Nbl Quarantine Issues

In light of the recent Covid breach by Daniel Trust being seen by a family member who had been in a classified "hot spot" and the fact that they had to keep him away from the team to allow them to travel to Perth I have a question.
Chris Reid the referee was up in Cairns and then officiated the 6ers v NZ game. With QLD also being deemed a "hot spot" wouldn't both teams last night now have been classed as being in close contact with a person who had been in a Covid area within the last 14 days, thus preventing both teams from now travelling to WA?

It's was a strange decision on Trist, it was not announced till just before the game, they would have been practicing all week and morning shoot around and then he’s announced out.
What about the rest of the team. Why were they allowed to play? Is all because they are going to WA ? They all would’ve had contact with Trist.
if so Perth should be made to relocate.
If the player had been superstar player, would anything be said?
I’m all for correct procedures but none this is adding up.
Adelaide are now in the same boat as NZ as they play last night.

G2G pass asks have you been in direct contact with anyone from QLD, NSW or VIC. Direct contact is defined as 15 mins face to face in any setting or in a room for more than 2 hours. NZ players didn't have direct contact with Trist’s family member I assume

According to WA QLD is a hot-spot. And the concern wasn't that the team had been in contact with Trists family member, but spend 2 hrs running around a basketball court with a referee who is classed as having been in a hot spot in the last 14 days.

I'm certain Trist had direct contact with a family member, but would have been around the team. Surely Trist didn’t come away from his meeting and say to all nz players and coaches stay away I’m going to be covid risk. For fu.ks sake his club said it was fine. He would’ve gone about his normal routine.

Please explain to me how nz and now Adelaide are not the same risk as him as well as coaches staff and refs.

NZ would have to have met with the family member for the entire team to be excluded/required to quarantine

You have to remember Trist's family member isn’t positive for COVID so it is only direct contacts

So the only reason Trist had to stand down is because they are going to Perth. Get Perth to the east coast like all other sides that have been on the road since Christmas.

Adelaide have been at home for first 4 games yet people aren't whinging about them.

Trist is a benchwarmer anyway.

Man Trist came back to Oz with a great reputation and played in the SEABL and then stank it up from his first game here. How is in the NBL to me is simply amazing.
How any NBL side can consider him NBL quality is simply even more amazing.

"Adelaide have been at home for first 4 games yet people aren't whinging about them."

Yeah, it's actually 6 games in a row at this point, they'll get screwed over in the backend though (although maybe with longer breaks). Somebody's gotta host teams while they wait out time until they're allowed into Perth, since WA's not letting anyone in unless they've not been in a state that all but 2 (themselves and Adelaide) are supposed to be based.

Anyway I think Perth will end up playing New Zealand 4 times in a row in Perth after they're done with their home games against SEM that might last them until the bubble messes things up (or buys them time until the country is opened up again).

If you think he can play or not is irrelevant, the point is Trist could've played and continued to play anywhere in Australia except Perth. He was stopped from playing in Adelaide due to nz going to Perth next. Seems totally unfair on Trist and nz. If Perth want home games change the rules to comply with other states or get on the road like nz, SEM, Illawarra, Sydney and Melbourne.

#307 From the WA Government page

https://www.wa.gov.au/government/announcements/nsw-and-queensland-move-low-risk

Effective 12.01am, Monday, January 25, NSW and Queensland will become 'low risk' states.

I think it's you who possibly should go find a brain

Wildcats are yet to play a game and were just made to do 14 days isolation.. yet we are already being favoured by the league according to people on hoops. We are probably the reason for the poor calls in the NZ/Adelaide game as well.

I can't believe people are suggesting that an entire club should have to relocate and the schedule revised again just so Trist could play.

#320 exactly. WA's rules are WA's rules. Wildcats do not make them and the NBL are the ones constructing the schedule. Abide or you have to quarantine. It's unfortunate but kind of simple. AFL managed to do it. A-League have managed to do it. Big Bash have managed to do it

NSW and QLD might become "Low Risk" (like Victoria is right now) that still means teams from there have to self-isolate for 14 days if they go to WA. So for the NBL nothing really changes. Need to wait for WA to lower them to "Very Low Risk" (like SA, Tasmania and the territories) for it to matter for the NBL.

The rebuttal was #307 was being a wanker. WA rules are WA rules and a forward date for a change of classification has been announced on their website.

Wait why can't the Breakers have home games?

Did he definitely do a game on the 18th? The 16th would put him outside the 14 day window and he'd be fine.

Get used it. We should just be happy we're getting games, and somebody is playing at home and selling tickets.

If anybody is going to be worried about who gets how many home games, this is probably a good season to skip.

Come Playoffs, we may see all 3 games played at one venue, or worse a neutral venue.
People are still dying from this fucking virus, so let's keep perspective

Reid is not considered a direct contact to the team so it's irrelevant.

Do you have a source on that? He'd obviously be around them less than teammates and such, but it'd be a weird distinction to make.

That was the basis of my question. Is a referee, aka Chris Reid or Damian Lyons, who came from QLD and Vic respectively, deemed to be a close contact to the teams by sharing the same court area for a 2-3 hour period? If so, then SE Melbourne and NZ, shouldn't be allowed to enter WA based on the current covid rules.
The fact it looks like they had 3 locals on the Perth game today hightlights that no other officials could fly in due to that status, because both Vaughan and Mick were deemed close contacts to Chris and Damian after they worked games together, thus preventing them travelling.

Video Vaughan lives in QLD so he is automatically in the quarantine bin. He hasn't worked a game with either.

they shouldve just stuck away from WA and kept the teams in a bubble within 2 states
