COVID-19 Update (Wednesday, 17th February 2021)

Racing NSW, in accordance with its expert advice, had previously imposed restrictions on persons attending NSW racecourses and licensed premises in light of the Victorian Government’s lockdown orders effective from 12:01am 13 February 2021 and the NSW Government replication of those lockdown orders for persons that had travelled to Victoria on or since 29 January 2021.

As those Government restrictions cease at midnight tonight 17 February 2021, Racing NSW lifts the directions that applied generally in respect of persons that had been in Victoria on or since 29 January 2021 and advises that there is no requirement to self-isolate or get tested on return to NSW, other than for those persons who have attended Victorian exposure sites during the relevant periods detailed.

Persons are still required to comply with Racing NSW’s directions in respect of specific hotspots or exposure sights identified by the relevant Government authorities (see link below), including the obligation to report any such attendance to the Racing NSW Stewards.

Victorian Exposure Sites

NSW Hotspots

Important warning:

 In light of the recent lockdown in Victoria as a result of community transmissions of COVID-19 and the warnings from the Victorian Government that thousands of people have still potentially been exposed to infectious cases, caution should be exercised in considering whether to travel to Victoria and, in particular, the Greater Melbourne area.

 In the event that community transmissions again become an issue in Victoria, persons that have travelled there may again find themselves restricted from being permitted to attend NSW racecourses and licensed premises.
