Important COVID-19 Update - Lockdown Orders
12 February 2021
Following the Victorian Government introducing lockdown orders effective 11:59pm tonight and the announcement of concerns in respect of the rapid spread of COVID-19 in Victoria, Racing NSW has taken expert advice in respect to attendance at NSW racecourses and licensed premises.
The NSW Government has ordered that any person who has entered NSW from Victoria since 29 January 2021 must comply with the Victorian lockdown orders and remain at their place of residence for 5 days effective 11:59pm 12 February 2021.
In light of those matters, Racing NSW directs that any person that has been in Victoria on or since 29 January 2021 must not, without the permission of Racing NSW, attend a NSW racecourse or licensed premises until further notice and must comply with the NSW Government orders.
The Balranald Race Meeting scheduled for tomorrow 13 February 2021 is postponed until further notice.
Other race meetings scheduled for tomorrow 13 February 2021 will proceed subject to the restrictions outlined above in respect of persons that have been in Victoria on or since 29 January 2021.
Racing NSW will review the position on Monday 15 February 2021 and provide a further update to the industry.
