VBSA News

COVID Update 1/9/21

Dear Members,

The Victorian Government has announced that the state-wide lockdown will be extended due to the level of community transmission of COVID-19 and the number of unlinked cases.

Almost all of the current restrictions will remain in place until 70 per cent of Victorians have had at least one dose of vaccine. This is estimated to be around 23 September.   

Until then, there are still only five reasons to leave home: shopping for food and supplies, authorised work and study, care and caregiving, exercise, and getting vaccinated. Other restrictions – including wearing face masks – will stay the same. Full announcement ca be found here

In the mean time we can all do our bit to speed up the process by getting vaccinated. Vaccines save lives and they are the pathway to getting our lives back to normal. If you have any COVID symptoms please go and get tested straight away (don't wait). 

You can book your vaccinations at www.coronavirus.vic.gov.au/book-your-vaccine-appointment 

 

Your fully vaccinated Secretary

Regards

Jon Moss

VBSA Secretary

Vale John Williams

The VBSA is saddened to advise the passing of John Williams, Life Member of the Australian Billiards & Snooker Council (ABSC).

John had been the Tasmanian Billiards & Snooker Association President for 19 years, and was a long-time Executive member and Delegate (Tasmania), of the ABSC. He has been a constant presence at so many events for Victoria and Tasmania, and a “terrific friend of the VBSA”.

John, who turned 90 years of age in March this year, is survived by his wife Rhona, son Rodney and daughter Vicky and three grandchildren.

Condolences are offered to John’s family and friends.

RIP John Williams.
