COVID - AENA Current Status - Updated 21st Sept 2022

Whilst the Government removed the legal requirement to self-isolate if testing positive, we are encouraged to take personal responsibility concerning COVID-19, and self-isolation is still recommended.

Therefore, if you test positive or display symptoms of COVID-19, you should not attend netball activity.

We can now play in indoor and outdoor leagues and competitions using all the normal INF rules.

What does this mean for netball?

England Netball recommends the Netball Family maintain best practice and for netball organisers to continue to utilise many elements of our previous COVID-19 guidance. This should help keep the transmission of COVID-19 and other infectious diseases to a minimum.

Here is the AENA core guidance

1. Anybody who has tested positive or is displaying symptoms of COVID-19 should not attend netball activity. We recommend that all netball organisations continue to share this with their members/participants

2. Sanitisation of hands and equipment should continue.

3. Risk Assessments and Risk Mitigation plans should continue to be completed for any activity – these should continue to cover the risk of COVID-19 and its spread during netball activity. Any existing Risk Assessments produced may still be relevant and can still be used.
