AIS update on the Victorian COVID-19 outbreak
Updated 14 July 2020
In order to help stop the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) the Victorian government has stipulated that from 11:59pm on 8 July, changed gathering limits apply to the Melbourne metropolitan area and the Shire of Mitchell.
Individuals who live in this area are only allowed to exercise outside with one other person, or members of their household. Community sporting activity in these areas return to Level A of the AIS Framework for the reboot of sport in a COVID-19 environment. There are no changes to restrictions for professional and high-performance sport under the latest Restricted Activity Directions.
Professional and high-performance athletes can continue training and competition throughout Victoria since it is their work, contingent on professional sporting organisations and facility operators having an up to date risk management plan in place. Directives on measures across greater Melbourne can be found on the Victorian Department of Health website.
High performance athletes and staff from Victoria wishing to train in another state or territory require an exemption to do so. Most States and Territories in Australia require that individuals from Victoria go into quarantine, at their own expense, for 14 days, before engaging in sporting activity.
