parkrun Australia COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Update: 18 September


On 4 September we published an update on our move to sub-national reopening of parkrun events. Our three events in the Northern Territory are therefore set to reopen this weekend, which is incredibly positive news.


As outlined in our previous update, in Western Australia we are not in a position to reopen events under the current phase of restrictions (1.5 metre separation requirement) and our discussions with the WA Department of Health are continuing. The tentative start date for Phase 5 of the WA COVID-19 roadmap is 24 October and we therefore provisionally intend to reopen events in WA on that day, under our COVID-19 Framework. This date is subject to change, in either direction, depending on Government announcements.


During our weekly updates since April we have been clear that two weeks is the minimum notice we will give to volunteer teams prior to the reopening of events. Therefore please be assured that we will provide confirmation in accordance with this timeframe.


In Tasmania we have clarified the density requirements with the Sport & Recreation Department and have officially submitted our framework for approval.


Whilst we are in regular discussions with the remaining State and Territory Government departments, there are no significant changes to our last update.


Thanks, as always, for your support and patience.
