NSFA adopts the NSW Health and Football NSW COVID Safe BBQ requirements.
For further information please visit the NSW Food Authority Website.
NSFA Ruling: BBQ’s are not permitted to be used on the side of playing fields during the remainder 2020 season.
For example, Reserves teams cooking a BBQ on grass surfaces whilst the First team match is underway.
Clubs are permitted for BBQ use if they meeting the following:
- Ensure appropriate glove use when preparing and handling food.
- BBQ cook(s) must wear face masks
- BBQ utensils must not be shared
- BBQ cooks(s) must wash utensils after use
- Hand sanitiser MUST be present for public use
- BBQ cooks and support staff are required to thoroughly wash their hands before/after shift
- Regular disinfectant and cleaning of tables and surfaces
- Where possible encourage the use of ETFPOS
- Maintain social distancing measures of 1.5 metres between canteen staff.
- As much as possible, create a barrier between customers and the food by covering it and moving it as far back from the counter front as the benchtop provides.
- Where possible, designate one staff member to handle money, to cook, to serve, to provide sauces (best practice scenario)
- Within the constraints of the venue/facility, ensure appropriate spacing when customers queue for service.
- Portable BBQ’s (able to be carried by a single person) are not permitted.
- Canteen staff/volunteers with a cold, cough or flu-like symptoms should not come to the game, and if appropriate be tested and/or self-isolate.
NSFA requires spectators and players cooling down after their fixture to position themselves on the opposite side of the field to the technical area (Players, Manager, Coach).
