Playing Safe


The health and safety of all families, employees, volunteers, and facilitators is our top priority.

Play Matters Australia responds to the changing requirements of COVID-19 daily. We guide and support our employees, volunteers, families, facilitators, and members to reduce the risk of infection from COVID-19 at Play Matters Australia programs and locations across Australia.

The Australian population (aged 16 and over) has reached high levels (greater than 92%) of vaccination status. Now that the population has reached this level of vaccination, Australia has moved from an elimination strategy to learning to live with COVID-19. Play Matters Australia will always align to government legislation and directives in each state or territory.

COVID-19 Updates

 

Our vision of connected children, families, and communities guides us to ensure our play experiences are provided in a COVID-safe environment. This means that from time to time and depending on the current advice, Play Matters Australia play experiences may be delivered in several ways, including face-to-face and online.

By selecting your state or territory on the map shown, you will see a brief outline of how play experiences are being delivered; however, if you are unsure, please get in touch with the person in charge of your play experience for specific details.
