Following the Victorian Government’s announcements on new COVID cases in the community, Baseball Victoria has sought clarification on the continuation of community sport, which at this stage appears able to proceed with the addition of masks indoors.
As we await confirmation on any impacts to community sport, training sessions scheduled for tonight, Tuesday 25 May 2021, may proceed. These training sessions must adhere to the updated guidelines – including wearing masks indoors at all times.
We expect clarification on playing games and training for the rest of the restriction period to be provided tomorrow, Wednesday, 26 May 2021 and we will continue to share updates via the Baseball Victoria website and social media channels.
The new restrictions for Greater Metropolitan Melbourne from 6:00pm on Tuesday 25 May 2021 are:
- Face masks – compulsory indoors at all times for anyone aged 12 years and older unless you have an exemption.
- Gatherings - no more than 5 visitors to a home per day and no more than 30 people at public gatherings.
- Schools/workplaces remain open and anyone from Greater Metropolitan Melbourne can travel to regional Victoria but the Melbourne restrictions will apply during your travels.
These measures will be in place until at least Friday 4 June 2021.
