COVID-19 - IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR NSW PARTICIPANTS
(effective 14th October 2022)
Racing NSW has conducted a review of its COVID-19 policies having regard to the changes to the NSW Health requirements in respect to self-isolation of positive COVID-19 cases that will be implemented effective 14 October 2022.
The following changes have been implemented:
PUBLIC HEALTH ORDERS & RACING NSW POLICIES
From 14 October 2022, pursuant to the NSW Health Orders, it will no longer be mandatory to self-isolate at home if you test positive to COVID-19.
Further, while it is not mandatory to self-isolate at home, NSW Health strongly recommends people who are sick or have tested positive to COVID-19 stay home until their symptoms have gone.
Consistent with the NSW Health position, if a participant has tested positive to COVID-19 or is displaying symptoms, that person SHOULD stay at home until their symptom/s have gone.
All other policies implemented by Racing NSW have now been rescinded including the requirement for jockeys and officials to undertake a Rapid Antigen Test prior to attending a race meeting.
