Return to Touch Football

Updated 15 January 2021

Queensland Touch Football (QTF) in conjunction with Touch Football Australia (TFA) has compiled a list of documents and resources to help Qld Affiliates be COVIDSafe and make the return to the field as easy as possible. QTF will continue to follow the latest advice and direction from the Queensland Department of Sport and Recreation and Queensland Health.



  • COVID-19 or has been in direct contact with a known or suspected case of COVID-19 within the last 14 days
  • Flu-like symptoms or who is a high health risk (e.g. due to age or pre-existing conditions)
  • Travelled internationally or to a COVID declared hotspot.

If a participant has symptoms or has been in contact with a known or suspected case of COVID-19 they must:

  • Advise Affiliate/Coach you are getting tested
  • Notify your Affiliate/Coach of a positive or negative test result once received

‘Get in. Play. Get Out’.

  • Arrive at the venue ready to play and then leave.
  • Please check-in and out of the venue.
  • Avoid congregating before or after training/games.
  • Maintain strict hygiene practices (ie sanitise hands regularly, don’t share equipment or water bottles).
  • Please adhere to strict physical distancing measures of 1.5m off the field of play.
