Baseball Victoria continues to closely monitor the COVID-19 outbreak and awaits further updates from the Victorian Government regarding the seven-day circuit breaker lockdown, currently scheduled to expire at 11:59pm on Thursday 3 June 2021, although an extension has not been ruled out.
With all baseball activity cancelled to comply with the lockdown, we will provide relevant updates in the coming days based on the latest developments in the evolving COVID situation across Victoria.
Victoria recorded an additional three locally acquired cases today, bringing the outbreak total to 54. There are now more than 300 COVID-19 exposure sites where Victorians could have come into contact with the virus. It’s extremely important for everyone to check this list of exposure sites, which is regularly updated by the Victorian Government, and follow these instructions:
- Anyone who has visited a Tier 1 exposure site during the times listed must immediately isolate, get a coronavirus (COVID-19) test, and quarantine for 14 days from the date of exposure.
- Anyone who has visited a Tier 2 exposure site during times listed should urgently get a test and isolate until they receive a negative result.
- Anyone who has visited a Tier 3 exposure site during times listed should monitor for symptoms - If symptoms develop, immediately get tested and isolate until you receive a negative result.
If you have been to an exposure site, are a close contact of a confirmed case, or exhibit any symptoms of COVID-19 – such as fever, cough, sore throat, runny nose, chills or sweats, or change in sense of smell or taste – get a test immediately. Find out where to get tested HERE.
In addition to COVID testing, Victoria has also taken promising steps to increase the number of daily vaccinations and ensure all Victorians who are eligible get protected as soon as possible.
The Victorian vaccination program is now open to all Victorians over the age of 40 as well as select priority groups.
Getting vaccinated helps protect you from getting sick with COVID-19. The vaccines being used in Australia are safe, free, and very effective at preventing serious illness and loss of life from COVID-19.

As the vaccine rollout continues, it remains important to stay safe by washing your hands regularly, wearing a face mask, coughing and sneezing into your elbow, and keeping at least 1.5 metres from others. If you have any symptoms of COVID-19, no matter how mild, you must get tested and stay home.
