Recreational sporting activities has gotten the green light to resume in Trinidad and Tobago. As such the Division of Sport and Youth Affairs (DSYA) have taken steps to reconnect the power supply to hard courts and recreation grounds.
These changes are in-keeping with the update to Public Health Ordinance Ch. 12 No. 4 Regulation 3 (2), which indicates that Sub regulation (1) (c) shall in relation to recreation team sports be limited to participants of no more than twenty-two athletes where such sports are conducted outside of the building.
Secretary of Sport and Youth Affairs, Assemblyman Tracy Davidson-Celestine, has indicated that the resumption of public sporting activities is good news.
“One of the biggest challenges with COVID-19 is that it has limited our ability to engage in activities that are beneficial to the mental, emotional and physical health. With the resumption of recreational sports, Tobagonians can now enjoy outdoor team sports and group exercise again. While we are all pleased about the good news, we are still in the midst of a pandemic.”
The Division of Sport and Youth Affairs encourages the public to adhere to public health safety guidelines such as maintaining proper hygiene, washing of hands, sanitization of surfaces and practicing social distancing. This will contribute to our continued fight against the national and global threat of COVID-19.
