A Joint Administrative Order between the Philippine Sports Commission (PSC), the Games and Amusement Board (GAB) and the Department of Health (DOH) was released on Monday providing a guideline on the conduct of physical and sports activities during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Meaning, the 12 teams in the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) and the six squads in the Philippine Football League (PFL) can now start their conditioning as early as August 3.
PBA commissioner Willie Marcial clarified that resumption of practices will only begin six to eight days after the swab testing.
PSC Chairman Butch Ramirez expressed relief that the JAO has been finalized after over a month of collaboration with both agencies.
“We all recognize the importance sport plays in building one’s strong immune system, what we just wanted to ensure was that they keep safe and away from the virus while they are doing it,” explained the sports chief.
Ramirez, signed the joint issuance along with GAB Chairman Abraham Mitra and DOH Secretary Francisco Duque III. It covers non-professional sports under the jurisdiction of the PSC, professional sports under the GAB, professional and non-professional persons in sports like athletes, coaches, trainors, promoters and other parties involved in the conduct of sports like venue management, local government units, schools and workplaces.
Conditions and requirements for the conduct of sports are given for five risk severity ratings we now observe from high risk (enhanced community quarantine) to areas considered low risk or those classified under the Modified General Community Quarantine.
At present, the PSC is mid-way its online consultations with the different national sports associations (NSAs) to help them craft a guideline this time for the return of training of the national team, specifically those who are gunning for, or have qualified for the Olympics.
