COVID-19 Health Questionnaire Released Today
June 23, 2020
The Covid Health Questionnaire is now available. Each person participating in Gaelic Games must complete this questionnaire prior to the first occasion that they return to the Club.
Forms can be accessed by visiting the URL https://returntoplay.gaa.ie.
Each person participating in Gaelic Games must also re-confirm that their Health Status hasn’t changed on each subsequent occasion that they participate.
Parents/Guardians can submit forms on behalf of their dependents and forms can also be submitted on behalf of persons who may struggle with completing the electronic form themselves.
COVID Supervisors in clubs can verify that individual members of their teams/panels have submitted forms and are permitted to participate.
They do not have access to view the specific information provided via the Health Questionnaire, they will simply be able to see that the questionnaire has been submitted. Personal Information contained on the Health Questionnaires is stored for a maximum period of three weeks.
Go HERE for information on how to fill out the Covid Health Questionnaire.
All Covid Supervisors/Club Officers, Players/Team Personnel, and the Parents/Guardians of Underage Players must also complete the GAA’s Covid-19 Club Education eLearning Module.
Go HERE to access the GAA’s Covid-19 Club Education eLearning Module.
Both of these elements must be completed prior to your return to Club activity.
COVID-19 Club Education eLearning Module launched for Gaelic Games
June 19, 2020
The GAA, LGFA and Camogie Association have announced the launch of an eLearning module to inform club volunteers on the guidelines for the safe return to Gaelic Games.
The eLearning module has been prepared for Covid Supervisors/Club Officers, Players/Team Personnel, and the Parents/Guardians of Underage Players. Anyone attending training sessions or games in Club facilities must also take the module to gain an understanding of the Safe Return Guidelines.
The module takes 20-minutes to complete and can be accessed anytime via any PC, mobile or tablet device. Those who pass a simple quiz will be able to gain a Certificate which they can print or take a screenshot of to show the Covid Supervisor for their team before their initial return to Club activity, e.g. a training session or game.
Any major changes to the content of the module will be made as soon as possible after policy updates are confirmed and such updates will also be highlighted in the latest updates section of the Covid-19 Education page on the GAA Learning Portal.
The recent Club Briefing Webinar and other resources such as posters/FAQ lists etc. are also available.
Coronavirus (COVID-19) – Return to Play Guidelines – June 15, 2020
We are very excited at the prospect of a return to play in the near future. Currently, it is planned that we will return to non contact training in the week beginning June 29, 2020.
In the week commencing July 20, we will be allowed to have full contact sessions in preparation for games and competitions that will be scheduled in late July, early August and beyond.
We look forward to welcoming all players, mentors, parents and friends back to the Club’s facilities soon.
Each team within the Club will need to appoint a COVID-19 Supervisor. As outlined elsewhere, this role and its associated responsibilities is currently under review by GAA HQ. However, some of the possible roles for this person are outlined below:
C-19 Supervisor Overview – Draft
Please see an update to the previously provided return to play guidleines here
Coronavirus (COVID-19) – Press Release and Return to Play Guidelines – June 2020

A copy of a Joint Media Release and a document presenting the guidelines for a safe return to play are presented here. You are urged to take the time to familiarise yourself with these documents.
The current target date for the opening of GAA grounds and a return to limited activity under strict guidelines remains as June 29, 2020.

Media Release from Meath GAA on return to play – June 2020
Coronavirus (COVID-19) – Update from GAA
We have received the following message by email from the GAA. We ask you to give it your full attention.
Additionally, we have added the latest messaging from the HSE covering guidelines around volunteering referenced in this communication.
These documents may be viewed here.
I wish to draw your attention again to our previously issued guidance document of March 20th.
We advised you that, until March 29th, games and training were suspended, club gyms were to close, and Player Injury Fund cover was suspended.
We subsequently instructed that club bars should also close for the period.
Please be advised that, in line with recent government announcements, these measures and closures are now extended to Sunday April 19 inclusive, at which stage arrangements will be reviewed.
In addition, we are now instructing GAA Clubs to close their facilities completely.
This is to include the use of all pitches and property for recreational purposes, including walking, casual games or gatherings.
Where it is not possible to restrict access please erect signage to the effect that all GAA facilities are closed and all activity suspended.
In order to facilitate an orderly resumption of activities when circumstances permit, Clubs are encouraged to proceed as normal with their membership registration process where practical. Clubs of course should be mindful of the possible changed financial circumstances of members.
Similarly, club lottos may proceed if they are run on an online basis and do not involve wholesale engagement with the public.
Clubs are also advised to refrain from undertaking new capital projects while support funding for this type of work is suspended.
As a national / international organisation, we have a part to play in emphasising the need to practice social distancing, as outlined by the authorities.
It is imperative that we exercise extreme caution keeping two metres between people when taking physical exercise while encouraging people to consider using off-peak times when they are less likely to meet others.
Attached is the latest messaging from the HSE covering guidelines around volunteering which we advise our clubs to consider as they involve themselves in community-based volunteer efforts.
Individual volunteers are asked to register with Volunteer Ireland (26 Counties) and Volunteer Now (Six Counties).
We would like to thank everyone who has helped the GAA adhere to government guidelines up to this point.
We would also like to assure you that we, and the wider GAA team across our counties and provinces, are working hard to ensure that we are in the best possible position to return to our games when that time comes.
In the meantime, please stay safe, look out for one another and continue to adhere to the instructions of the Government and the Health Authorities at this most challenging time.
Go raibh maith agaibh,
Tomás Ó Riain Seán Ó hÓráin
Ard Stiúrthóir Uachtarán
Coronavirus (COVID-19) – Community Update
