Following the Victorian Government’s announcements today, Baseball Victoria is planning for the further easing of restrictions in metropolitan Melbourne from 11:59pm on Thursday 24 June 2021.
The upcoming changes to restrictions from 11:59pm tomorrow include:
- Players, parents, and spectators can attend outdoor community sport within the total cap of 1,000 people.
- Private visitors to the home increase to 15 and up to 50 people can gather outside in a public place like a park.
- Density limits increased in public settings including workplaces and restaurants, with masks still required indoors.
Community sport remains open for all ages both training and competition, within venue limits and subject to all COVIDSafe settings.
The Victorian Government has provided this Table of Restrictions from 11:59pm on Thursday 24 June 2021 which defines the changes for regional Victoria and metropolitan Melbourne.
Baseball Victoria will provide further details to winter associations regarding our continued return to training and play, including an updated COVIDSafe Plan.
“It’s great to see the further easing of restrictions in Victoria following the efforts of everyone across the state to protect the community and stop the spread,” Baseball Victoria CEO Kristie Middleton said. “We remain committed to participant safety and will continue working with the Victorian Government and our stakeholders to ensure a safe return to activity and play for our baseballers.”

All Victorians should monitor for symptoms, get tested, and get vaccinated when eligible.
To stop the spread and help us stay open, everyone should 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.
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.

While Victoria continues to vaccinate the population, you can 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.
