—— Forwarded Message from President ——
As you are no doubt aware, the Victorian Government has announced a 7 day lockdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic effective 11.59pm tonight. In line with Government restrictions, all Clubs should cease in-person training until the lockdown has been lifted and guidelines permit a return to training.
The VKR would also recommend that any Club training scheduled for Thursday evening (27 May 2021) be cancelled.
Given the uncertainty and risks, the VKR Monthly training scheduled for Friday 4 June 2021 is cancelled.
The VKR community has been fortunate enough that we have been able to resume training since the last lockdown, but the recent events highlight that the virus is still with us. Therefore we need to remain vigilant and ensure we are all following our COVID-safe plans.
We would encourage all clubs to take this time to review their COVID-safe plans and procedures and ensure they are up to date prior to the resumption of training. In particular, a reminder that the Government QR Check-in Code is mandatory for all clubs.
The VKR will provide further guidelines regarding the resumption of training once known.
Finally, please follow Government health advice and get tested where required. Also, note that vaccine eligibility has now been expanded to include those over 40 years old. To book a vaccine appointment, you can go here: https://www.coronavirus.vic.gov.au/book-your-vaccine-appointment
Take care and stay safe.
