Taiwan’s Chinese Professional Baseball League became the first baseball league to allow fans to attend games during the novel coronavirus pandemic.

Under strict physical distancing restrictions, up to 1,000 fans wearing face masks were permitted to watch both of Friday’s games in person.

Fans had their temperatures checked upon entering stadiums and sat at least three seats apart with every other row left empty.

Concession stands were closed, and spectators were not allowed to bring in food. Those who meandered the aisles were told by security guards to sit down.

The four-team league opened its season April 11 with no fans, but Friday’s decision to play in front of spectators suggests positive trends in Taiwan’s fight against covid-19, the disease caused by the virus.
