Two racing industry participants at the centre of a possible COVID-19 breach in Brisbane last Saturday have tested negative to Coronavirus.

Queensland Racing Integrity Commissioner Ross Barnett said the alleged breach of the Coronavirus guidelines while disappointing, was a rare occurrence as most racing participants had followed the rules since the Pandemic began.

โ€œIt has been a credit to the Queensland racing industry as participants have kept racing going throughout the period and supported jobs in the industry,โ€ he said.

Racing Queensland (RQ) said the industry had operated under strict biosecurity protocols since March including mandatory temperature testing; restrictions around training, trackwork and animal transport protocols; and self-isolation periods for licensees who travel from inter-state.

โ€œThe Queensland racing industry has been extremely vigilant since the COVID-19 outbreak,โ€ RQ CEO Brendan Parnell said.

โ€œIt is incumbent on all of our licensed participants โ€“ and patrons โ€“ to ensure adherence to the strict biosecurity protocols that are in place in order to keep them and their fellow Queenslanders safe.โ€

QRIC Stewards were made aware of a possible breach concerning the two who had travelled from Murwillumbah in NSW on Saturday morning and attended the Doomben racecourse in a possible breach of Racing Queensland COVID-19 guidelines.

As soon as Stewards became aware the two people were on course they were directed to leave and undergo COVIDโ€“19 testing and both have tested negative to the virus.
