"COVID-19 Impact on Rugby National Risk Management and Insurance Programme
Players and Officials
A player or official (coach, club official, match official) is not able to utilise the coverage included within the Personal Injury Policy if they contract COVID-19 whilst carrying out their role or participating within Rugby. COVID-19 is not treated or viewed by the insurer to be a sudden or unforeseen specific event and the Personal Injury cover afforded by this policy is not intended to cover events that are caused directly or indirectly by or attributed to any sickness or illness.
Clubs and Associations
Club and Association officials are covered under the Public and Product Liability Insurance Policy (as per the terms and conditions of the policy) in the event a player, third party or official launches legal proceedings alleging negligence from a Club and/or Association official which has resulted in the player, third party or official contracting COVID-19 and incurring loss, damages and/or costs due to the alleged negligence.
To date the program insurer for the Public and Product Liability Insurance Policy has not placed restrictions on coverage for COVID-19."
