under 16 is not required to be accompanied by an adult member of the household. All adults attending the gathering must be fully vaccinated.

For adults who are not fully vaccinated, the maximum gathering size is 2 persons.

Indoor facilities

Adults (aged over 16 years) who have been fully vaccinated for COVID-19, any children under 16, and anyone who has a medical contraindication certificate compliant with the Public Health Order may participate.

The maximum capacity is 1 person per 4 square metres. Except for gym and dance classes, which are capped at 20 people, there is no other limit on gathering sizes for activities.

People over 12 years of age must wear masks, except when exercising.

A child under 16 years is not required to be accompanied by an adult member of the household. All adults attending an indoor recreation facility must be fully vaccinated.

Facility operators must have a gyms and indoor recreation COVID-19 Safety Plan in place.

Adults who are not fully vaccinated must not enter indoor recreation facilities.

Travel

Greater Sydney residents can travel anywhere within Greater Sydney (including Central Coast, Wollongong and Shellharbour local government areas), but cannot enter Regional NSW.

Residents in Regional NSW are allowed to travel but can't enter Greater Sydney.

Proof of Vaccination

You must carry proof of vaccination whenever you are participating in an outdoor gathering of more than 2 people, and in most indoor settings.

The person principally responsible for organising an activity that is a controlled outdoor public gathering or COVID-19 safe outdoor public gathering, and the occupier of indoor recreation facilities, must take reasonable steps to ensure that an unvaccinated adult does not attend.

For example: having prominent signs stating requirements, Service NSW QR codes, staff checking vaccination status upon entry and only accepting valid forms of evidence of vaccination, or medical exemption.

For more information, see the NSW Government Vaccination Compliance and Obligations Fact Sheet.

Dunc Gray Velodrome

Dunc Gray Velodrome will undergo cleaning and maintenance ahead of a planned reopening for member training bookings on Monday 25 October.

Further information on bookings and conditions of entry will be available in due course on the Dunc Gray Velodrome facility page.

Further information

These guidelines will remain current until the NSW Government releases new Public Health Orders. We will provide an update at that time.

As part of the NSW Government’s re-opening roadmap, the Government has indicated that from 1 December it will no longer restrict unvaccinated people from participating in gatherings and community sport.

More information is available at the Reopening NSW Roadmap.
