BAFA rule adjustments for COVID-19

As of 1st April 2022, all temporary rules and officiating adjustments for COVID-19 have been withdrawn.

COVID is still a risk and people should take appropriate precautions to safeguard their own and others' safety, but there is no longer a need for us as a sport to regulate that.


Withdrawn material

The following changes were made to rules, game management and officiating relating to COVID-19 and applied during the 2021 BAFA and 2021-22 BUCS seasons. They are retained here for reference purposes. These or similar changes may need to be reintroduced should government advice change.
