N95 masks are the most effective mask to prevent the spread of the Delta strain and accordingly persons are requested to use this type of mask. At a minimum surgical mask must be worn. Cloth masks are ineffective against the Delta strain and therefore their use is not permitted.
Mandatory face masks (N95 or surgical) are to be worn by all persons including Essential Personnel and patrons (where permitted) at race meetings and barrier trials conducted throughout NSW.
Mandatory face masks (N95 or surgical) are to be worn by all Essential Personnel in attendance on a racecourse or whilst working on licensed premises or stables in the Greater Sydney Area. This includes race meetings, trackwork, jump outs and barrier trials.
