“Sports activities may resume without any spectators and must comply with the health protocols. A match may only include players, match officials, journalists, emergency medical service, security personnel, radio [and] television crew and support staff, and the necessary employers of the owners of the venue,” reads the gazette.
“Each media house may deploy one representative to cover a match. Only individual pre-packed meals with disposable drinking bottles are allowed in the sporting venue.”
All sports bodies are encouraged to comply with the guidelines for quarantine and isolation concerning Covid-19 exposure and infection issued by the department of health.
The minister advised all athletes and support staff to test for Covid-19 before the resumption of sporting activities.
As was the case with the recently concluded bio-bubble, PSL teams must continue to use compliance officers to “oversee the implementation of the operational plan for each activity”.
The minister added that all travelling teams must provide Covid-19 test results of their members 72 hours before departure. If individuals travelling with them are unable to produce negative certificates, they must be quarantined at their own cost.
