The Abode Hotels ACT Meteors opening match of the Women’s National Cricket League (WNCL) has been postponed as a precautionary approach due to a recent confirmed case of COVID-19 within the local ACT cricket community.
Cricket ACT was made aware earlier in the week by ACT Health that a senior player within one of our high performance programs tested positive to COVID-19. The player is double vaccinated and otherwise feeling well and in good spirits.
Cricket ACT has been working closely with ACT Health to assist in identifying close and casual contacts, and as a result a number of high performance players and staff, including Meteors players, have been tested and undergoing a seven-day quarantine as per ACT Government directives. All initial tests have come back negative.
Details for the Meteors opening match, originally scheduled for December 16 vs Victoria at Junction Oval, are outlined below.
