CORONAVIRUS UPDATE

As a club, Avalon considers the welfare of its members as the number one priority.  As we approach the start of the season, we are monitoring the ongoing situation with the COVID-19 outbreak closely, and implementing the recommended MWFA and Football NSW guidelines.

We encourage any members who feel unwell or have unwell family members to inform their coaches/managers and miss any scheduled training or games. Similarly we ask any coaches and managers who are unwell to stay away from any planned team activities.  And we ask everyone to follow NSW government health advice on hand washing and close contact with others.

Here is the latest advice from FNSW.

FFA has recently issued a Circular in relation to the coronavirus, please click the following link for more information – FFA Circular – Coronavirus (COVID 19) – click here.

FFA is recommending that all participants follow the Australian Government’s guidelines as to how to reduce the risk of getting coronavirus.

All participants are encouraged to use thorough handwashing techniques and anti-bacterial hand gels – please refer to this link for more details: www.who.int/gpsc/clean_hands_protection/en/.

FFA is also recommending that participants reassess how they greet people on a day-to-day basis and how they can minimise contact with other participants in and around the football field.

FFA and Football NSW continue to monitor the situation and will provide further information as it becomes available.
