Sports Minister Shamfa Cudjoe has announced that from this Monday, 22 February, sporting activities taking place for recreational purposes can resume.
Cudjoe, speaking at the Ministry of Health covid19 briefing, on Saturday, said “We are allowing outdoor sport only and that will be for recreational purposes…this is solely for the purpose of those who want to go out and play for their physical fitness and for their mental health. It is important that sporting bodies, sporting enthusiasts are knowledgeable and they understand what we are doing right now. It is important that we scale back or roll back slowly and we monitor the situation properly before we encourage larger gatherings.”
“We are not going to open up yet for leagues and that type of large activity that may attract larger crowds, so I am pleased (about) this roll back feature and that we are getting ready to go out and play once again,” she added.
Sports such as football and cricket can be held and these activities must involve 22 people or less.
