COVID RESPONSE

LDTR's FFLL Covid Safe Plan.

FFLL can present as a high risk for coronavirus (COVID-19) transmission, with many people moving around and interacting with each other. FFLL will be managed in line with COVIDSafe principles to reduce the risk of COVID-19.

 

All riders and spectators MUST sign in upon arrival, giving their name, phone number and email address. Failure to do so will result in entry being denied. In the event of COVID-19 being transmitted at FFLL, this will assist the VIC Gov with contact tracing. 

ALL riders and spectators MUST abide by the latest public health advice at all times during FFLL.

 

Absolutely no sharing of food or beverages outside of your immediate family members.

 

No handling any bikes other than your own.

Where a rider has been instructed to quarantine by the Department of Health, or they feel unwell or experiencing any symptoms of COVD-19, LDTR will provide a full refund of the rego fee.

Riders and spectators are NOT permitted to be at the event if they have been instructed to quarantine by the Department of Health, or if they are unwell or experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19.
