DOGS Victoria Announcement about the Corona Virus (COVID-19) pandemic

13-03-2020

In ensuring our members are kept up to date we would like to provide the below update in relation to the Corona Virus (COVID-19) pandemic. DOGS Victoria is aware of the Corona Virus pandemic which is causing serious consequences in daily lives and serious damage worldwide.

ATTENTION:  Affiliates, Judges, Exhibitors

Everyone who takes part in DOGS Victoria are advised to frequently wash their hand with disinfectant, preferably provided by the Club conducting the event.  The usual interpersonal body contacts, such as shaking hands and any other superficial contact between competitors, exhibitors and Judges, must be avoided and should not be taken as an unfriendly attitude.

DOGS Victoria’s Insurance Broker has advised that no loss of income/cancellation expenses will be covered in respect of the Coronavirus for shows/events.

ATTENTION:  Judges

DOGS Victoria also recommends that Judges should not check the teeth of the dogs by themselves, but instead ask exhibitors for their help.  Judges are also advised to disinfect their hands more frequently.

ATTENTION:  All Members

DOGS Victoria does not plan any general action related to the Corona Virus as the handling of the current situation strictly depends on the local status.  Nevertheless, DOGS Victoria wishes to draw attention to the fact that the local authorities have the right and responsibility to implement local regulations related to public events, whenever needed.

 

To avoid any inconvenient situations, DOGS Victoria recommends to check the updated respective news sources, via the following links: -
