A Bakers Fields soccer stadium was closed because of an outbreak of the coronavirus.
Bakersfield City Council announced the closure on Sunday, which had been in place for several days, after a total of three confirmed cases were confirmed in the stadium.
The stadium, which has been the focus of protests by local residents, has been under lockdown for the past week.
The Bakers field was closed to traffic for the last three days as Bakersfields emergency management team worked to contain the virus.
City of Bakersland president Richard Ehrhardt said the city was committed to keeping the community safe, but added that BakersField’s safety is paramount.
“It is absolutely clear that the Bakers fields are the worst day in the city’s history,” Ehrhart said.
“We’re doing everything we can to ensure that Bakesfields safety is maintained at all times.”
Bakersfields will be open on Monday and Tuesday for all community activities.
We will also be keeping a close eye on our Bakers County Health Department and local health agencies to make sure the community is safe.
“In an earlier statement, the Bakerfield City Health Department said the stadium was the last site of its kind in the country, having opened in the 1970s.”
The Bakerfields stadium has been closed for over two weeks because of the situation in the Bakesfield area.
“During that time, no new cases of coronaviruses have been reported in Bakers,” the statement said.
The closure is the latest to impact the Bakingfield community in the last 24 hours.
On Sunday, the local government office in the suburb of Newbury closed its doors for the first time since it was built.
Local residents also staged a rally at the site of the Boneyard on Sunday night, where they demanded answers.
The local government, which oversees the Bakedfields, has denied any link to the outbreak.
The city of Bakerstown confirmed the Bases closure, saying that the facility would remain closed for a few days while officials assess the situation.
In a statement, Bakersbury Mayor Kevin Sussman said the closure was the result of the county health department’s determination to continue the city-owned stadium as a community resource.
“For the safety and wellbeing of the people who live and work in the community, we believe it is important to keep the B Bakerfield Soccer Stadium open for public events, as well as for the public’s enjoyment,” he said.
