SEQ WHEELCHAIR RUGBY LEAGUE REGARDING CORONAVIRUS
Dear SEQ Wheelchair Rugby League community,
Based on expert medical advice, State and Federal Governments have announced a "step change" approach to the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) and as of Monday 16 March 2020, there will be restrictions regarding gatherings of people and non-essential overseas travel.
Despite the Government recommendation not being actionable until Monday, based on discussion with Wheelchair Rugby League Australia & NSW Wheelchair Rugby League, SEQ Wheelchair Rugby League wishes to take a more proactive approach in protecting the health and wellbeing of the players and the families of our Wheelchair Rugby League community.
As such, competitions in SEQ will not proceed effective immediately, and this position will be maintained until further notice.
SEQ Wheelchair Rugby League will convene to discuss advice from experts and the league to manage the rapidly changing environment.
The virus and potential implications are changing constantly, will be monitored and acted upon accordingly, and we will keep you updated as new information comes to hand.
