MPCA COVID Update Jan 2021

MPCA COVID Update January 2021

The recent outbreaks in Victoria has shown that by following guidelines and restrictions in place any cases of COVID can be managed in a manner that avoids restrictions being reimposed that adversely impact our daily lives.  This outbreak shows that cases can spread far and wide from a single contact and can show up anywhere and at any time.  We can’t afford to be complacent because case numbers are low.

To play our part as the crick et community please find below an update/reminder regarding COVID requirements by all clubs and teams for our return to training and play this week.  The MPCA COVID Plan is attached if you wish to refresh your knowledge.  Don’t be the club or person that risks our whole competition by not following the guidelines!

  • QR CODES – Probably the single most important tool used to manage the current outbreak (the attendance records maintained by the restaurant, etc, enabled quick identification and quarantining)
    • The home club must ensure that all players, officials, parents, members and spectators sign in using the QR code or manually when in attendance at training or matches.
      • This includes all opposition players, officials, spectators and parents (reliance on teams sheet is not acceptable)
      • Any person in attendance at club facilities must sign in (this doesn’t include the person walking the dog on the opposite side of the ground, however, if they attend the facility to buy food/drink or watch they must sign in.
      • Utilise signage in high traffic or visibility areas to assist with compliance
    • All players must regularly sanitise their hands whilst training or in a match  (at least once at the half way mark of the innings)
    • The ball must be sanitised using a wipe/s at a minimum of once at the half way mark of each innings (20 overs for seniors)
    • High touch surfaces in and around the clubrooms, change rooms or other areas where groups gather need to be sanitised regularly
    • Only the umpire is to touch the stumps
    • The umpire does not touch the ball (but can having the fielding captain hold it to inspect it)
    • No person is to handle another person’s cap, glasses, jumper, etc.  They are to be placed behind the keeper, umpire or over the boundary by the owner of the items.
      • Don’t copy what you see in the Big Bash or international matches.  These players are in a bubble and not free to roam in the community like we are!
    • No sharing of food or drinks
    • COVID Stations set up
    • Hand Sanitiser accessible to all persons in attendance
    • Maintain social distancing of 1.5m
    • Place signage for indoor facilities up to indicate the maximum numbers in the various areas (changerooms, social rooms, bar, etc)
      • Enforce the maximum numbers
      • Maximum numbers are based on the government direction of 1 person per 2sqm if you use a QR code attendance system or 1 person per 4sqm if you do not use a QR code system.  Room capacity posters are available via this link – Room Capacity Poster
    • Social functions, dinners, etc, are permissible in compliance with Liquor licensing, room density and council requirements
    • MUST be worn indoors as per government restrictions reintroduced due to the recent outbreak unless eating or drinking.
      • Maintain social distancing when eating or drinking indoors
    • MUST be worn outdoors IF social distancing cannot be maintained


Any queries can be directed to the MPCA COVID Officer, Bob Hope.

Cancellation of MPCA Cricket Grand Finals

To all MPCA Clubs, Players, Administrators, Umpires and Supporters,


I wish to inform you that the MPCA Board has decided to cancel the 2019/2020 finals series which would have been run over this coming weekend.

We understand this is extremely disappointing for all clubs that have made it into the Finals after a long season.

It will also be disappointing to those clubs who have put their hands up to host the Finals at their grounds.

The decision has not been taken lightly and has been one of considerable discussion and angst for the Board.

This decision is in line with Cricket Victoria’s directive received today from Cricket Australia and Cricket Victoria (see the following Extract from the attachment),

“Cricket Australia, in consultation with its State and Territory Associations, has cancelled the Marsh Sheffield Shield final for 2019/20 and Cricket Victoria has taken the further step of cancelling all Premier Cricket finals from this week onwards.

We expect local community cricket and school competitions to take the same leadership position and cancel all cricket playing and training activity for the remainder of the 2019/20 season in response to this unprecedented global health issue.”


The MPCA Board feels that it must take the advice seriously in order to assist with COVID-19 (Corona Virus) risk mitigation measures and help protect not only all members in the MPCA but those in the wider community .

No decision has been made in regards to making a determination on the awarding of Premierships in all senior grades yet, the Board will be discussing this over the next few days and will convey that outcome at a later date.

The MPCA Board also makes a strong recommendation to all clubs to seriously consider postponing or cancelling any planned social events, including Junior and Senior Club Presentation Nights.

The  MPCA Board thanks you for your cooperation and



Stephen Morone







Cricket Victoria Advice on COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

UPDATE: COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Health and Hygiene guidelines for Victorian

To All Clubs, Players, and Volunteers
COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

As you will be aware, the World Health Organisation (WHO) has declared
COVID-19 Coronavirus at pandemic level internationally.
The information around this Virus in regards to its spread and how it is
impacting individuals is changing rapidly by the hour and by the day.
To play, support or adjudicate (Umpires) this weekend or not is of course up
to the Individual.
All Individuals need to take their own circumstances into account and should
not feel any pressure from anyone to be involved in matches this weekend.
At this point in time the MPCA do not believe that cancellation or
postponement of matches over this weekend is required.
A common-sense approach to reduce the risk of person-to-person transmission
of the COVID-19 Coronavirus, of all people involved in the game (whether
they be playing, support staff, administrators, volunteers or others) should
be taken.
The following measures should be put into effect by all cricket clubs/teams
to reduce the spread of all illnesses, including COVID-19: (See
Recommendations on links below for more details)

*   Communicate this information to everyone within your club, Players,
administrators, volunteers or others
*   If at all possible Hand sanitiser to be made available in change rooms
toilets etc they need to have an alcohol base and everyone should be
encouraged to use it along with washing of hands with soap especially prior
to meals.
*   Players should avoid using saliva as a method of shining the cricket
*   Do not share drinks, towels, lip balm, sunscreen with others (bring
your own)
*   Limit physical contact and proximity to others where possible ( not
Easy of course)
*   Limit sharing of cricket equipment (other than the ball)
The best way to protect yourself and your family is to pay attention to good
hand and respiratory hygiene. (See Recommendations on links below for more
details) Cover your mouth and nose when coughing and sneezing into a tissue,
or cough into your elbow, dispose of the tissue into a bin and then wash
your hands afterwards.

*   If you have concerns about your health, please see your doctor.
We will endeavour to keep clubs informed with any further recommendations or
changes to conditions as information becomes available.
