Sharks coach circles new challenge as a family man

IF at first you don’t succeed, then try again.

Port Macquarie Sharks coach James Kelly subscribes to that theory.

And it’s just as well after wife Maddison fell pregnant in October last year following years of unsuccessful attempts.

In line with the recent Health Order, the Government now permits us to only allow entry to people who can prove they have been fully vaccinated (i.e. had two doses of a government-approved covid-19 vaccination).

We understand your frustration, we feel it too. We have chosen to do whatever it takes to ensure that we can bring about some normality as soon as possible by complying with the Government regulations. If we all work together to get to the 90% vaccination rate, the sooner we get to all experience more freedoms.

This is a temporary measure until we reach the 90% vaccination rate required by the Government, which at this stage looks like it will be December 1. We look forward to welcoming back all of our customers and additional freedoms at that point.

In addition to these measures, our venue will be complying with all other current restrictions, include the wearing of masks indoors, (unless eating or drinking) maintaining a safe 1.5m distance from others and any venue capacity limits that may be applicable

For more information about COVID-19 or COVID Vaccinations please call the national Coronavirus helpline on 1800 020 080.
