It was originally reported that the Mets were shutting down their facilities at Port St. Lucie entirely, but more clarity has been given on the situation.
A team official told reporters that the Mets are actually abiding by MLB's most recent memo that gave a strong recommendation against conducting any group workouts, which is what the team will be shutting down. But the gym and treatment facilities will remain accesible to players if they choose to use them.
This news comes one day after the league announced that the start of the regular season will be delayed further. The league is adhering to CDC guidelines of not having gatherings of 50 or more people for the next eight weeks. "Social distancing" was already recommended by MLB as well for those players that wanted to remain at the team's site.
Since the coronavirus (also known as COVID-19) pandemic led to the shuttering of all major sports late last week, things have escalated as social distancing in order to prevent the spread of the virus has become the norm.
