Novel Coronavirus

Frankston Football Club is closely monitoring the evolving coronavirus situation. We understand the situation may be causing concern for some people.

As we move into 2020 we are working through with AFL VIC the implications of COVID-19 . On Saturday 21 March we play Port Melbourne in a practice match at 1pm at SkyBus Stadium and the present status is that the maximum number that can attend is 500 people in total including all Players and Officials . Please watch our website and social media for any further developments this week.

We take our lead from the local, State and Federal agencies in re-circulating the following advice on how best to keep our community safe.

The Department of Health and Human Services advises that the best prevention is to practice good hygiene including:

  • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze.
  • Throw your tissue in to a plastic-lined rubbish bin after use.
  • If you don’t have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your upper sleeve or elbow. Do not use your hands.
  • Wash your hands regularly with soap and water including after you cough or sneeze, before preparing or eating food and after going to the toilet.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth as germs spread this way.

If you have travelled to any of the at risk countries (China, Italy, South Korea, Cambodia, Japan, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Singapore, and Thailand) in the last 14 days or have been in close contact with someone who has the coronavirus disease and you begin to feel unwell, and develop a fever or shortness of breath, a cough or respiratory illness, call the call the dedicated hotline on 1800 675 398.

The Department of Health and Human Services also advises that everyone should think about how they will manage for the possibility of transmission of the infection in Victoria in the coming weeks or months. Make a plan on how you and your family (including pets) will manage if you needed to stay at home for 2 to 3 weeks.
