Sport events permitted subject to approval; gyms may open at 50% capacity
Sport events are now permitted and gyms and fitness centres can re-open at 50% capacity under the new COVID-19 measures. From November 1 to 30, the curfew would be from 22:30h to 04:00h.
The new measures state that sporting events are permitted, subject to the approval of the Minister of Health and in compliance with any guidelines that the Ministry of Health may issue.
Every person or organiser hosting an approved sporting event shall be responsible for ensuring that the measures under the notice, as well as the guidelines that the Ministry of Health may issue are complied with.
Gyms and fitness centres may be opened, but only at 50% capacity of the building and by appointments only to minimise the risk and spread of the coronavirus.
The operator of a gym and fitness centre shall be responsible for ensuring that their staff and customers comply with the notice and any guidelines issued by the Ministry of Health.
Any person, operator or organiser, who is allowed to host an event or operate a business, fails to comply with the notice or any guidelines issued by the Ministry of Health, the Minister of Health may close the operation of that business or prohibit the event.
Physical exercise is permitted only in parks, on roads, seawalls, beaches and by rivers and creeks, and where group exercise is conducted persons shall maintain a physical distance of six feet from each other.
