COVID-19 A MESSAGE TO OUR CLUBS, COACHES AND RIDERS | MOTORCYCLING VICTORIA

113

As the status of COVID-19 (commonly known as Coronavirus) changes rapidly each day, we want to take this opportunity to reassure our community. Although we have had to cancelled or postponed some of the large scale State events, this has only been done with the best interest of the community in mind, in line with Government guidelines and advice.

For the events that have been postponed the committees are working hard to have new dates announced as soon as possible.

 

What does this mean for Club and Coaching Activity?

For now, it can be business as usual.  The Motorcycling Victoria team are here, in the background, to support anyone wishing to continue to operate, in line with the Government restrictions and guidelines.

The organisers (clubs or coaches) have our full support either way.

To keep up to date on the activity across the state, visit the MV Calendar on our website:

This includes keeping in mind that being an organised outdoor activity we must be sure to limit the number of people to below the maximum 500, and ensure we are supplying the basic tools to maximise hygiene (i.e. Running water, soap, toilet paper, hand sanitiser, etc).

And finally, we all must do our best to encourage everyone to take accountability for their own health and that if anyone does not feel well to stay home.

A FINAL NOTE:

We must clearly communicate to you that the situation is changing daily and that we must all work together where possible. If you have any questions we encourage to you call us and discuss.

We want to encourage you to keep up to date on COVID-19 where possible directly from the Government agencies putting in place the measures to protect us all.
