Group Nine is awaiting advice from NSW Rugby League before deciding how to approach the outcome of their season.
After consulting with clubs, the board had devised a staged return in the hopes of getting a finals series played.
While the Riverina will come out of lockdown on Saturday, community sport remains restricted.
Group Nine chairman Andrew Hinchcliffe is looking for further feedback.
"We are waiting for further advice to see how the news released today applies to community sport," Hinchcliffe said.
"We're understanding that the high-level guidance is that community sport won't be progressing until the double vaccination rates have been put in place.
"However we are looking to see if there is any leeway to that initial precaution in regards to ticket sales."
Group Nine have been the most willing of the competitions to extend their season in the hopes of being able to hold a finals series.
There were options to push the grand final back as far as October 30 on the cards.
However with the timeline for the double vaccination rate to hit 80 per cent after that the situation isn't looking promising.
"It is looking doubtful but we just need to wait for all the details to flow through," Hinchcliffe said.
"I'm sure NSW Rugby League will be working hard in the background to provide that in the coming days."
There are provisions for major outdoor recreation facilities, including stadiums and racecourses, to open under the one person per four square metre guidelines for up to 5000 people.
There is also an allowance for ticketed and seated outdoor events up to 500 people.
Last year's Group Nine grand final was pre-ticketed after qualifying for a stadium exemption.
However community sport was also permissible last year.
It is one area Hinchcliffe is looking to clarify.
Young coach Nick Hall, who is also a Group Nine member, would like some sort of closure to the season.
"It's a step in the right direction having something open up as far communities and hopefully some common sense prevails and the next thing is community sport," Hall said.

"If we have a good, tight system along the lines of what we had last year then we can get to finish our football."
The Cherrypickers aren't well off with only some local government areas coming out of lockdown on Saturday.
They face not having six regular first graders unable to play as the landscape currently stands.
