Strict physical distancing measures ahead of reopening of sports facilities

https://www.straitstimes.com/sport/c...f-reopening-of

When sports facilities reopen on Friday (June 19), they will have to*follow strict physical distancing measures*announced by national sports agency Sport Singapore (SportSG) in an updated advisory issued on Wednesday (June 17).

Venues such as stadiums, swimming complexes, sports halls, hard courts, gyms, fitness studios, golf courses and bowling centres, including those in condominiums, golf and country clubs, are among*the facilities that will be allowed to reopen in two days.

The operating capacity of these facilities is restricted to 10 sq m per person, or a maximum of 50 people per facility.


A distance of 2 metres should be kept between individuals who are engaged in exercise and sports, but those involved in high intensity or high movement exercises indoors must be 3m apart.

Group activities are limited to no more than five participants and if there is more than one group sharing a space, the groups should not interact with each other and must be 3m apart.

An additional instructor or coach can join the group.

Although masks need not be worn while performing strenuous activities, it is still recommended as good practice under such circumstances, added SportSG.

Sharing of equipment such as weights and basketballs should be avoided, but if it is not possible then equipment should be wiped down or sanitised frequently.

While contact sports are permitted, they should also make modifications to avoid extensive body contact.

Operators of sports facilities must appoint a safe management officer to ensure compliance with measures.

All sports and recreation facilities*must also implement SafeEntry*for participants and visitors. Temperature screening is also mandatory while employees and visitors are encouraged to use the TraceTogether app.

The advisory also included venue-specific precautionary measures that will be in place.

These include the introduction of lane ropes in swimming pools and specific swimming timings for seniors and the general public in ActiveSG pools.

Lap swimming for seniors is limited from 6.30am to 8.45am, while lap swimming for the general public is from 6.30pm to 9.30pm.

There will be extended operating hours at Our Tampines Hub, Sengkang, Yio Chu Kang, Jurong Lake and Kallang Basin swimming pools, from 6.30pm to 12.30am to cater to public lap swimmers. These facilities used to close at 9pm.

Several ActiveSG facilities will remained closed. Among them are the Jalan Besar Stadium, MOE Evans Stadium and swimming complexes at Choa Chu Kang, Delta, Hougang, Jalan Besar, Jurong West, MOE, Bishan and Yio Chu Kang's competition pool.

These parameters will be reviewed from time to time, and more persons may be allowed at a later juncture in Phase Two, taking into account how well the safe measures are implemented by operators and the compliance of the users in these settings, and the broader Covid-19 situation at the time.

2m, 3m, 5 participants, 50 people.

Wedding, funeral 20 pax.
Dining table 1 m apart, 5 per table.

How they derived these figures? Based on what evidences?

Private gyms jialat. They are so overly subscribed, members sure make noise for equal chance to use the facilities.

I bet that was the intent all along in the name of pandemic.
