No ease up of Community Sport COVID Regulations
Victoria’s Chief Health Officer has though declared that almost all of the current lockdown restrictions will remain in place until 70 per cent of Victorians have had at least one dose of vaccine. This is estimated to be around 23 September. An update on club field and social activities will be published at the end of the month.
In the meantime please get vaccinated and keep in touch with your team mates – your team volunteers would also love to hear from you. Please remember:
WE’RE NOT SAFE UNTIL WE’RE ALL SAFE!
