TEMPORARY CANCELLATION OF TRAINING
Today 15th March 2020, all available Committee, Instructors and other volunteers agreed to cease training at the Club, effective immediately, until at least the first Sunday in May.
This return date will be dependent upon WHO and Australian Heath guidelines.
WHAT IS HAPPENING?
The novel coronavirus (COVID-19) is an infectious virus, first discovered in Wuhan, China in late December 2019. It has now been declared a pandemic by the World Health Organisation (WHO).
Consequently, the WHO along with the Australian Department of Health have issued fact sheets and guidelines to curb the spreading of the virus.
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR THE CLUB?
The safety of our volunteers and members remain our top priority. Plans around pandemic preparedness have been implemented throughout the Club to ensure we minimise the spread as much as possible.
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR OUR MEMBERS?
We ask you to support efforts to minimise the spread of the virus, to mutually protect our volunteers, members and the wider community.
As per guidelines issued by the Department of Health, we encourage everyone to self-isolate for the recommended period of 14 days if you have been in contact with anyone suspected of or having a confirmed diagnosis of Covid 19.
We further request all members to continue to monitor the Australian Department of Health website for any updates to fact sheets and guidelines for employees, and to follow situation reports as issued by the World Health Organisation, to remain up to date on countries that have been infected.
At our Committee Meeting on 9th February 2020, it was decided that we will no longer field a flyball team nor run flyball training at Altona.
