Vic COVID Restrictions
Reading into the current restrictions and regulations for a small business owner is very difficult. In fact, it's like watching a really bad horror movie where you can tell exactly what's going to happen about five minutes before it actually happens.
Not only that, it has become so confusing that you might as well add comedy to the horror movie.
To say it's frustrating is an understatement.
Irrespective of your personal view regarding the restrictions, regulations and vaccinations, we are a small business that just wants to share our passion with the community. As such we will follow the rules and regulations as mandated by the Victorian government in order to ensure first and foremost the health and well being of our athletes and members. Secondly, to ensure that we can stay in business.
Please do not post on social media or share your opinion of how we are managing the current situation as it is very embarrassing and uncomfortable for both parties especially if you only follow the rhetoric on social media.
As you read on, all links to this literature are available by using your thumb.
The Roadmap to Deliver the National Plan sets out how we can safely reopen, while also supporting our health system to ensure Victorians can still get the healthcare they need, when they need it most.
The Roadmap has been developed based on expert modelling from the Burnet Institute and is set against COVID-19 thresholds including hospitalisation rates, and the vaccination targets already set out in the National Plan to transition Australia's National COVID-19 Response.

People who are considered fully vaccinated.
You are considered fully vaccinated against COVID-19 for the purposes of attending a venue if:
Getting asked about your vaccination status
People working at venues that are open for fully vaccinated people are required to check your vaccination status, which they will usually do on entry to the venue through the Service Victoria app.
If you are not fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and have been refused entry to a venue for this reason, please be aware that these workers are doing their job and following the laws in place in Victoria to keep you and others safe.
Any incidents of violent, abusive and aggressive behaviour towards workers - including damage to property - will not be tolerated.

Physical recreational facilities
Open – a density quotient does not apply.
A COVID Check-in Marshal must ensure patrons check-in via the Service Victoria app and that customers over 18 years show evidence of their vaccination status or valid medical exemption.
For more information regarding Physical Recreational Facilities can be read HERE.
As we are NOT a community sport all applicable rules and regulations dictate the manner in which we are available to the Vaccinated community.
I hope you enjoyed reading all this information as we have (not) and look forward to seeing you on the mat next.
