Common sense prevails

If you live in the cross-border community – and you haven’t left the cross-border area or you haven’t been in an Extreme Risk Zone any time in the previous 14 days – you can now cross the border and enter Victoria without a permit for any reason.

The Victorian Chief Health Officer declared on Sunday that 66 Local Government Areas in NSW will move from an Extreme Risk Zone to a Red Zone under Victoria’s travel permit system. This includes all LGAs on the NSW-Victorian border– except for Albury, which is currently in lockdown. Edward River Council, which includes Deniliquin, has also been reinstated in the bubble. Yarrawonga based golfers resumed at Yarrawonga Mulwala Golf Club Resort on Monday and Tuesday’s competitio­n was nearly booked out while Saturday’s competitio­n is fully booked.

The resort’s clubhouse re-opened on Tuesday after being closed for just over five weeks since NSW was forced into lockdown on August 14.

“Yes, we’re back to opening up today,” club CEO Peter Savy said on Tuesday.

“Golf has now resumed for border bubble residents. The bistro will open again this Friday, and Saturday. We’ve got to get stock in and it’s a weekly basis as we go. We don’t want to order too much.

“Accommodat­ion is just starting to pick up again. We’re hoping to get accommodat­ion bookings for those who are able to holiday here.”

ClubMulwal­a also welcomed back border bubble Victorians and CEO Alan Rowe was happy to report that 200 people dined in the bistro.

“It was great to see so many people back having, and enjoying their meal,” he said.
