SNV is aware of concerns regarding the spread of the Novel Coronavirus.

We appreciate that there may be players who have travelled or are travelling within China and Hong Kong over the holiday period. As a precautionary measure to protect our community we will follow the advice from NSW Department of Health and Education at the request of our playing venues:

• If you or any family member have recently visited China including Hong Kong, could you please wait 14 days from the date of your return to Australia before playing, and are free of flu like symptoms
• If you have not visited China or Hong Kong in the last 14 days, but have any flu-like symptoms please wait until your symptoms have cleared before playing. Please seek medical advice as required.
• Of course, if you have had direct contact with a confirmed case you should also remain in isolation for the 14 day incubation period and return only if you are symptom free and cleared by a doctor

If you would like further information regarding Coronavirus, please visit the NSW Health website which provides regular updates.…/novel-coronavirus-2019-ncov…/alerts/Pages/coronavirus-fa…

If this advice will leave your team short of players please get in touch and we will do our best to help you find temporary replacements. If this advice means you are unable to attend rep trials or social training please get in touch.

Thank you for your understanding and consideration.
