Racing Queensland has advised that it will conduct patron-free meetings across its three codes until further notice – click here to see the announcement – in order to manage the spread of COVID-19.
With a raft of biosecurity measures already in place, including a mandatory 14-day self-isolation period for licensed participants, RQ will introduce measures from Sunday 29 March that will provide five key thoroughbred regions and four key greyhound regions as part of a multi-staged approach to health and safety.
To assist clubs, participants and the general public with relevant information during the global pandemic, RQ will post the latest information – and updates – to this page.
Following the Federal Government’s advice that all non-essential, organised gatherings of more than 500 people be cancelled to manage the spread of COVID-19, RQ has confirmed that all future meetings – along with trials and trackwork – will be limited to key race-day personnel.
Access will be permitted to licenced participants who have a horse or greyhound engaged at the meeting, along with essential club, QRIC and RQ staff; broadcast services; approved accredited media; and associated staff required to conduct racing activities including veterinarians and ambulance services.
Access will not be permitted to the general public in any code, nor owners or on-course wagering providers.
Presently, Queensland Health is urging all communities to be extra vigilant about health and hygiene including:
If you or someone you know is suffering from COVID-19 symptoms or is otherwise unwell, please consult the Government’s latest health information via the links provided.
