Public open space areas including sports ovals, fields and parks are all open. Tom Kelly Athletics Track is also open and groups must maintain a distance of 10 metres from other users.

Outdoor sport
All outdoor sport (contact and non-contact) can resume for under 18 players. All adult outdoor non-contact sport and contact sport in a non-contact manner may resume in line with COVID safe practices. Get in touch with your local club for further information around their return to sport plan.

Indoor activities

From Monday 9 November, many indoor activities are returning under the latest easing of coronavirus (COVID) restrictions.

Different COVID safe restrictions are in place based on the sport or recreation activity. To find out the latest on the return to indoor activities, please visit the Aquarena and YMCA websites or contact your local club.

The safety of our community is our top priority during this time. Continue to do your part to stop the spread of this virus by maintaining a physical distance of 1.5m, regularly washing your hands with hand sanitiser or soap and wearing a mask at all times (for residents over the age of 12).

In Manningham, we are following advice from the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) about coronavirus (COVID-19) and encourage everyone to visit the DHHS website for the most up to date information
