The Victorian Institute of Sport (VIS) has released information on what the easing of COVID-19 restrictions mean for community sport and recreation in the State.
VIS said metropolitan Melbourne and regional Victoria were now at the same point in the State’s roadmap to reopening.
“Outdoor contact sport permitted for people 18 and under, limited to the minimum number of people required to play and facilitate the activity,” VIS said.
“One spectator per child is permissible for supervision purposes,” it said.
“Outdoor non-contact sport permitted for adults and people 18 and under, limited to the minimum number of people required to play and facilitate the activity.”
VIS said ‘non-contact sport’ meant a sport capable of being played with distance of 1.5 metres between participants.
It said adults were not yet permitted to resume indoor sport.
“Indoor non-contact sport can also resume for those aged 18 years where a distance of 1.5 metres can be maintained for a maximum of 20 people,” it said.
“Spectators are limited to one parent, guardian or carer only, where a child requires supervision.”
VIS said outdoor swimming pools, including swimming lessons, were limited to the one person per four-square-metres rule or 50 people, whichever number was smaller.
It said indoor pools were also subject to the four-square-metre rule or a maximum of 20 people.
