Victorian Government Restrictions - 17 February
The Victorian Premier has announced that the five-day Circuit Breaker Lockdown with Stage 4 restrictions will end at 11.59pm tonight, Wednesday 17 February.
This means that gymnastics clubs across Victoria can re-open from Thursday 18 February provided:
- A density quotient of 1 per 4sqm for each space, or
- Classes limited to 50 people (excluding anyone necessary for running the class).
- Record keeping is required and venues with capacity of greater than 500 patrons must publish a COVIDSafe Plan online.
- Face masks will once again need to be worn inside for anyone over the age of 12 years unless they are participating in exercise that leaves them out of breath or puffing. Coaches and other attendees in the gym may remove their face mask if they are communicating with a person who is deaf or hard of hearing or in situations where seeing the mouth is essential for communication. Some other exemptions to wearing face masks apply, you can view the Victorian Government’s information here.

This is great news for Gymnastics in Victoria and we look forward to seeing everyone back in action.
