“Victorians living in virus hotspots have to take the Victorian and NSW health orders seriously and should be very aware that NSW will impose penalties if they seek to leave hotspot suburbs to enter NSW,” NSW Health Minister Brad Hazzard.

The AFL is predicted to hunt an exemption from the NSW Government, po inting to their strict biosecurity measures already in place, to permit affected gamers to cross the border.

“Clearly, (all teams) will abide by the restrictions. The implications are being worked through at the moment,” McLachlan stated of the new protocols.

“We’ve acquired a fixture for this weekend. And we’ll look forward. The rolling fixture may be kind of day by day.

“We have gotten 118 video games to get away.

“We can compress, we will transfer, we will — if we have to — have a bye to reset. As we glance forward, I don’t suppose we have to do this, however we’ve acquired choices. That’s what that is about.

“We had an amazing run throughout the nation, we’re having a harder interval in Victoria for the time being.”
