The Federal Government has partially rescinded its decisions on the suspension of sporting activities in country while lifting its ban on non-contact outdoor sports, the sportsbay.com reports.
It also approved the use of recreational parks for supervised physical exercise only.
It emphasised recreational parks are not to be used for social interaction purposes, asking those unable to enforce this to remain closed.
The National Coordinator of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19, Dr. Sani Aliyu, disclosed these during its briefing in Abuja.
“For recreational parks/communal sports, restrictions are removed on outdoor communal non-contact sports and the use of recreational parks for supervised physical exercise, not for social interactions. For recreational parks that are unable to enforce this, we expected them to remain closed.
“For outdoor non-contact sports, this includes lawn tennis, table tennis, squash, badminton, cycling, athletics, golf, polo, para-athletics, cricket and other non-contact outdoor communal activities, in the event that people are not certain, please contact the Federal Ministry of Youth and Sports for further guidance.”
