With the State of NSW having reached the 80% vaccination level and consistent with previous industry notification provided by HRNSW, the following changes have been made to HRNSW COVID-19 industry protocols with immediate effect:

COVID TESTS

Industry participants are no longer required to provide a negative COVID test result to HRNSW prior to attending any race meeting, trials or public training facility in the Greater Sydney area.

This includes industry participants based in regional NSW who are returning to their region after attending a race meeting in the Greater Sydney area.

Importantly, participants are reminded to review NSW Government Health Orders.

FACE MASKS

In line with current NSW Government advice, face masks are still required to be worn in Steward’s Rooms, Swab Stalls and Driver’s Change Rooms.

DRIVER’S COLOURS

Drivers are required to wear the race colours as published in the official race book or as advised to HRNSW in accordance with stipulated times.

STABLE REPRESENTATIVES

Until further notice, Trainers are still required to nominate a representative to act on their behalf, along with nominating a stablehand to accompany them on HARNESSWEB.

VACCINATIONS

Proof of vaccination is required to be provided to HRNSW before any person attends any race meeting or trials.

Vaccination information, including COVID 19 vaccination certificates or Medicare immunisation certificates, can be sent to vaccine@hrnsw.com.au

Those documents can be obtained online or by contacting the Australian Immunisation Register on 1800 653 809.

Any person wishing to make enquiries should contact HRNSW Stewards on 9722 6655 or email stewards@hrnsw.com.au

HRNSW management reminds all industry participants of the available industry support program.

HRNSW will continue to monitor NSW Government Health Orders and will provide further updates to the HRNSW Industry as required.
