Statement from SMJFL Chief Executive Officer Sarah Loh
Following the Victorian Government’s briefing this afternoon, the league is providing the following information to its clubs. Effectively immediately, for the next seven days or until further notice, the league and its member clubs will:
Suspend all training and all other league programs; and
Suspend all matches and social gathering events.
If you are feeling unwell, you MUST stay home and get tested;
If you have been to the known exposure sites (listed below) you MUST stay home, self-isolate and get tested;
If you are knowingly exposed to the virus and are tested to be negative, you MUST still stay at home and self-isolate;
DO NOT visit family and friends if they are unwell; and
DO NOT visit family and friends if you are unwell OR know that you have been in contact with someone who has been unwell.
We understand the pressure the constantly evolving circumstances the ongoing pandemic places on the community, particularly to the league’s member clubs and their dedicated volunteers. However, as we have done before and continue to do, we must all work together to keep our community safe and mitigate the spread of COVID-19.
There are several new exposure sites. Please click here for the comprehensive list of exposure sites, exposure windows and necessary health advice. We ask Presidents to share this information with their members and implore them to follow relevant health advice.
