Cricket continued, albeit with reduced numbers at games. Netball, Basketball and soccer continue. Aussie rules starts in March hopefully with crowds.JLP wrote: ↑Sat Feb 13, 2021 11:32 amIs other sport carrying on down under load? Here sport is carrying on, but without spectators.

I can see how and why they are allowing it to go ahead. Sponsors are very needy when the give millions of dollars to tournaments. It is not a very good look.MyHumanZoo wrote: ↑Fri Feb 12, 2021 9:26 pm
As I was watching, the tournament director said that the tennis players were the same as any other workers in the country, so they could go to their job (playing tennis). They do get paid for that, so I guess it is their employment. What made me laugh a bit was he said that any of the tournament workers that could work from home would do that. How do you work on a tennis tourney from home, lol? Ok....maybe somebody does something computer related, keeping statistics or something...but it just made me laugh that anyone working on a sporting event would do it from home.
Only 2 new cases today and all are linked to the hotel quarantine program.
