1. Can pony clubs use their club rooms?
Club rooms will open when the hospitality industry is permitted to have customers seated indoors. Clubs will need to follow the same density quota’s given to that industry and any other rules pertaining to it such as face coverings.
2. Members who live in NSW/VIC border bubble – can they come into Victoria and attend their pony club for training?
All NSW Local Government Areas in the cross-border community (except City of Albury) change from Extreme Risk Zones to Red Zones at 11:59pm on 19 September.
If you live in the cross-border community – and you haven’t left the cross-border area or you haven’t been in an Extreme Risk Zone any time in the previous 14 days – you can cross the border and enter Victoria without a permit for any reason. This includes to attend your pony club for training.
People who have been in a current Extreme Risk Zone – such as Albury – in the previous 14 days are still required to obtain a Cross-Border Community – Extreme Risk Zone permit and travel only for permitted reasons should they wish to enter or re-enter Victoria. Limited exemptions and exceptions, and other valid permits, apply.
