CPL COVID-19 Guide

The CPL is required by regulation to maintain a COVID-19 safety plan, as well as provide guidance to its players, officials and spectators on participation in CPL activities.
These documents and resources will be reviewed on a regular basis as guidance and best practice measures are updated. When changes are made, notice will be sent to the CPL team captains, and notice will be provided through the CPL’s social media channels.

CPL Stage 4 Update:

The ACT Governments decision to move to Stage 4 changes our requirements for contract tracing. While this is exciting for CPL as we move further through the COVID Recovery Plan, it also changes some of the requirements when it comes to registering attendance at CPL events.

Previously, under Stages 2 and 3, the CPL QR Code system was used to record attendance and provide to the venue, as required as a part of our hiring agreements. This is no longer required of us by the venue, meaning the CPL QR Code system will no longer be used for Tuggeranong games.

With the move to Stage 4 taking effect from 2 December, as per ACT Health directives, it is however a requirement that all attendees use the Check In CBR app. All businesses in ACT are required to use the app if they wish to operate under Stage 4 restrictions.

If you and your team mates do not already have the app, CPL strongly recommends you install the app on your phone, as those who do not register attendance will not be permitted to enter the venue. This requirement applies to all businesses in ACT. If you are not familiar with the use of the app, it is very simple to use, takes 30 seconds to initially set up, and about 2 seconds to scan and register your attendance at a venue.

The app also allows for you to register the attendance of people who may not have their phone on them, or their phone is not able to operate the app. If any players fall into these categories, it is expected that a team mate will sign them in for the evening when attending CPL games.

The Check In CBR app system will take effect from Tuesday 8 December for CPL Tuggeranong.

CPL 2021
Early preliminary guidance would suggest that this will likely be a requirement until February 2021 at the earliest, meaning the use of Check In CBR app will continue for at least the beginning of the CPL 2021 season. Even if you are not likely to attend any further games this season, we recommend everyone downloads the app and familiarise themselves with its use so that it CPL 2021 can operate seamlessly. We will be running up to 5 games at a time in Tuggeranong next season, so with up to 15 teams arriving at the same time, it is imperative that entries are recorded as efficiently as possible.

If you have any further questions about any of the above, please contact cpl@canberraplayersleague.com
