Face coverings still required during recreational sports


    Persons taking part in outdoor recreational sports as allowed under the new COVID-19 regulations must still wear a face covering.

    This is according to Health Minister Terrence Deyalsingh, speaking at this morning’s COVID-19 briefing, as the adjusted regulations come into effect today.

    These activities must be limited to participants of no more than 22 athletes and must be conducted outside of a building.

    However, Mr Deyalsingh says the regulation on face coverings must still be adhered to.

    According to COVID-19 regulations, a face covering is a covering of any type which covers the nose, mouth and chin of the person wearing it.
