Covid-19 Update: Safe Return to Play

The GAA, An Cumann Camogaíochta and the LGFA have published a plan for a safe return to Gaelic games for the three organisations.

The plan is the work of a specially appointed Advisory Committee, which included representatives of all three bodies, the GPA and a number of medical experts.

It offers a route back to activity, subject to the government timelines being achieved in the weeks and months ahead.

It is broken down into sections covering Medical Advice; Preparing for a Safe Return; Information for Players and Team Personnel; Summary and Checklist; Roadmap for Return to Activity

Some of the stand-out elements of the report include:

  • A gradual return to on-field non-contact activity in Phase Three of the Government plan in small groups.
  • The need for an online education programme and new measures around temperature checking and completed documentation before training and games.
  • A return to contact sport on July 20.
  • Provisional windows for club activity and the return of inter-county training and competitions.

The document mirrors the Government roadmap and outlines the opt-in approach of the wider Gaelic games family regarding a possible return to activity and play.

The full plan is available below.
