Uganda government opens door for safe return of sport

The wait is finally over; the Government of Uganda has given the green light for sports to return after issuing health and safety guidelines for sports to return behind closed doors.

For a while now, there have been signals given by the government on how sports can return, with disciplines grouped into categories from low risk to high risk.

The President of Uganda Yoweri Kaguta Museveni delivered the news athletes have been waiting to hear for close to six months when he announced the conditions under which competitive sports may resume.

Sports activities shall reopen provided there are no spectators,” Museveni said in his national address on Sunday.

As well as ensuring no spectators are present at events, conditions have been made for sports fixtures to go ahead.

Athletes must be screened for COVID-19 every two weeks (14 days) and everyone suspected of having the virus must be placed in isolation while social distancing must be maintained at all times.
