Gathering Limits at Level 2 – community sport requirements
Over the last week there have been increasing concerns about the requirement for a 100-person limit for community sport activities as a social gathering vs gatherings at event facilities, which can now host events with no limits on persons provided there is 1-metre distancing in place.
We have now clarified that the intent of the health order at Alert Level 2 is to limit community sport to social gatherings of 100 people, with no physical distancing in place allowing contact sport to be played. Shifting these community sport requirements to align them with permissions at event facilities would lead to increased public health risk.
As a result, our guidance has been amended to reflect that the activity of community sport (including community sport competitions and events) - regardless of venue, indoor or outdoor - should be considered a social gathering and as such, the 100 number cap applies, with no social distancing for participants while playing or competing. We appreciate that this is more restrictive than originally interpreted, but this is in line with the Health Order and designed to reduce the associated public health risk.
Port Hills is one of the largest athletics clubs in Canterbury with over 350 members.
The club caters for all-comers, whether you just want to get fit, wish to improve times and distances you have achieved at school, would like to get back to the sport you left behind years ago, or already excel as an athlete.
