Local events cancelled as coronavirus crisis gathers pace

The coronavirus crisis could mean that Campbelltown Sports Stadium will host an NRL match later this month without any fans present.

A decision was made yesterday that all round two NRL games will be played in empty stadiums because of the government’s imposition of bans on gatherings of 500 people or more.

The round three Wests Tigers versus Bulldogs game is scheduled for 4pm on Sunday, March 29 and the odds are that it will also be played behind closed doors.

The NRL will make a final determination on this clash and all round three matches next week.

The next Wests Tigers and Bulldogs clash at Campbelltown Stadium may be played without any fans allowed to attend.

The other big event that could become a victim of the coronavirus is the 2020 Camden Show.

Camden Show Society is believed to be considering postponing or cancelling the popular event.

The odds are that it will  lean towards cancellation with a decision expected some time today.

Camden Council has already postponed the seniors’ festival concert and the bus trip excursion which are part of the 2020 Camden seniors festival program.

Yesterday the council announced that in consultation with the Australian Botanic Gardens Mount Annan, the 2040 movie screening planned for tonight (Saturday, March 14) has also been postponed to a future date.

Campbelltown Council has announced that the 2020 Challenge Walk has been postponed amid concerns about the virus and public health.

The event was due to be held this Sunday, March 15 at the Australian Botanic Gardens Mount Annan.

Participants will be notified and offered a full refund of their entry fee.

Another event that has been cancelled due to the coronavirus is the Melanoma March event on Sunday, March 29 in Camden and other areas.
