Coronavirus or COVID-19 is a respiratory (lung) illness which spreads through close contact with an infected person, mostly face-to-face or within a household. Close contact is defined as someone who has had at least 15 minutes of face to face contact with a confirmed case, or shared a close space for more than 2 hours with a confirmed case.

Monbulk Rangers asks that any players, parents or coaches who are unwell or have cold or flu-like symptoms DO NOT attend training, even if the illness doesn’t meet the criteria for COVID-19 testing.

If you’re showing symptoms that include fever, breathlessness, a cough, sore throat and tiredness, please seek medical attention and don’t return to the Club until you’ve recovered.

Practice good hygiene at the Club including washing hands thoroughly and using a water bottle rather than the water bubblers.

Anyone who has a confirmed case of COVID-19 or is a close contact of a confirmed case is asked to notify Monbulk Rangers immediately.
