SPECTATORS will now be permitted at senior cricket games, but there are check-in requirements to assist with COVID-19 contact tracing.
In its initial return-to-play guidelines last month Cricket Victoria stated no spectators would be allowed at senior games this season.
However, there has been an easing of that restriction, with CV this week releasing new guidelines in relation to spectators.
"In addition to the regulars (players, umpires, coaches, volunteers etc.), clubs should look to capture anyone who comes across to check the scorebook, buys something from the canteen," the guidelines state.
"Someone spending only 2-3 minutes in and around others may either pass on the virus or pick it up from others.
"It only takes 15-20 seconds to check-in and far better to catch as many as possible to maximise the chances of the contact tracing working."
Spectators won't be required to check-in:
* if a person or group fully stays on the other side of the ground by themselves;
* walks past to take a bit of interest whilst walking the dog, but stays away from others; or
* someone sits and watches for an hour or so from the car.
While at games spectators must maintain COVID-19 hygiene requirements such as wearing masks and social distancing and adhere to current government group size limits (10 per group for step three, 50 per group for final step).
