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 COVID-19 Exposures List:

Moderate Risk:

9 August 2022
Ball Don’t Lie v Hawks, 7pm
Thunder v Dunkin Donuts, 9pm
This post will serve as a rolling update on potential CPL Exposure incidents. In line with current ACT Gov directions, a MODERATE EXPOSURE incident occurs when the CPL is notified of a positive RAT or PCR test, and the test or onset of symptoms occurred in the 2 days following a game (i.e Wednesday or Thursday).
Where a person tests positive and shows symptoms more than 2 days after a game, the *potential* exposure is considered lower risk, and is considered to be a MONITOR FOR SYMPTOMS incident.
EVERYONE should monitor for symptoms and take a RAT if symptoms become present.
CPL remains committed to the safety of its players and the community, and this new exposure serves as a timely reminder that despite restrictions lifting in ACT, COVID remains very much present in the community. CPL will provide updates in coming days. Please contact the CPL inbox or CPL page if you have any queries or concerns.
