Afternoon Tea

With the number of COVID cases and resulting hospitalisations still very high in South Australia, the Committee has considered that it would be prudent to put on hold the provision of shared afternoon tea until it is safer to do so.  Members are still able to interact socially after the competition and have the choice to bring their own refreshments for personal consumption if desired.

SAMA will not be providing shared afternoon tea until further notice.  

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. This is recommended 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.

COVID-Safe Recommendations 

SA Masters Athletics will conduct their events safely and in a manner that minimises risk of  infection by COVID-19.  From 24 May 2022, SAMA is no longer required to operate under a COVID-Safe Plan.

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.  We also request that those persons who are feeling ill should refrain from taking part.
