Key Messages for Coronavirus

The following is being passed on by the VBSA Board for the information of all VBSA members and Affiliates.  Further announcements may be made.  

I am writing to provide you with the up to date Victorian Government’s messaging on COVID-19. See attachment.

• Health authorities are continuing to closely monitor the situation following the outbreak of coronavirus disease (COVID-19).
• Currently there are no known transmissions of the infection in the community in Victoria. All known cases in Victoria are due to travel overseas or through a direct link with a traveller.
• At this point in time our advice around major events/sporting events/creative events and other public gatherings is that they can still go ahead, and people should go about their lives as normal.
• The Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) website includes the most accurate and up to date information regarding COVID-19. Please refer to this as the key resource.
• It would be timely to review and update your business continuity plans/pandemic plans. Refer to the national health sector policy document on emergency response (Australian Health Sector Emergency Response Plan For Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19)) which takes precedence over any existing agency plans, where there are inconsistencies.
• Where there are mass gatherings of people, the attached advice/messages have been approved by the DHHS and the Department of Jobs, Precincts and Regions (DJPR).
• Should there be specific issues that can’t be answered from the DHHS website material, particularly in the event of COVID-19 cases being identified in Victoria, then you may wish to contact Rob Holland, Director, Office of the Secretary, DJPR on 8392 8031 or rob.holland@djpr.vic.gov.au, for assistance with coordinating a response.

As you know, the situation is dynamic and we will update you as new information comes to hand.

Regards,

Peter Betson

Health Warning

Given the current concerns about the spread of Coronavirus, the VBSA Board wishes to bring to the attention of its members the following.

Handshaking is something we do in our sport every time we meet our opponents and typically at the start and end a match. One of the precautions advised by Federal and State Health Authorities is to avoid contact such as handshaking.

Therefore, and in the best interests of all, the Boards position is that handshaking is no longer recommended while this global threat looms over us.
