Covid-19 & NetFest

Covid-19 as at 27 August 2020

2020 has presented challenges and our commitment to you is to provide a safe and enjoyable event for all. For the most up to date Covid-19 safe restrictions please visit the Queensland Health Website

Will NetFest have a Covid-19 safety plan?

Yes. The health and safety of our participants is paramount. We are currently working with Queensland Public Health Unit to develop our Covid-19 safety plan to ensure it meets all government requirements. Once the plan has been finalised it will be placed on the NetFest website and communicated via social and electronic newsletters.

Will NetFest be different this year because of the Covid-19 pandemic?

When not on the netball court, people will be required to adhere to social distancing requirements of 1.5 metres. We will have sanitiser stations available across all areas of both venues. To assist with contact tracing if required at the time of the event a check in/check out station will be set up at each entry/exit point at the venues. When the netball is done for the day we are currently working through a range of ideas for the NetFest Party so stay tuned!

I don’t live in Queensland but want to travel to NetFest

At the time of launching NetFest, Queensland borders are closed. That means if you reside outside of Queensland and want to participate at NetFest you need to follow Queensland government guidelines on quarantining. Refer to the QLD Health Website for the latest information. We are hopeful that restrictions lift prior to NetFest and participants from interstate will be able to attend NetFest this year.

If I enter a team and NetFest is cancelled due to Covid-19 or my team can’t travel to the Sunshine Coast due to Covid-19 border restrictions can I get a refund?

Yes. Your entry fee will be refunded if your team cannot participate in NetFest due to Covid-19. The entry fee will be refunded less a transaction fee.

What happens if I am feeling unwell during NetFest?

If you are feeling unwell or showing any signs or symptoms of Covid-19, such as: cough, fever, sore throat, fatigue, or shortness of breath please get tested and stay at home.

Please also stay home if;

  1. You have been in close contact with a person who has tested positive for Covid-19
  2. You have tested positive for Covid-19
