A pet banfemist banfield in south-west Victoria has been temporarily closed.
The banfield is located on the north side of the riverbank in a park and is the only area in Victoria where people can go for pet walks.
The pet banfields in Petaling Street, Petaling Park and the banfield on the west side of Melbourne have been closed temporarily due to the coronavirus pandemic.
“This is a very isolated location and we have seen no new cases of coronaviruses at the site,” Mr Sagan said.
“We have been monitoring the site closely and it’s just too early to tell whether or not this is the case.”
It’s very much possible that a small number of cases are the result of exposure or other unknown factors, so we will have to wait and see.
“The banfields have been in operation for more than 100 years, and the park is known for its wildlife and community events.
Mr Sagan says the banfields are a good place to go for a short walk to check on an injured or sick pet.”
They’re a very safe place for pets to be,” he said.
The state government has said it will take steps to remove all the banned animals from the banfems by June 30, with the majority of the remaining animals moved to another area of the banfalls.
