For Members - Symptom Self-Assessment Questionnaire

Friday, 29 October 2021

Dogs Victoria requires attendees to do a symptom self-assessment prior to leaving home when attending a Dogs Victoria event. We ask attendees to not attend a Dogs Victoria event or venue if they are unwell or have been instructed to isolate or quarantine.

Any attendees who answer YES to any of the questions, should not enter a Dogs Victoria event or grounds. We encourage you to go home and get tested for coronavirus (COVID-19) to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our members, staff and affiliates.
The Covid marshals and staff will ask if you have conducted this self-assessment questionnaire upon entry to any events or venues.
Please remember to maintain at least 1.5m physical distance between you and others, as well as wear a face mask where required and observe cough etiquette and personal hygiene measures.

Please find a copy of the questionnaire here

An Update on Covid-19 Restrictions & Requirements From Dogs Victoria's Chief Executive - 19 November 2021

Victoria has eased restrictions effective from 11.59pm 18 November 2021 as we reach Phase D; 90% of 12+ yrs fully vaccinated. For a Dogs Victoria summary of this phase, please refer to the Dogs Victoria roadmap here.

What does this mean for Dogs Victoria?

  • As mandated by the Victoria and federal government roadmap, Dogs Victoria will require for all attendees 12yrs + proof of double dose Covid-19 vaccination status or an approved medical exemption in order to attend its events/venues.
  • Shows, trials, training and other events can proceed for fully vaccinated or medically exempt people only.
  • Venues can operate at maximum capacity subject to vaccination requirements and Covid-19 safe measures.
  • Events may proceed with no attendee caps or density limits for the fully vaccinated.
  • There are no limits to number of people who can gather in the home and outdoors.
  • Masks are required indoors only in limited settings including retail, health care, aged care and justice facilities, at primary schools and on public transport, taxis and rideshare. The state government recommends wearing a mask if you can’t physically distance, if you have any symptoms, or if you are with people who may be vulnerable to COVID-19. 
  • QR code check in is mandatory with proof of double vaccination or medical exemption (Covid-19 marshalls assist those without QR code check in capability)
