23rd March 2020
Volleyball Victoria continues to monitor advice from the Federal and State Governments as it relates to community sport and the risks posed by COVID-19.
As of 23 March, the Federal Government has advised that “all non-essential, organised indoor gatherings of 100 or more people should be cancelled”. ‘Social distancing’ will also be practised, people should maintain a physical healthy distance between each other of 1.5 metres.
In addition, the government has advised all indoor sports centres will be closed effective 12:00noon today and schools will be closed as of Tuesday, 24 March. We anticipate this will impact hirers of school facilities. More on this will follow this week.
