UPDATE: We’ve created a new COVID-19 page to keep all updates in one place for our members.
Basketball Queensland (BQ) has made the decision to suspend all BQ related programs, events and fixtures until further notice.
As the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases rises in Queensland, we believe the decision to temporarily suspend all fixtures and events is an appropriate measure to ensure the safety of our members.
As an organisation, we believe the health and well being of our participants and members comes first.
This is not a decision that we have taken lightly and we would like to thank everyone for their understanding and patience during this difficult time.
Please be assured that BQ will continue to monitor the situation and provide further updates over the coming days.
Suspended Fixtures/Events include:
All QNJBC fixtures: 13 – 15 March
All CQJBC fixtures: 14 – 15 March
All BQJBC fixtures: 14 March
Townsville Club Coaches Course: 14 March
Advice to Members
BQ encourages all our members to take all reasonable precautions where appropriate to limit potentials risks in relation to the spread of the virus.
Transmission may occur from contaminated surfaces, so it is important to frequently wash your hands.
To protect yourself and others from infection practice good hand and respiratory hygiene including:
- cleaning hands with soap and water or alcohol-based hand rubs
- covering your nose and mouth with a tissue or flexed elbow when coughing or sneezing
- avoiding contact with anyone who has symptoms such as fever, a cough, sore throat, fatigue, and shortness of breath; and
- staying home if you are unwell.
If you are feeling unwell, please see your doctor immediately. Before your appointment, please call ahead and advise of your symptoms and recent travel so necessary precautions can be undertaken.
