Confirmed Covid at AIC

An email was received today stating that a coach of the under 15 girls has teated positive for Covid19, and were infectious at the time of the event.

As such, all those that had contact with the coach are now deemed close contacts


One of the coaches also brought her daughter into the stadium while she was meant to be isolating.

Obviously not a good run for the sport....

Given where the State is with COVID the event was never going to be COVID free. A number of confirmed cases is hardly a surprise.

If you let your child participate believing COVID wouldn't be an issue more fool you.

As above this is no surprise. Boys in 16's and 18's both tested positive during the tournament. I'm sure others would be positive afterwards. The virus is all but unavoidable now.

Plenty of people globally have had it twice.

But once you've had it, you are highly unlikely to have the same strain, and you are unlikely to have a bad case. Plus according to the previous history of these types of diseases, future strains are likely but not guaranteed to be less deadly.

No reports of any Tassie cases? That's a bit weird.

You can catch it twice it's a mutating virus hence delta, omicron etc

The AIC was split in two tournaments for age groups, so after the 16-18's had full teams and then individuals go down the decision to continue on to the 14-15's wasn't exactly the smartest or safest!

If the story that a coach brought their isolating child to this event, I hope it is investigated and they're punished. Sounds like they weren't a confirmed positive case, but still should have been treated as such.
But with the track history of SA Country coaches, this would rank down there unless the kid was sipping on a rum and coke and puffing on some Winnie blues in the carpark.

No one actually said it was a country coach, in fact it was a metro coach, but there is always 3 sides to a story and the police were called to investigate. The child was deemed a close contact and as a minor needs a legal guardian to isolate with them. People said they should have been home isolating, while the coach claimed iso period had finished.

Thank goodness it was a metro coach! Country have already had enough publicity with A Current Affair and the headline news story on the 6pm news in recent years.

Classy comment #429 understand in jest but we might need to be careful, checking last competitive games in U16 the country kids did OK. Might be something in the air.

EASY AS - Confirming that the coach was aware of the requirements for isolation.
The partner of the coach who took the minor to the game was sitting in the stands with her. He could have stayed in isolation with her to care for her?
I have been informed not only did the coach know the Child had to be isolating, but had still not have the child covid19 tested after finding out the night before that she was a close contact of a confirmed case.

Amazingly once caught out, that coach was not seen again for the tournament.
