Please take time to read the following announcement as the rules and regulations are often difficult to understand when announced on Government Livestreams
As of Friday the 22nd the Hobie Fishing Series Rd1 Mallacoota was rescheduled till a later date in 2021. This was not an easy decision as we all want to get the series going again but public health and safety takes priority.
The Victorian Government made some changes to the border restrictions on Friday, though there was some easing for certain areas, the majority of the Sydney metropolitan region still remains an Orange Zone. Details on this are as follows or can be viewed on the Victorian Government site at – https://www.coronavirus.vic.gov.au/victorian-travel…
Greater Sydney zone changes
• Victoria’s Chief Health Officer has now declared that only one Local Government Area (LGA), in New South Wales – Cumberland Council – will remain as a red zone.
• If you have been in the LGA of Cumberland Council in the last 14 days (other than for transit) you cannot enter Victoria without an exemption, exception, Specified Worker Permit or Freight Worker Permit.
• From 6pm on Friday 22 January 2021, a person who has been in all other areas Blue Mountains, Wollongong and all of Greater Sydney – excluding Cumberland Council – can apply for an Orange Zone Permit and enter Victoria. To be eligible for an Orange Zone Permit the person must not been in any other currently listed red zone in the past 14 days and agree to the conditions of an Orange Zone Permit – self-quarantine, get a coronavirus (COVID-19) test within 72 hours and remain in self-quarantine until receiving a negative test result.
