Track goers required to wear face masks at all times

GRV encourages anyone feeling unwell not to attend racetracks or other greyhound facilities.

Following a significant increase in COVID-19 cases across Victoria over the past few days, to reduce the COVID-19 risk and ensure the ongoing continuity of our race program, GRV has adopted the following protocols to come into effect from 6 January 2022:

– Temperature Testing to be reintroduced at race meetings
– QR Code scanning continues
– The wearing of face masks is again mandatory at all Victorian greyhound racing clubs at all times, inside and outside, including trial sessions
– Social distancing of at least 1.5 metres, including outdoors

GRV also encourages regular sanitizing, and extends a sincere thanks to all participants, employees and volunteers for allowing us to maintain a safe work environment.
