PCV COVID-19 UPDATE | 20 MARCH 2020 - Pony Club camps & PCVEC Open Week
Pony Club Victoria is closely monitoring the situation with respect to COVID-19 and working to support the measures implemented by the government and health authorities to keep the community healthy.
We wish to stress the importance of members, zones, clubs and event officials listening to the directives from government and health authorities who are best placed to implement measures to manage this current public health concern of COVID-19.
“Social distancing” is the term given to reducing social contact with others. It is one of the strategies being used to reduce the spread of COVID-19 in the community.
With social distancing in mind Pony Club Victoria have notified zones and clubs that camps should be postponed or cancelled or if conducted should not include overnight stay(s) until further notice.
In line with this policy the PCVEC Open Week has been cancelled, we wish to thank the the many clubs who had booked camps at the centre in April.
Whilst we do need to cancel the camps during PCVEC Open Week, we can advise that in line with government policy the centre will be available for day use for clubs to use at any time, and on any day, for free.
This will continue for as long as the State of Emergency is in place. We understand some clubs are experiencing local council closures of their venues, and this may present an option to continue rallies at this time.
For other clubs it may be a way to provide members with ‘something different’. It’s up to clubs how they wish to use their time at PCVEC and can be used as often as the club wishes. Simply contact Tony at PCVEC to book in.
The September PCVEC Open Week will remain under review.
