Club Update # 1 : Corona Virus (Covid-19)

Update # 1- 12 pm - Monday 16 March 2020

The NLFC Committee have been extensively discussing the Corona Virus and potential impact it has, and will have on our club. We are moving into uncharted territories with the ever changing day-to-day updates on the Corona Virus. At this stage we do not know of any cases within the club.

I want to reassure everyone that Noosa Lions FC is committed  to the health and safety of our members, staff and supporters. We have been monitoring advice from Queensland Health and the Australian Government and working with our partners FFA, Football Queensland and Sunshine Coast Football.  This morning FFA held a press conference and there were some directives from them regarding moving forward in the season.  More details will follow shortly.

In regards to other aspects of the club, business will remain as usual until further notice. However, we ask that everyone observes good hygiene practices, social distancing and stays away from the club if unwell.

What we ask you to do:

  • If you are feeling unwell, stay away from the club
  • Advise your coach if you are unwell and can’t attend training or games
  • If you have recently returned from anywhere overseas, self-isolate for 14 days
  • Practice good hygiene – wash hands, cough into elbow, don’t share drink bottles or towels
  • Not shake hands in greeting or with players and refs after games
  • When attending games, keep social distance of 1.2 – 1.5 metres from other spectators
  • Keep up to date with club communications

Thank you for your support and patience during these challenging times.
