The MCC Members Reserve has been labelled as a new tier 2 exposure site after a COVID-19 after a member tested positive to the virus.

The fan attended the Carlton vs Geelong game on Saturday afternoon between 4pm and 8pm.

There were over 31,000 fans in attendance at the game but only those sitting on level 2 of the MCC wing are required to isolate and get tested.

The rest of the MCG is listed as a tier 3 exposure site with fans asked to monitor their symptoms.

Fans on level 2 of the MCC should get tested and isolate immediately until they receive results.

With the growing COVID situation in Victoria it has typically taken Western Australian Premier Mark McGowan no time to shut the borders. Luckily for the AFL, Geelong were able to fly out just in time so their clash with Fremantle can go ahead as planned on Thursday night.

AFL CEO Gillon McLachlan said on Wednesday that at this stage crowds will be at the footy in Victoria but it awaits to be seen whether those plans will hold firm through the week.
