Update from the Vice President and Committee - 14th May 2020
COVID19 RESTRICTIONS: Where are we now?
These are the current facts regarding Coronavirus restrictions.
As of 11.59pm on Tuesday 12 May the Victorian Government has amended the Coronavirus restrictions. These new restrictions and a renewed State of Emergency will be in place until 11:59pm on Sunday 31 May.
From the Victorian Government website:
Statement from the Premier
From 11:59pm this Tuesday night, there’s now a fifth reason to leave home: visiting friends and family – with a maximum gathering of up to ten outdoors and having up to five visitors in your home.
Travel within Victoria
Victorians shouldn’t be taking holidays currently, even within Victoria. You can go for a drive, but you are encouraged to stay local, and only go to places where you can drive there and back within one day. You can still book accommodation if there is an essential need.
Can I go camping?
Camping remains prohibited.
What this means for us:
No general Meeting in May.
The Committee has agreed that no official Club trips will be run in May and not before the next announcement by the Victorian Government.
Decisions on Moonambel and the snow trips are still dependent on further advice from the State Government.
What happens then?
Daniel Andrews has indicated that the Victorian Government may further ease restrictions in line with the Federal Governments “3 step framework for a COVID safe Australia”. We are hopeful that this will see us back on the tracks but at this stage we will all need to wait.
Stay well. Geoff Davey (Vice President) on behalf of the Committee.
