CPBL Hints to Reopen Doors to Public
The CPBL is about to take another step closer to letting fans into the stadiums. The league is set to meet on May 5 to review its current closed-door policy.
With the on-going hard work by the frontline healthcare workers, Taiwan has successfully managed to contain the spread of the coronavirus.
On May 1, Taiwan’s CDC reported another day of zero new coronavirus cases, extending the country’s zero cases streak to the sixth day in a row. Based on the CDC’s data, the last domestic case was back on April 12.
In the interview with ETtoday, the CPBL secretary-general hinted the league has started working on a proposal for the CDC. At this stage, they are aiming at between 200 to 250 fans per game. The league will hold a team owners’ meeting to discuss this matter on May 5.
As of May 1, there have been 429 confirmed cases with six death and 324 recovered in Taiwan.
Update: May 2
Taiwan CDC has approved the CPBL’s proposal to reopen its games to public. At this stage, the CDC will set a 250 fans limit per game but will gradually increase that number.
Seems reasonable. Maybe they can have 1000 per game by Taiwan Series…
I think just step by step. Right now the CDC guideline is at 500 people for outdoor events.
