All greyhound race tracks will require patrons whether at trials or race days to wear masks at all times effective from today for the foreseeable future.
In a short annoucnement today Greyhound Racing Victoria said that they have found it necessary to implement the new measures”following a significant increase in COVID-19 cases across Victoria over the past few days”.
To reduce the COVID-19 risk and ensure the ongoing continuity of our race program, GRV has adopted the following protocols to come into effect from 6 January 2022:
- Temperature Testing to be reintroduced at race meetings
- QR Code scanning continues
- The wearing of face masks is again mandatory at all Victorian greyhound racing clubs at all times, inside and outside, including trial sessions
- Social distancing of at least 1.5 metres, including outdoors
GRV also encourages regular sanitizing, and extends a sincere thanks to all participants, employees and volunteers for allowing us to maintain a safe work environment.
GRV encourages anyone feeling unwell not to attend racetracks or other greyhound facilities.
