Match day guidance

New Zealand Rugby has developed guidance and advice for Clubs and Schools on how to implement safety protocols on match day under the COVID-19 Protection Framework.

This guidance provides support to rugby clubs and schools to develop a match day health and safety plan to support players, coaches and managers and spectators.

Checklists to support Clubs and Schools develop their plans can be found below under resources. 

Helpful information and resources on health and safety plans can also be found on the Worksdafe Webisite.

Not only will implementing the Guidelines help protect the community, but it may also limit the number of persons needing to enter isolation should there be a positive case at your club/venue.

Please note, these are not mandated directions, simply advice for mitigating risk of exposure and transmission.
