SA Masters Athletics will conduct their events safely and in a manner that abides by current COVID-19 restrictions, and that complies with the COVID-Safe Plan (download here). From 15 April 2022 at sporting venues (indoors or outdoors) there is no longer a legal requirement to wear Face Masks, use Contact Tracing such as QR-code Check-In, or have a COVID Marshal present.
However, it is recommended that all participants in SAMA competition, including athletes, officials, volunteers and spectators continue to follow health advice and maintain social distancing and wash or sanitise their hands regularly.
SAMA Stance on Mask Wearing
Whilst there is no longer a requirement to wear Face Masks under current SA Government COVID-19 restrictions, all participants at SAMA events still have the option of wearing a mask if they prefer when in close vicinity of other persons, such as at the start/finish line and check-in location, and all other times when physical distancing is not practical. This is a personal choice and should be respected by others.
