The rumors reported earlier about baseball canceling Spring Training have been confirmed. The Dodgers will suspend all operations as Major League Baseball officially made the decision to call off games out of concerns for the coronavirus.
Announcement expected shortly that MLB will be suspending operations. More details to come.

Where we go from here is fairly uncertain. The Dodgers could continue to hold workouts, either in Arizona or back home in Los Angeles. Those workouts would be limited to players and coaching personnel only though, as fans will not be able to attend.
Hear that MLB will ask players to stay at spring sites where they have access to team medical personnel, can continue to work out and will not be fanning out across the country. But players can go as they please.

While there has not yet been an official announcement by Major League Baseball, several outlets are already calling the end of Spring Training, including The LA Times. The Dodgers have also yet to make an official announcement, and Manager Dave Roberts declined to comment to reporters.
Opening Day is still very much in question at the moment, as the league has less than two weeks now to reach an official decision.
