Fencing SA is continuing to monitor the situation regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19) and the priority for Fencing SA is the safety and well-being of our members and families.

Open events scheduled for tomorrow will proceed as scheduled.

Please ensure that you have and use your own equipment and in particular do not share the use of Masks and Gloves.

Fencing SA recommends preventative actions regarding respiratory illnesses, including:
Practising good hand hygiene and sneeze/cough hygiene is the best defence against most viruses.

You should:

o Wash your hands frequently with soap and water, before and after eating, and after going to the toilet;
o Cover your cough and sneeze, dispose of tissues, and use alcohol-based hand sanitiser; and
o If unwell, avoid contact with others (touching, kissing, hugging, and other close contact)

As with all illnesses, it’s important that you stay home if you are unwell.

If you have a cough, fever, shortness of breath, please do not attend your club nor attend any of Fencing SA events. Please seek medical advice.

Covid19 Risk Minimisation

Covid19 Risk Minimisation

Covid19 Risk Minimisation

The FencingSA board, in light of the COVID-19, is temporarily suspending the requirement for fencers to shake hands at the end of a match for all FencingSA competitions and events.

Shaking hands is currently part of the rules of the sport. The penalty for refusing to shake hands would normally be a Black Card.

Fencers are still required to return to the on-guard line and salute at the end of a match. Referees and participants will be reminded of this rule change at any FSA competition.

FSA recommends that any affiliated club consider adopting a similar approach to ending matches/bouts until further notice.

FSA also requires that any fencers, families or spectators that have travelled from any country identified as at risk by the Australian government not attend any FencingSA competition or event for a period of two weeks from the date of return to Australia. The latest information for at risk countries can be found at www.smartraveller.com.au.
