Here you will find all the information you need to know how both the men’s and women’s New Zealand Lacrosse associations (collectively New Zealand Lacrosse) are responding to the COVID-19 pandemic, and what we’re doing to make sure our people stay safe.
What’s happened so far?
As of 12pm on Friday 12 March, Auckland will move to Alert Level 1, to be at the same level as the rest of New Zealand.
Further detailed information will be provided as and when possible following on-going guidance and advice from Sport NZ and NZ Government.
Following the move to Alert Level 1, please take time to review the 12 March 2021 – NZ Lacrosse Guidelines (Level 1)
Status of Community Lacrosse Activities:
Under the current Alert Level 1 and Government guidelines, all Lacrosse activity may return.
Where possible, the following should still apply:
● Record keeping to enable contact tracing if required.
● Equipment and surfaces should be regularly cleaned and disinfected where practical.
● Good personal hygiene practices should continue – wash and dry hands before and after activity, cough into elbow and don’t touch your face.
● Stay home if you’re sick and do not take part in Lacrosse activities if you have flu-like symptoms, self-isolate at home and get tested immediately.
Please see the NZ Lacrosse Return to Lacrosse at Alert Level 1 appended to this Guideline for further details.
This supports Sport NZ and NZ Government guidelines and requirements.
