Following the announcement made by Western Australia Premier Mark McGowan this afternoon, Baseball WA confirms the cancellation of all baseball games from 3:00 PM on Sunday, 31 January 2021 onward. All baseball activity for the next five days has been cancelled to comply with the lockdown of the Perth metropolitan area and the Peel and South West regions, which is set to expire at 6:00 PM on Friday, 5 February 2021.
According to the WA Government, these measures are based on health advice and have been implemented due to a fast evolving situation in Western Australia with the positive COVID-19 case detected in a hotel quarantine worker.
The WA Government has declared a State of Emergency for Western Australia.
Baseball WA is working with clubs and stakeholders to ensure all the proper safety measures and procedures are put in place and followed throughout this lockdown period as well as during our return to play once the lockdown has lifted.
“Thank you to our clubs and members for their understanding and patience during this rapidly-evolving situation,” Baseball WA CEO Lachlan Dale said. “This is an important reminder that this virus is still a serious concern and we must remain vigilant. Let’s all do our part this week so we can look forward to getting back on the field soon.”
