 Vaccinations – Restricted LGA’s of Concern

Effective 30 August 2021

The NSW Government has ordered that any authorised worker that works outside their restricted LGA of concern, must have had their first vaccination dose by that day or be at a work-site where they are rapid antigen tested. As Racing NSW cannot guarantee that every authorised worker can be rapid antigen tested each day, any authorised worker in this category must have their first dose of vaccine by 30 August 2021 to be eligible to be able to leave their restricted LGA of concern for the purposes of to work.

For example – a stablehand or trainer that lives in the Cumberland LGA and works at stables at Rosehill Gardens (Parramatta LGA) must have had their first dose of vaccine by 30 August 2021 to continue to be permitted to leave their LGA of residence (Cumberland) to work at Rosehill Gardens.

Authorised workers that only go to work within the restricted LGA of concern where they reside are not required to obtain a vaccine, but Racing NSW encourages all Essential Personnel to get vaccinated.

For Example - a stablehand or trainer that lives in the Liverpool LGA and works at stables at Warwick Farm (Liverpool LGA) does not require the first dose of vaccine by 30 August 2021 to continue to be able to be work at Warwick Farm. However, Racing NSW encourages all Essential Personnel to get vaccinated.

Workers who are subject to these vaccination requirements, must sent evidence of their vaccination status to steward@racingnsw.com.au before attending work on Monday 30 August 2021.

Effetcive 30 August 2021 persons from the Canterbury LGA who meet the above criteria may attend either Rosehill or Warwick Farm racecourse only.

Essential Personnel who do not reside in the restricted LGA’s of concern may leave Greater Sydney for the purpose of work where they cannot reasonably work from home, which includes working at a race meeting, provided they have a workers permit issued by Service NSW.
