CoronaVirus (Covid-19) Status

Updated: 30/07/2021

Restrictions Eased – Tuesday 27th July @11.59pm
As of tomorrow (Wednesday 28th July) restrictions across Victoria will be eased.
The most relevant differences for the paddling community will be the easing of travel restrictions and groups of ten being able to paddle together.
Community sport facilities will be allowed to open, with density limits of one person per 4 sq meters.   Formal training will be able to commence, in groups of ten.
We have been able to open up after lots of hard work and cooperation by the sporting communities.

The key ongoing requirements is that QR Code tracking to be used at all venues, clubs or events.   Clubs have done great work enabling the QR code tracking.  Keep up the good work!

Masks will be required indoors and outdoors [there will be clarification in the Restricted Activities Directions tomorrow regarding exercise and masks]
Once again I thank the club committees, disciplines and members for their ongoing perseverance and co operation.  Whilst our sport is impacted, we have many advantages for ongoing participation due to the small scale, outdoor environment in which we operate.
I hope this will give a lift to your spirits!  Enjoy getting out and look out for each other.
