Racing Victoria mandates COVID-19 vaccine for all staff

The Victorian racing industry will mandate vaccinations against COVID-19 for all staff and people involved with horse racing by the end of November.

Racing Victoria CEO Giles Thompson said the rule would not affect race spectators yet, but it needed to prepare the industry for when people were allowed back to watch horseracing.
