In relation to COVID-19 protocols, Athletics Victoria falls under the Community Sport guidelines. In line with this, the 2022 Victorian State Championships will require no vaccination status from competitors or spectators.
However, it is important to note that any competitor who does qualify for the 2022 Australian Track & Field Championships may be subject to the vaccination requirements set out by Athletics Australia at that time. At the time of publication, all persons aged 16 and over will need to show proof of full COVID-19 vaccination or a valid medical exemption to gain entry to Athletics Australia meets. All attendees (athletes, coaches, officials, volunteers, staff, spectators) will need to show their COVID-19 digital certificate on their smart device (as part of the QR Code check-in process) OR provide photo identification with a printed immunisation certificate.
Athletics Australia continues to review their stance on event attendance and vaccination requirements in line with venue conditions and will release updated information as required.
