Covid Update - 15 July 2021

As you will all be aware by now, The State of Victoria has been placed into a 5-day snap lockdown until Wednesday 21st July 2021.

Premier Daniel Andrews announced the 5-day lockdown today which will follow the same restrictions that were put in place with the last snap lockdown in June and is effective as of 11:59pm tonight.

Victoria will be placed in Stage 4 restrictions as follows.

There are only 5 permitted reasons to leave the home:

  1. Shopping for necessary goods and services within 5 km of home, unless the nearest shops are further-one household member per day.
  2. To get vaccinated.
  3. Caregiving and compassionate reasons. This includes, as for past lockdowns, the care of your horse under animal welfare grounds.
  4. Authorised work or permitted education (which has seen some industries added to the authorised list).
  5. Exercising for 2 hours per day outside of the home (with household member, intimate partner or one other person who is not from a persons household or their intimate partner).

The full Table of Restrictions can be read following this link:

Over the ensuing 5 days, we will continue to monitor the situation with regard to the lockdown and will keep you up to date when further information comes to hand via our website and social media posts.

On behalf of the Board and staff of Equestrian Victoria, I wish you all the best during this snap lockdown. Please stay safe and take care of your loved ones.
