Share this article

Dandenong Basketball would like to remind all of its patrons of the need to follow all guidelines when utilizing our facility, including the need to STAY HOME if feeling unwell.

We have a number of measures in place to ensure those playing, officiating and spectating can do so in a COVID-Safe manner. DBA patrons can assist us in this endeavour by following the below guidelines, isolating when required to do so and staying home if feeling unwell. Protect your team, your coaches and your club so we can all enjoy basketball together!

  • All patrons aged 8+ are required to wear a mask AT ALL TIMES INDOORS, unless they are actively participating in the competition. Masks must then go back on immediately after competition.
  • We encourage you to also wear a mask outside the stadium
  • Please practice social distancing at all times both indoors and outdoors.
  • All patrons & participants will need to check in using the Services Victoria QR Code provided.
  • All patrons aged 18+ must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19
  • Please ENTER and EXIT Venues following signage posted around the venue.
  • Teams should not arrive to their games earlier than 10 minutes before the scheduled start time.
  • Teams should exit the court promptly once their game is completed, preferably within 5 minutes
  • Hand Sanitising stations will be placed throughout the stadium for your use
  • We ask that only two (2) spectators per player attend each game, excluding dependants

Where there is a positive case, please follow the below process –

Positive Cases / Close Contacts 

While Victoria’s isolation rules have changed, many of the COVID-19 risks still remain.

Should a participant, staff member, volunteer, yourself or anyone in relevant families develop any symptoms, we strongly encourage individuals to get tested and follow Victorian Government health directives.

If someone tests positive after attending a basketball activity, the following is recommended:

  • The individual notifies their club.
  • The club notifies the team involved about the positive result – recommends they get tested.
  • The club also notifies the association (DBA) so that they can also notify the opposition team and referees. This group are known as ‘social’ contacts.
  • Any social contact experiencing symptoms should use a Rapid Antigen Test. Understandably these are difficult to obtain at the moment, this website can help in locating purchase options.
  • If the test is negative, there is no need to isolate, but they should monitor for symptoms and use a Rapid Antigen Test daily for 5 days.
  • If someone tests positive on a Rapid Antigen Test, they must report the result

To see in detail what to do if someone tests positive to COVID-19, or has been told they are a close contact, you can follow the checklists and information resources here.  

Please read Basketball Victoria’s latest Return To Sport update for further information and to understand the Positive Case/Close Contact protocols.
