It is with regret that we can now confirm that we have been directed to cease operating immediately. We have provided some detail relating to that direction below:
National Cabinet agreed to move to more widespread restrictions on social gatherings.
Premiers and Chief Ministers agreed to implement, through state and territory laws, new Stage 1 restrictions on social gatherings, to be reviewed on a monthly basis.
Australians should expect these measures to be in place for at least 6 months.
The following facilities will be restricted from opening from midday local time 23 March 2020:
* Pubs, registered and licenced clubs (excluding bottle shops attached to these venues), hotels (excluding accommodation)
* Gyms and indoor sporting venues
The Sporties will be closed to the public and will not be opening at 10am today.
The Cobram Barooga Golf Club and Sporties Health and Fitness will close to the public at 12.00pm
We are meeting at the moment to work our way through what this means and what we have to do next. As always the health, safety and security of our members, patrons and staff is our highest priority.
Like many organisations around the world, we are facing the most significant challenge to our operating future. Our focus through all of this will be doing everything to ensure we get through this and are able to re-establish ourselves once the effects of the pandemic are managed.
