Share this article

Dear Clubs, Players, Coaches, Referees and Parents,

Nunawading Basketball continues to monitor the situation with regard to COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and is taking steps to protect members, employees and guests against the spread of the virus in accordance with the guidelines provided by the Department of Health. We therefore ask you to ensure that you comply with the guidelines issued by our Health Authorities in order to protect our basketball and wider community and limit the spread of this virus.

If you have recently travelled from, or transited through a designated country**, or have been in contact with anyone confirmed to have contracted the Coronavirus, or with anyone suspected of having such symptoms in the last 14 days, you will be required to undertake a period of self-isolation (quarantine) for 14 days. If this condition applies to you, or anyone you know, you are requested to not attend any Nunawading Basketball Venue, Club Training Venue and (for any Nunawading Spectres) any other VJBL venue in any capacity (even as a spectator) until the applicable quarantine period has expired.

**Currently, designated countries include the People’s Republic of China, Iran, Italy  and the Republic of Korea (South Korea). Other countries may be added in future days and weeks.

If you or anyone you know present symptoms similar to that of coronavirus, you are requested to exercise common sense and consider not attending any Nunawading Basketball Venue, Club Training Venue and (for any Nunawading Spectres) any other VJBL venue in any capacity (even as a spectator) until the symptoms have passed. 

Given the uncertainty of the situation evolving in Melbourne, we would ask that all parents exercise common sense and your own best judgement. Please be especially mindful if you or your child/ren attend a school with a known outbreak.

At this point in time all MEBA/GEBC Junior and Senior Domestic matches will be proceeding as scheduled.

For Nunawading Spectres players, coaches and parents, at this point in time VJBL matches are proceeding as scheduled and we will be guided by Basketball Victoria and the VJBL if anything changes.

We ask for your absolute cooperation in adhering to these guidelines for the benefit of your fellow basketball members.

We will continue to update you as the situation evolves.

Sincerely,

Mark Hallett

Chief Executive Officer

Nunawading Basketball
