COMPULSORY COVID-19 VACCINATIONS FOR ALL BOWLS TASMANIA EVENTS

by Rob McGuire

At its meeting on 7 January 2022 the Bowls Tasmania Board determined that Bowls Tasmania needs to lead the way and provide direction to regions and clubs regarding compulsory COVID-19 vaccinations.

Accordingly it is now Bowls Tasmania policy that:

  • Players would have to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 to be selected to play in future State teams.
  • Players in future Bowls Tasmania championships must be fully vaccinated and must show proof of vaccination to be eligible to play.
  • Players in Bowls Tasmania State Wide Challenge games played after 1 February 2022 must be fully vaccinated and must show proof of vaccination to be eligible to play.

The Bowls Tasmania Board further agreed to strongly recommend to regions and clubs that they follow the above Bowls Tasmania policy regarding all bowls under their jurisdictions.
