24 December 2021

Following the amendments to the NSW Government Public Health Order, all participants and Clubs are reminded that face masks must be worn by persons over 12 years of age including the following circumstances:

 

  • in an indoor area of premises other than a place of residence, or
  • working at a hospitality venue and dealing directly with members of the public.

 

The Public Health Order defines an indoor area as follows:

 

  • Includes an area in a building or other structure, whether or not temporary, which has a roof, ceiling or other top covering, but does not include an area with at least 2 sides open to the weather.

 

Any participant with a medical condition or a physical disability that may restrict the ability to wear a mask must wear a scarf or similar face covering. An exemption letter from a medical practitioner must be provided to HRNSW in support of this position.  

It will be the responsibility of the individual to bring their own mask to a race meeting.

HRNSW Stewards may impose a fine upon a person observed not wearing a face mask as required pursuant to AHRR 238.

Any enquiries should be directed to HRNSW Stewards on (02) 9722 6655.

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