July 2020: COVID-19 Updates
Communication sent on 7 July
Today, the Victorian government announced a return to Stage 3 restrictions across metropolitan Melbourne and some other areas of Victoria. This is due to the increase in coronavirus infection rates.
Unfortunately, Melbourne metropolitan gymnastics clubs are affected and will be required to close their doors from 11.59pm tomorrow.
Community sport is one of the activities that must remain on Stage 3 restrictions until 19 August.
You can access today’s announcement here.
We understand that this next round of restrictions will be very difficult to bear.
The Premiers announcement references dedicated support for businesses in areas who were previously eligible for a Business Support Fund grant or a payroll tax refund.
As more information becomes available, we will let clubs know and remain active in our support.
We understand that this is incredibly hard for these clubs and the communication to athletes, families and coaches, and appreciate the impact this is having on the gymnastics community.
The health and well-being of the entire gymnastics community is at the forefront of our minds as we head into some more challenging times.
Please do not hesitate to get in touch with our team for support, and we will of course keep you updated as more information and changes occur.
