DVUSC would like to issue an update on the ongoing situation involving COVID-19.

We understand the situation involving COVID-19 is constantly evolving day-by-day and we want to keep you informed about how DVUSC is handling the situation.

The DVUSC Committee are monitoring advice issued from the Department of Health­, Department of Health and Human Services (VIC), World Health Organisation, Football Victoria and other stakeholders to ensure that appropriate measures are in place to protect the health and wellbeing of our coaches, players, families, volunteers and supporters.

We have already had some cancellations of junior practice games over this weekend and ask DVUSC families to keep a close eye on TeamSnap to ensure that you are aware of the latest developments.

The Committee further advises that at this stage we are not cancelling training sessions next week however should coaches feel it necessary to cancel a session, the coach does so with the full support of the DVUSC Committee and furthermore, the DVUSC Committee reserves the right to make decisions which may affect training and matches if deemed necessary. Again, any decisions will be communicated through TeamSnap.

We are asking the DVUSC Community to follow the appropriate advice if they are unwell or at risk.

In the event of illness

  • If you feel unwell or are experiencing any symptoms, please do not attend training (let your Coach and Team Manager know – Please use TeamSnap).
  • Please take the time to fully recover before returning.
  • If you have been in contact with someone who has been diagnosed with, or tested positive for, COVID-19 please follow the isolation advice, and inform your Coach or Team Manager who will inform the Club.
  • If required, call your GP, attend an emergency department or contact Health Direct on 1800 022 222. Additional information is also available on the Department of Health website (https://www.health.gov.au/)

Hygiene

  • Do not share water bottles
  • Practice enhanced hygiene; wash your hands often, use an alcohol-based hand sanitiser if soap and water are not available
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands
  • Cough or sneeze into your elbow to avoid transmitting any droplets

Keeping our community healthy over the next few months is the aim. If in any doubt, please err on the side of caution as much as possible.

Thank you all for your cooperation and support. We appreciate your patience around this unique situation and your ongoing support for the club.
