Quarantine protocols will become AFL ‘bible’

Quarantine measures introduced by the league to enable training and AFL games to restart with government approval will become “the bible” for players and officials to follow in 2020, according to AFL CEO Gill McLachlan.

The AFL is working on establishing an extensive set of protocols that will guide players and officials when they ramp up preparation for games to resume in stadiums without crowds.

McLachlan told Fox Footy on Saturday he had examined an initial document relating to quarantine measures that already ran to 15 pages as the AFL’s medical team, led by Dr Peter Harcourt, liaised with government, chief medical officers and international sports in order to take a proposal to the government.

“Resilience measures and the protocols being formed by government and the chief medical officers and others our team are talking to – including international sports – will form a set of protocols that will become the bible which will govern how all our players, officials and our game goes forward,” McLachlan said.
