Following the Victorian Government’s announcements today, Baseball Victoria is planning for the easing of lockdown restrictions in metropolitan Melbourne from 11:59pm on Thursday 10 June 2021.
A number of restrictions will remain in place, and Baseball Victoria is working to confirm how these changes will impact community sport in metropolitan Melbourne. Once lockdown is lifted in metropolitan Melbourne, the restrictions will be:
25km travel radius from place of primary residence, which means people in metropolitan Melbourne cannot travel to regional Victoria over the long weekend.
Masks must be worn indoors at all times and outdoors where 1.5 metres physical distancing cannot be maintained.
Density limits in public settings including workplaces and restaurants.
Community sport: training only, no competition permitted and 25km limit applies. Limited to the number required to participate in and facilitate activity.
In metropolitan Melbourne, participants will not be able to train if that training is conducted more than 25km from their primary residence. Each of the metropolitan winter associations will provide an update on their training recommencement.
In regional Victoria, community sport will be open for all ages both training and competition, without travel into metropolitan Melbourne and within venue caps.
The Victorian Government has provided this Table of Restrictions from 11:59pm on Thursday 10 June 2021 which defines the changes for regional Victoria and metropolitan Melbourne.
Baseball Victoria will provide further details to the winter associations as they are confirmed by the government regarding the limited return to training in metropolitan Melbourne and the return to training and play in regional Victoria.
